LIVING THE SIMPLE LIFE

Go back to simple food, simple clothes, simple pleasures.
Pray hard, work hard, sleep hard and play hard.
Do it all courageously and cheerfully. – Herbert Hoover

So when one has too much to say, don’t say nothing at all (nod to Thumper). Sometimes pictures speak more than words…  enjoy.

Cassidy enjoys the shade of the towering tomatoes and cool moist soil from the clay pot irrigation

Homegrown beauties

Bees enjoy the purple echinacea too

Bees working the sweetly scented African Blue Basil

Bess and butterflies galore!  Urban wildlife at it’s best and much enjoyed here on the urban homestead.

    LOVE the opening quote (by Hoover).

    Do you ever end up having so much of a surplus of some things that you don’t know what to do with it all, or can’t process it fast enough? Do you can, freeze, preserve, etc? I know you sell quite a bit as well, but it looks like you have a great deal of some of the greenery 🙂

    Anais,
    Just wondering what type of food do the cats eat? Are they vermin (rats/mice) hunters or do they eat dry or canned food? As usual, your pictures are beautiful and Cassidy looks very peaceful.

    Everything looks so fresh and beautiful in your garden. I am impressed because I know how much it takes to keep a garden fine. And you are doing this year around! Here in Sweden we have the winter to rest.
