June in my Louisiana Garden

My dear friends!

I apologize for not posting more often. A veterinarian near me had to have major back surgery, and I have been filling in for him at his clinic. Between that,my three kiddos, the garden, the animals, and summer camps, I barely have time for writing. 

But today I’m talking a minute to update you from the farm. The garden is in full swing, along with the fruit trees, and we’ve even had a new Beef Heifer. 

Here’s a little tour:

The fig tree is full and we are beginning to get a few ripe ones. 

Pears are making an appearance. 

My navel orange trees will give us just enough to eat this fall. They are 3 years old now and just beginning to mature. 

These are extra tomato plants that I threw out in the bean patch. Same exact tomatoes as the next photo, only planted outside of my raised bed, which we filled with cow manure and composted hay from the pasture. I think you’ll be impressed at the difference good soil makes. 

Here’s the beginning of the tomato harvest:

We prefer Romas. 

And I’ll close with a picture of our newest beef Heifer. She was born Thursday, June 8, 2017 right in the middle of the day. You can see she is still wet from amniotic fluid and her navel is fresh. 

I promise to do better!

Blessings to you and yours!
