A couple in their 60's, a 1940's army building turned into a 3 bedroom cottage, 2.5 acres, vegetable and herbal gardens, goats, chickens, ducks, geese, rabbits, Great Pyrenees, rescue dogs and cats, living as simple and frugal as possible. That is what you will find written about here. Thank you for stopping by. Share anything you like and ask any questions you wish!
I was able to spend most of the day (inbetween care of the animals) in the herb garden. I cut some pineapple basil and chives to fill a dehydrator. The dehydrators will be running 24/7 now that herbs are growing so well. I have a batch of chamomile/coconut oil salve in the works, ready to pour tomorrow. All the herbs from last year have came back big and strong except my lavender. It is over 4 years old so have planted a new one. The new herbs I planted this year are starting to take off. Had a nice shower of rain this afternoon that really helped all the gardens. I worked some on Kuma's grave in the corner of the herb garden. I planted a ton of sunflower seeds at the foot and on the outside the fence at the head of the grave I planted a lilac bush. There is a birdhouse, bird bath, and bird feeder in that corner and its a nice sunny spot. Think she would be happy I picked that spot. I took her sign off her doghouse to hang over her marker. It's weather worn but until I make a new one seems to fit perfectly. All I have left to do is cover the grave with white pea gravel. I love going out and sitting in the herb garden every chance I get. It is so peaceful and now Kuma is there to bring me special memories.
