"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived" Henry David Thoreau, Walden (1854)

Not Opening This Mailbox

I was out hoeing the maters when Coal our lab was looking down our road and barking. You know dogs have different barks, I'm hungry barks, need a drink bark, I like that squirrel bark.

But this was a different bark. Little did I know it was a young steer on our road. It was just moseying on down the lane like it was a neighbor coming for a visit. I grabbed the camera hoping the dang beast would not attack me and worst head to the gardens. It seen me, kicked up a few and headed toward our mailbox. What in the world is he listening to . I'm not going to open that mailbox for awhile. Mainly b/c of cow snot :o(

The beauty trotted on home, maybe he'll visit another day----hope not. OH and I carried a bucket of water for this guy too. Go, just go.

Garden news:

We got beans folks, yep they may be little but not for long . We could be eating fresh green beans this weekend.

I got three good size beds growing at different stages. We'll have green beans and new potatoes , yum

The Nasturtium are starting to bloom, the plant is small but it doesn't take away from the beautiful jewel colors . I should of had these planted way earlier . They like the cool weather.

Well I didn't get my garden all hoed , cow took president . Looking for the day when I'll be picking fresh tomatoes.
Have a peaceful evening, no cows on the road
Blessings , linda


  1. Green beans already? That's great. Our spring has been so terrible that I don't have any lettuce yet but I was able to eat a few radishes and three strawberries. How sad that I can count the number of veggies and berries I ate...

  2. Adorable cow picture. Not a sight seen every day. Nasturtium, I have not even planted my seed...oh well. Your bloom sure is lovely.
