Life in general

Whew, it's good to be back on blog! Every now and then I take a long break from blogging, not on purpose but because I just don't have time for it.

I'm back though!

Lately, I've been thinking more about college. It is right around the corner again: I'm leaving next Monday and won't be back until Christmas break! :-( So I'm starting to pack boxes and my bags to take to California.

In the meantime however, I've been keeping busy with events and just normal living around my house.

We had a small bridal shower for Martha the other week. That was nice.

As it gets closer and closer to Autumn, I find myself working in the rain a lot more... :)

Before it started getting really chilly, every Sunday afternoon was "pool time at Martha's house." I think this picture is so funny!

And one Sunday afternoon, Katie drove over Martha's well... :-)

In the church nursery with my niece.


That's about it for now. I will keep updating my blog as it gets closer to my departure...

Until then!~

Growing season

It's growing season here at Orchard Country Produce and we are feeling it!

Picking apples, peaches, pears, plums, EVERYTHING! It's just all coming in at the same time.

I finally got around to taking some pictures of all these fruits and vegetables.

Asian Pears

HUGE heirloom tomatoes. This particular one is a pink brandywine.

Getting ready to pick peaches.

Castleton plums


Some of these trees were so loaded that the branches were snapping...:(

My favorite alien-looking vegetable to pick: Kohlrabi

Lemon Cucumbers

That is pretty much what I have been up to! :-) I'll post more later.
