Moseying in the Mornings

One of my favorite things to do during the summertime
is to mosey around outside in the early morning
before it gets too hot.

Oftentimes, even before the rest of the house is awake,
Miss Daisy and I will head out to check on the gardens and the animals.
The little eggs I found last month have hatched
and the baby birds are a week old now.
I check on them every day and I love when I 
sometimes see the momma bird feeding them. 

The green bean plants are coming up that I planted last week
We put them in the garden where the onions were. 

I usually water my herbs first thing in the morning.
And again in the evening.

My basil is doing really well.

I use cilantro a lot in my cooking
and I've been picking it just as fast as it grows!

The fresh mint is so delicious in my ice tea.

I planted some sunflowers in my cutting garden
and they started to come up last week.

The garden is really doing well this year.
Our tomato plants are covered with all varieties of tomatoes.
We pick them at the first hint of pink and let them ripen
on the widow sill.  It only takes a day or two and they're perfect.

You are coming along very well! I love the baby wild birds, especially when they are big enough to be all fuzzy but the mom still has to feed them! So cute.

Your tomatoes look great! I pray ours do well this year. Sometimes we get bottom rot. They will look beautiful on top then the bottom will hold a nasty surprise.

Have a blessed day!

You have a beautiful garden! My chickens love to eat cilantro! Have you ever fed some to yours? Blessings.
