The Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop #62

It's been another busy and productive week on our little suburban homestead.  
Jerry finished the chicken garden gate
and he got in a few lengths of three rail fencing that will eventually keep the chicks inside their garden
 I finally ammended the soil for the chicken garden this week too
 I just finished getting it all planted tonight.  The hot weather this week has been slowing me down a bit.
My sweetheart Salmon Favorelles have been separated from the big girls because they keep injuring their feathered feet.  They've become our little welcome birds.  They have their own daytime garden and they sleep in a portable dog house in the hen house at night.  I hope this changes soon.
My little Queenie shouted his first crows this morning as I let them out into the yard.  Four beautiful calls.  My little babies are all growing up.  Those are raspberries scattered on the ground.  Since I got the bees, my raspberry vines are FULL of handfuls of ripe berries every day.  That's so exciting to me.
I have the best friends.  This week on two separate occasions my friends spent their HOT afternoons helping me inspect hives and search for my elusive italian queen.  Thank you guys.  
We didn't find her yet, but she's there.  I continue to find nice brand new capped brood on every inspection and watch young bees take orientation flights in the afternoons.  
My greenhouse tomatoes are full of tomatoes.  I saw a few turning colors today, finally.   Well, that's it for this farmgirl.

Now it's your turn to flaunt your farmgirl/guy spirit!

1.) Write a post about your farmgirl lifestyle and brag a little about your farmgirl talents while your at it! Share what being a farmgirl means to you. Include lots of photos of your farm, crafts, animals, quilts, home decor projects and thrifty make overs, your backyard garden, chicken coop, recipes, studio or workshop. You get the idea!

2). Leave your entry in the Mr. Linky space to your Farmgirl Friday post.

3). Please include the Farmgirl Friday button ( or link back here ) in your post and remember to share this hop with all of your blogging friends!

Have a great week everyone and thank you so much for all you share here every Friday!
