It's been another busy week around our old Kentucky home. Lots of planting still taking place...flowers, berry bushes, and, of course, more veggies, too. The biggest change is virtually invisible: a new 7-foot fence surrounding the vegetable garden. The fence is of a material so thin, it cannot be seen until you are right up on it. We are also hoping it will help deter the deer this year. Also on the prowl for the garden's bounty - this year a family of bold bunnies have taken up residence the neighborhood. The other day, two of bunnies were sitting across the street and appeared to be watching...and waiting for us to look the other way so they could come across and help themselves to our salad bar (sad, funny, and true!).
The weather has been really great for the early starts, so, if we can derail the plans of the local raiders, we are expecting abundant produce from our little pea patch on the hill.
I thought our Porch Party was another great success. I am always in awe of the great information that can be gleaned from your party posts... natural home remedies, how to transform a table to a beautiful ottoman, how to restore a clawfoot tub on a budget, and how to make a self-watering planter , as well as how-tos for better bacon, brats, and burgers (just in time for summer grilling).
Thank you again for sharing your talents, secrets, and time! I am so happy you're here!
