Welcome to “Our Little Red Saltbox”! I’m so glad you stopped by for a visit.
I was just taking a walk through our vegetable garden, apple orchard and flowers. Don’t you just love doing that? The birds are singing their morning tune, the wind is whispering welcome in your ear, while the sun warms you into a new day.
Our peas are looking pretty good. I need to run some strings for them to pull themselves up on. I love fresh peas straight from the garden!
I think we’re going to see some blossoms on our string beans soon!
This is probably my favorite bed. It’s where all the greens are planted. I can’t wait to make a big salad with them!
Mmmmm! Red potatoes! I have never really been a potato fan, except for sweet potatoes, but I do love brand new red potatoes fresh from the garden. Nothing like’em!
Chives! Another great addition to my big salad. I think I might make some garlic and chive mashed potatoes for dinner tonight.
Our lilacs are just starting to really pop. I love the smell of them! I think I may go out a pick a few to put inside today.
Don’t you love fresh flowers in your home? I even fill a tiny little bud base to put on my bathroom vanity.
I really need to weed, but probably not today. (giggle)
I did get this bed weeded, but I still need to add some mulch.
I’m not so sure it’ll be a very good year for our apples. We have a few dead trees. The deer like to come up and eat the bark, which kills the tree. I do love seeing the deer, but it also means a few less jars of applesauce.
This is a shade garden that I planted over 25 years ago. The fence has fallen and it has really gone wild, but I do love the look it has created for itself. There are a few daffodils, lilies, hostas and even something my mother in law called youth and old age.
This is our someday house lot. We hope to have our little red saltbox built on it soon!
