It's amazing how close you can get to these birds. This picture is not touched up in any way.

This is not the same picture. But it is a little bit further away. I'm getting about 5 to 6 of these little cuties at one time. One summer I counted 16! That was at one time. It sounded like a swarm of bees.

Remember this nest. Well look a little closer, you will see 6, yes that's right,6 little mouths to feed. Mommy is sure busy. Speaking of busy, guess what we've been doing around here.

That's right, making hay. (well you know what I mean.) We raked and rolled 109 rolls of hay.(when I say we, I mean Hubby. But, I did make sure he had plenty of ice tea to drink.)Each roll weighs about 1000 pounds. We have big bales. That's Glamore Girl riding up there on the tractor with Hubby. I finally got her away from the computer. But, I bet she still has her cell phone.

The garden is starting to get its act together. And yes, I picked the zucchini. And yes, It tasted wonderful.We are getting a lot of zucchini and squash right now, but the tomatoes and beans are just about to take off. I found a bean that was an inch long. I won't have to wait much longer. Soon all I'll want is a break from canning and freezing. Can't have it all. Wouldn't it be nice if you would wake up one day and all of your planting and weeding and canning and freezing were done. Oh wait they do have that, it's called Krogers.

So until next time....

Small Farm Girl,the ice tea queen.

Well, Kroger would be easier, but not nearly as rewarding. If I had it in my power, I'd come do all that canning and freezign for you. I'd love to be able to do that....maybe one day soon I can.

My husband and I miss our hummingbirds so bad. We are no longer able to put our feeder out since our neighbor has decided to farm honey bees. Last year they took over our hummingbird feeder. So sad.

I love my hummers! Cliff is raking hay at this very moment.

I love hummingbirds. So far, I've counted 5 at my feeder at one time.
Kroger's doesn't taste near as good, though!
