Green Pumpkins in July

I'm so excited about our Pumpkin patch that I'm already taking pictures :)
Even though it's been a VERY wet summer and I've lost some pumpkins due to rot, there's still a bunch of "survivors" that are sooo cute!

And here's a teeny-weeny Watermelon.

Varieties of Echinacea

I Love growing Echinacea! Probably because I have such respect for the medicinal properties of Echinacea angustifolia and Echinacea purpurea. At home if there's any sign of a cold or sore throat then out comes the Echinacea bottle!

Here's a new Echinacea we grew this year called "Green Jewel" It stays green all season and compliments the other plant colors~

Another new Echinacea for us is the "Pink Double Delight" LOVE IT!!

This one Looks Fantastic at the corner of the barn~ Love how the Yarrow & Pineapple Mint look next to it too~

Harvest of Orange Mint

The first harvest of Orange Mint was brought in today~ My Favorite!

Veggie Garden in July

Look'n Good!
Everything is filling out in the Veggie Garden~

My first shot at growing cabbage & so far they look Great!

Dill amongst the Tomatoes~ couldn't bring myself to pulling them out when they started sprouting everywhere from last years crop. Now they are Huge!

Aaaah Sweet Peas. First time growing these too. Next year I'll make a mesh net for them to climb on. Live & Learn :)

And here's a shot of our Rainbow Kale~ Tastes great steamed in olive oil & garlic!!

Brown Sugar Body Scrub

I just finished creating these Brown Sugar Scrubs & I LOVE them!
The fractionated coconut oil makes your skin smooth without feeling greasy~ It also doesn't go rancid like a lot of vegetable oils do. I've also added a subtle scent of Amber & Vanilla. A great exfoliating blend that is reasonable priced too :)

Wild Baby Turkeys

I was just about to head out of the door this morning when the baby turkey's came running over to the bird feeder~ So I got my camera and started taking some pics~

Mother Turkey came over to investigate who was taking the pictures~
I wouldn't want to mess with her!
