Five on Friday

I have just came across Amy at Love Made My Home Five On Friday.
Here in her own words of what it is:
Five On Friday is a way to share Five things - on a Friday!  They can be connected, or not.  You could choose to share five quotes and say why they mean something to you, five pictures from your garden, five favorite flowers, five cakes, five anything that you like!  

I read that and realize this was something I felt was a wonderful idea of sharing a little something without have to fill a whole post. There are a lot of things here on the farm that I don't feel I have enough to write about. Partly because I'm not a writer and its hard at times to do. This is a lot like how at times the posting of pictures I've done on Saturday but with a little narrative.  

Amy has a link up for bloggers to post there Five On Friday and for us to read and see what others have contributed.

So here is my first attempt.

One - Over this pass week we have had some unusual amount of rain, here it is July one of dryer months and we received 5 inches in 3 days. That's a lot. 

Two -  With all that rain, the seeds I planted thrive in the straw bales. The bush beans are doing good. I do see thou there are a few spaces I'll need to reseed.

Three - Now not all the veggies in the garden cared for all that rain. My onions did not get very big this year. We have had a wet and cool spring and the onions just didn't get what they like. Then with all this moisture I had to pull them in fear that they could rot like my cabbage did.

Four - The tomatoes are digging it. Check out all those green tomatoes. I am weary that they might be infected by a soil borne virus cause from all the rain.

Five - I little beauty from outside to grace the inside of my home. Nothing I relish more than what nature offers.


  1. Thank you so much for joining us for the first time Kat! It is lovely to get to visit your blog and read your post - which is so exactly in the Five On Friday spirit! I hope that all of your different veggies grow well for you. I love the flowers that you picked for the house, they are gorgeous aren't they! I hope that you are having a great weekend and that you will take part in Five On Friday again. I will now be following you along with bloglovin which is what I use to follow blogs. Thank you again! xx

  2. Hello. It was so nice to read your blog today. Can you send some of your rain to southern California, please? Your garden looks lovely. My tomatoes look the same as yours and we haven't had any rain. I hope you're having a fabulous weekend.

  3. Welcome! I'm fairly new at Five on Friday myself. Loved your five. That hay bale gardening idea is awesome! Your black-eyed susans are so pretty. Hope you get some relief from the rain soon.

  4. The flowers looked beautiful, a real delight and I love how you have decorated the vase. Fingers crossed the tomatoes are not infected they certainly look good.

  5. The rain has really been a mixed blessing this year hasn't it? I guess we just have to take the good with the bad. Hopefully your tomatoes will all be good and not sick.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
