Harvest Time

It's harvest time here on the estate. The garden has already brought forth a bounty of Swiss chard, zucchini, hot peppers and promises much more as the season progresses. We just love going into the garden to see what we are going to have for dinner.

The hens are beginning to lay eggs. And our rooster has finally learned to crow. When he started to find his voice he sounded like he was using a kazoo.

And the bees brought forth their first contribution of nine quarts. Honey extraction is a lot of work, but it has it's rewards.

All of these pictures represent many, many hours of preparation and work but, boy, has it been fun!
