June 28th where has the summer gone

    Farm News:   Its already June 28th, the summer is moving along so quickly. it seems like we just had piles of snow. ( Oh that's right we did about a month ago.) now its 98 degrees.
the  lavender fields are in and the drip lines are finally working. a few more trays of plants coming this week, then i just have to wait and see how it goes... mostly praying really hard.
Our other garden is really coming along. the dill and cilantro from last year decided to come up and trying to take over... they each have about a 5' x 20' that they decided is their new home. so if you need fresh dill, we have it $1.50 a bundle.
    Shop news: I have a new paper flower kit. it makes a large 12" flower. I sell the finished flower for $10 and the kit is $8.00, but with the kit you have the pattern and template to make as many as you would like.
large bundle of fresh dill $1.50

12" paper flower $10

book paper flower kit $8

Shop news:
Look  at these amazing 12 'x2' doors.. I have 4 of them painted whte and one still left to paint. The pitch is 12'high on my building that they are up against.  Cant decide if they should become long tables.
Here is also a Cool gray folding table with metal legs.

Farm news: still waiting for my lavender plants, hopefully ths next week.
We finally are officially country farmers, our 3301 tractor with brush hog mower,  front loader and bucket is coming Wednesday. 

Im not getting any younger. (Too bad) so  if I am gonna keep up with crops and 40 acres I need some help, I think the tractor just might  be the answer..
