It’s been a busy week here on the urban homestead – working bees, planting summer veggies, preserving and more. What more could a busy bee ask for but purposeful work that fills our days.
The camera these days is my constant companion since there’s so much goings on everywhere I turn.
So without further ado, another collection of photos taken yesterday.

Our tabby cat checks in on the goings on. Hey, kitty, lend a hand, will you!
