The biggest sunflower head we've ever grown.

This one was a volunteer sunflower from bird feeder spillage.

We pressure canned a bunch of grape juice.

We love our steam juice, and our pressure canner!

Our chickens love fresh oats!

Our chickens love when we let them loose in an oat patch.

The carrots, and beets are doing well.  We can't wait until harvest time!

Okra flowers are beautiful.

The plans I drew up for the A-frame the guineas live in.  The plan calls for 2"x4" lumber but I ended up using 2"x3" because there is no real load bearing on them, and they are considerably cheaper.  I did use 2"x4" for the ridge pole, and the bottom plates because I wasn't able to get pressure treated 2"x3"s nor was I able to get a single 12' long 2"x3" for the ridge pole.
