The Fruit of the Land

It's been nearly a year since we've been living the farm life.  And we're at the best time of the year, when we can really enjoy the fruit of the land.

Our garden is in full production these days.  It's come a long way from planting day back in May.

The corn is officially taller than most of us.

We've been having garden fresh suppers that include foods like potatoes, dill, green beans and peas.

And we have a bumper crop of zucchinis.  I've already got enough grated zucchini in my freezer for a couple dozen batches of muffins.

We've enjoyed the first of many yellow plums.

And a few apples as well.

And the other night we discovered that there were ripe blackberries along the east fence that were waiting to be enjoyed.

And I would be remiss if I didn't include the beef.

Our big mama cows and their calves came back to the farm after vacationing at the neighbour's pasture for the past couple of months.

(Willy & Russell)

These calves are not little babies anymore.  And as cute as this face is, I can't help imagine the nice juicy steaks that we will be enjoying sometime in the not-so-distant future...
