A Week of Growth

Wow.

After a week away from the homestead, visiting family in Alaska, Ray and I returned to absolutely amazing growth in our gardens. The broccoli, the cauliflower, the tomatoes…okra, squash, lettuce, strawberries…the weeds…everything had nearly doubled in size.

The hens are growing
Their combs quickly coming in
