Summer recap

This summer was really busy. About the middle of June, the garden started really producing and I started going down to pick cucumbers, green beans, other vegetables, and plant the fall garden. I didn’t finish school until the end of June, and directly after that, the garden started producing like crazy. July through August I would go down to can tomatoes and pick in the mornings. In July, we bought an RV trailer, I hosted a giveaway, found out that my aunt is expecting a girl (!!!), and went to a wedding.


In August we went camping, went to waterfalls, celebrated my birthday, went out to lunch with my dad, finished my skirt, cut my hair, did lots of canning and garden work, joined a club that Granddaddy started (Watermelon Eaters Anonymous), started experimenting with portrait photography. September has been a lot quieter. I think that the most fun things about September were going on a picnic with my besties and to a book sale. August was definitely the busy month of the summer!

So there’s my summer recap! It was super busy and very typical for us on the farm. What did you do this summer?

singing off,
