The weather has been incredible. Clear skies and a cool breeze. That's why I want to get as much done as possible on the flowerbeds and of course mowing and edging because soon enough, it will be rainy and then REALLY hot.
The road on the way to the farm.
Lined with happy yellow flowers.
When I got there, "J" from 2nd Family told me that their ducks were hanging around our house for some reason. Sure enough, I got out of the car and there they were, just chilling in the shade under the back of the house. They stayed for awhile and the one on the left in this photo kept coming over to my car to watch me unload stuff (and being very vocal). But when I went in the house, the spot they were under is the mudroom above and my walking around in there scared them off and they flew back home.
About 20 minutes after they left, she called to tell me all three were happily splashing around in their plastic kiddie pool, ha.
I got a lot done and headed back into town (the road on the way out). I'll have pics of the work later. Hint, front flowerbeds are done! We were originally both going to the farm and were going to spend the night but 2nd Man had to work from home at the last minute (the company he works for runs 24/7 around the world so we never know). He wanted to cook dinner for me after my hard work so hey, who am I to argue with that?
|Iron skillet roasted chicken|
I came back to iron skillet roasted chicken.
Super simple: rub with olive oil and salt, pop in an iron skillet and roast in the oven at 450 degrees for about an hour. Golden and delicious.
|Corn, peas and lemon thyme|
Then one of my new favorite sides that he makes, corn and peas with butter and lemon thyme. AMAZING flavor combination. That's why we are growing lemon thyme at the farm!
As this posts, I'll be back out there mowing and edging. Hoping to cut the day short and come back and rest, I'm definitely worn out after yesterday!
