Visiting with a fellow Garden Blogger
"The Italian" and I spent the day with Jody, Belle & the two little guys at Spring Garden Acre.
We had a great time!
You can see their main garden, the chicken coop in the middle back, meat chickens to the left and the empty hill in the front is where the wonderful tasting watermelons and cantaloupe where planted.
Here are some of their fall crops in the side garden.
Look at these beautiful broccoli starts that were germinated inside and ready to be planted!
There was a lot going on!!
There were chickens.....and
some great entertainment!!! and...
lots of great food! Belle made a wonderful salad of fresh lettuce and tomatoes from the garden. We also had some home grown Bar-BQ Chicken and I brought some home made baked beans. Everything was so good that I was too worried about eating it and didn't take any pictures...except for the best watermelon we have had all summer...fresh from their garden! We ended the meal with home baked shortbread, cookies and coffee!
We came home with these wonderful gifts! Two bottles of wine that they made. One bottle is Peach Wine and the other bottle is Apple Wine. We were also blessed with a jar of Belle's Cold Packed Dill Pickles and 5 hand knitted dish clothes! I don't know how she knew that I was in desperate need of dish clothes!
Thanks Jody, Belle and the boys for a Wonderful Day!
