Farm Photo Friday (June 2, 2017)

Welcome to Farm Photo Friday at LL Farm.

These pictures show  the 'real life' stuff that is going on during this busy season on our homestead.
All of these pictures were taken on my cell phone and have not been edited.
Warning!  I didn't even crop out the weeds.  ;-)

Actually, the garden isn't finished with gravel yet.  Once completed, it will be more pretty, but I wanted to share with you how the raised beds are doing.
Handy Hubby built them, and I love them.  They truly make gardening easier.

The cattle panels have been put in place for the tomatoes and cucumbers to grow up.

Two cattle panels form a teepee for the sugar snap peas to grow up.
This is my first time growing peas and I look forward to the harvest.

The zucchini are already to start flowering.

I have thinned the radishes so they can grow bigger.
Radishes are another first for me to grow.  Aren't they cute?  And, will be delicious I'm sure.

Garden fresh lettuce...yum!

The cows were recently taken to a nearby butcher.

The dust bath 'spa' is a popular destination for the ladies.

Pumpkin, our newest barn kitten is growing and exploring.

Fence posts and wildflowers...their beauty draws me in every year.

A fresh layer of mulch has been laid.

Flowers and flowering bushes have been planted.

And, even the farmhouse got a new addition...a window box, made by Handy Hubby of course.

I apologize that my beloved blog falls to the back burner sometimes.  I do post to instagram more frequently, so if you want to follow us there, you can find us @LL_farm


  1. I'm glad to see Farm Photo Friday is back. You have been busy! Your garden looks great---Good Times, Good Eats!!

    1. Thanks Vikki! We have definitely been busy!

  2. Your gardens are looking so pretty. I love your idea to use cattle panels to grow your peas on was a good one! It would be great for cukes too! You have a very pretty homestead!

    1. Thanks Vickie! We use cattle panels to grow tomatoes and cucumbers on, and it works great...keeps the precious harvest off the ground, and makes picking a lot easier.

  3. I wouldn't know how to follow Instagram if my life depended on it. I don't even facebook. Ah well, I guess all I can do is hope that you post here once in a while. I love reading your posts.

    Your garden is brilliant! I am so envious of your neat beds and weed-free pathways! Maybe I can pick your brain about it when I start my new garden up.

    Have a lovely weekend!

    1. Thanks Daisy! Trust me, instagram is easy to navigate (and post). You should look into joining! So excited for you to be one step closer to your homestead dream.

  4. Lovely garden, Oh how I need an garden like that. I love how you turned your watering can turn into a flower pot, what a lovely idea.

    1. Thank you Teresa. The garden is still a work in progress to make pretty, but WOW! having the raised beds is a much easier to take care of.

  5. Wow, everything looks absolutely amazing at your home!! If you have time to come help me in the garden that would be fabulous :) My garden definitely needs more than just me.....perhaps a team of gardeners could get it back on track! I'm so impressed with all that you do!

    1. Thank you Debbie! I can relate...before the raised beds, my garden got out of control...once the weeds got out of hand, it was daunting. My hope is once the grunt work is completed this year, prepping the garden (and maintaining) will be a lot easier year after year.


I love to read your comments! Thank you for taking the time to leave one.
