The Country Garden Showcase #41 Special Edition!

Happy Monday!
It's been another crazy weekend... If you've read recent posts you know that we just started escrow on our dream homestead.  It's a fixer-upper on the Kaweah River with about 7 acres to farm and graze.  Things have been moving along so well, we cannot help but feel as if our heavenly father has been helping us.  

Well, Friday we called the local real estate agent that sold our current home to us, back in 1995.  She came by to look at the place at about 10am.  She came back with clients she thought "might" like our home just a few hours later, and by 5:30pm we were signing the contract for the sale.  It's SOLD!!!! Whew!  Things have been moving at the speed of light around here lately, and my head is swirling just trying to keep up.  I keep thinking I must be dreaming.  Things can't really be falling into place so perfectly like this, can they?  

Well, since we start escrow here on this place today and we will have to be out in 45 days... this will likely be my last chance to share pictures from my gardens here because everything is staying.  Even the coop and three hens.  The buyers liked everything as is, and even made the sale contingent on the coop, arbor,and three hens.  Don't you just love that?  I did.  I am going to miss my greenhouse and raised garden beds, but we can build more later on.  I am so grateful to this nice couple.  I was really worried about  moving the garden and coop if a buyer would not want them.

Here are a few pictures from my gardens from the last year or so...

Thank you for reading and for supporting me as I have taken my gardening and homesteading journey.  I look forward to sharing my next garden journey with you.

Okay, if you have a garden post you'd like to share... please get right to it!


  1. Congratulations! This is such a great opportunity even though it can be a little sad to leave something you built and made so perfect. I thought I'd be very upset leaving my old house but it surprised me that I wasn't. Maybe it will be that way for you too- many more challenges ahead, lots of great blog post opportunities too!!!! I can't wait to see what you're going to do now.

  2. Wow, that is God at work for sure. It must be somewhat bittersweet to leave all that behind, but what joy to know your hard work will be appreciated! And how exciting that you will have 7 acres to work with...

  3. Are you leaving the bee hives? Such beautiful pictures and all that work you are leaving for the new owners! Can't wait to see your new must be heaven for you to leave all this behind.


  4. Nice Post. You have a good garden. Having your own garden really helps a lot.
