Wow..was today and adventure!

First thing this morning, the hubby and I went a'pickin'. That's right, picking blackberries that is. Out to Maple Ridge Farm we drove and picked 13 1/2 pounds of blackberries and somewhere between 8-10 lbs of peaches. Yep, you read that right THIRTEEN and A HALF pounds! I also got a birds nest for free! (found an old birdsnest in one of the peach trees, so brought it along with the peaches!) There's a couple of cantelope hiding in there too! So you know what I'll be doing over the next few days? It's jammin' time again, Blackberry jam and dill pickles!

WOW! The picture doesn't show it, but trust me, that's a lot of blackberries!

After coming home, we began putting up our pool and went to our own garden. EGADS the cucumbers are going to run us over! We collected cucumbers, tomatoes, jalapenos, okra and TWO huge pumpkins! I didn't get pictures of the pumpkins and such yet, but maybe today.

We got a few visitors to our little Farm yesterday, one big surprise one. Ashley, our daughter visited bringing Brayden for his first trip to the farm! The first thing he did of course, we take a nap in the new 'moses' bed I picked up at a community yard sale in Virginia. He's so cute!

Brayden was not the only visitor we got. Several people came over to see him, matter of fact.. the local LAW inforcement! (Both of them!) Silly me couldn't find her camera when Dennis visited, but did get a shot of Buckwild with the newest arrival late that night.

(hmm, we may have had a spiritual visitor as well!) take a look at that orb near Buckwild's head will ya?? There's mama standing proud with the little bundle and the big guy! Brayden looks so small in Tony's arms. It's hilarious!

So we've had an adventerous day here on the Farm. There was a big bad storm that came in after Brayden and Ashley arrived. Took out my coffee pot and more! (will have to tell that adventure another day!)

Everyone settled into bed, even Brayden was comfy in the Moses bed, his night was good, so he's hanging out and sleeping like he does. Doesnt' have a care in the world does he?
That's it for our Saturday adventures on the farm! Come join us again, you never know what we'll get into around here! Till next time
