Fun day at the Fair!

Next it was on to the poultry barn, where I was able to indulge myself looking at all of the breeds I hope to one day own. I adore chickens and hope to have my own layers someday!
 I really liked this Roo! I wish I could have gotten a better picture of him, but he wouldn't stop his crazy dinosaur dance!

This sweet little calf is so pretty! And I am in LOVE with Jersey cows! They are beautiful, soft, gentle and affectionate! Oh I want...I want...!!

Happy 4th of July!

Here are some pics of my garden, which is growing like gangbusters this year!! My pole beans are reaching over their 6 foot support. 

My cucumbers have exploded with blossoms! Yeah! We will have pickles this year!
 Here is a picture of the healthier of the only 2 sunflowers that made it past the seedling stage. I didn't do well with seedlings this year, and had to buy most of my plants. It kind of feels like cheating to me. Next year I am going to use my brother's greenhouse to start my seeds, so they get enough light.
 We have already decided to double our garden space next year. There just isn't enough room. I also want to separate out my herbs and put them in their own plot. a lot of them are getting overshadowed by some of the larger plants. You learn a little more every year!
