Is that some kind of squash in that first picture? Do you groom your chickens?

Buzz Kill said...

Those look like camel tomatoes. My mom use to grow them all the time because they were cool looking.

Dani said...

Granny, they're little yellow pear tomatoes. Elizabeth just loves them!

Buzz, they're a very old heirloom. I think Thomas Jefferson was growing them in his gardens at Monticello.

Dani said...

Buzz, if you want I can save some seeds for you.

I loves the chickens! If we ever get to retire and go back to The Engineer's farm country roots I'm getting some chickens!

VERA in da house.

I think I'm keeping your post up all day so I can ignore what's going on outside.

Dani said...

I think that's a great idea girlfriend!

Susan said...

Yummy looking salad fixins. It's not always easy to have ripe tomatoes when the lettuce is ready for pickin. Enjoy!

Erin said...

Such a beautiful collection of everything in your world.

Dani said...

Froggy, I do too. They're so much fun to be around.

Susan, I've been lucky with the tomatoes so far this season. I was sure the cold snaps were gonna do them in.

Erin, it's messed up, isn't it? ;)

Linda, I'm so sorry sweetie. I can't imagine doing the stuff y'all do when it's that brutal outside.

Lori, that's our Vera girl. She's the sweetest little thing!

Boxer, we'll be dreaming of days like this when summer comes and we're hunkered down to escape the heat.

Dani said...

Chickory, thank you girlfriend. :) Now if only I had a turkey to complete my little farm here.

MakingSpace said...

So lovely, all of it! My daughter just reminded me we need to hit the farmer's market to buy her fave little tomatoes (what is it with little girls and little tomatoes?) so she can dip them in ranch dressing. LOL

What a gift to the folks in the blizzard to see these lovely images.

Especially the chicken. Haha

SECRET PEPPER PERSON: said...

I am soooooo envious. How do you grow nasturtiums here? I can't! Tell me where you got the seeds quick so I can order! PLEASE! And then I get to the chicken photo...hello! I laughed so hard. That is the best chicken photo by far.

Dani said...

SPP, any of the box stores will have the seeds.
I find mine do best if I plant the them around Oct-Nov.

I just love my Vera. She's such a goofy lookin' hen.

Melissa said...

VERA!

the nasturtiums. They are my favorite. I use the flowers as a garnish and both the flowers and leaves in salad. peppery and bright!

LaDivaCucina said...

Oh man, makes me want to make a salad from that and eat it right in your garden! x=
