A Month? Seriously??

Yes, I came home. Reluctantly.

I love Okinawa! The people are charming and so dear. The island is beautiful! The Mr. and Mrs. Airman are marvelous! Pictures soon, I promise!

To sum up the month:

Went to Okinawa.
Came home.
Slept 15 hours straight as it took 37 hours to get home. Don't ask.
Back to work.
Anabelle (the goat) had triplets -- two bucks and a doe.
Weeded 149 asparagus plants.
Planted four rows of peas, two of radishes, one of parsnips, one of collards, and two of beets.
Planted 50 blackberry bushes.
Completed a "certified bee keeper" class. Yeppers. Not only am I bona fide, I am certified!
Interviewed to become an artisian vendor at Grayson Highlands State Park (this is a biggie for me and I am thrilled; will know next week.)
Somehow managed to clean out all my clothes to things that fit and feel good. I will only slightly brag when I say that I tossed six garbage bags of clothes for our local charity. Yeah. That felt good!
Built and planted a raised bed for lettuce and strawberries. Both are up. Berries blooming. Lettuce darling.
Waiting for the tractor held hostage in Japan. Honestly, I could have ridden it home. Mostly.

I have missed visiting you all! What have you been into??


  1. So glad to have you back!! You sound and working on 1000 projects seem to agree with you! I'm just working, working, working...oh, and rug hooking and going to hook-ins. We need to build several raised beds very soon!

  2. Welcome back, Matty! Glad you had a lovely time. Becoming a artisan vendor sounds like something you would enjoy. My garden is keeping me busy too. This year I'm going to try not to till, so I'm turn it the old-fashioned way. Glad I have a strong back!

  3. Dear Matty,

    You're back; yay! I've missed you, too, and hope you have lots of goodies to share with us about your trip. :)

    Here you've been living the real thing, that I had to drive to a store to get (Asian food).



    p.s. I'll get my muck boots and come on over to help!

  4. I am so glad you are back! But boy are you busy... We have just been so Lazy around here.. Lol... I am still not where I need to be and my house is getting messier by the day....


Thanks for dropping in on the farm today! I enjoy your comments!
