farm filled weekend

::harvesting veggies from the local farm
::bees! the kiddos got to see who makes our honey
::the biggest beet and blackberry in all the land!
::a thoughtful (or tired?) pause
::Asian pears from right out the front door
::we'll have rows someday, too
::standing on his own two feet
::they say his name is Dalai
::hay ride!
::sweet corn teether  ;)

We had the priviledge of enjoying a lovely weekend full of summer's harvest. From picking the fruit off my dad's trees--thanks, Dad!--to visiting our local CSA farm's open house, to canning salsa for the first time (yay!), we feel blessed to enjoy the simple pleasures all around us.


  1. This looks like a wonderful way to spend a weekend! I can't wait till Friday now, we are going to Wenatchee to pick apples and pears and then make apple butter, and can pears!

  2. oh, that sounds lovely. you should stop by the Applets and Cotlets factory, too. or maybe that's in Cashmere?
