Backyard & Garden Video Tour

Happy belated Mother's Day to all my women readers!  Birthing babies is not a requirement for nurturing and mothering others.  I hope your day was the perfect balance between normalcy and least that's what I enjoyed:-).

This week, instead of photos and captions, I made a video.  For those of you with dial-up or slow computers, I apologize.  For coming off kind of flaky, I apologize as well (all my assumptions of what Jamey had done in the garden were actually correct!).  For the brief gusts of wind that make it hard to hear that I'm showing you our pear and sour cherry tree, I apologize as well.  Without further ado and with a clear conscience, welcome to our backyard....

Just a little update...the baby bunnies did get transferred to the chicken tractor where they made a super-quick escape when no one was looking.  Smart bunnies.

  1. Loved the tour and all the space you have! We are in a subdivision right now and cannot have chickens. Hoping someday we'll find our dreamfarm! Happy gardening...


  2. Oh I'm bummed. I really want to see your tour. But, my computer crashed a few weeks ago & I lost a bunch of info & programs. Since then I haven't been able to re-install the necessary program for watching video clips. :( But, I'm sure you have a lovely backyard & garden!

  3. Excellent video tour! I loved it! May forward this to my Momma who has chicks... she might be interested in your little chicken truck. i think that's what you called it.
    The wind overshadowed your voice in a few spots so I missed some things towards the end but I thoroughly enjoyed the tour! THANKS!

  4. How much land do you guys have? I love it! :) I'm trying to figure out how much we can squeeze into our 1 acre here.


    1. 1 1/2 acres. It's plenty for us. In fact, when it comes to mowing, we wish we had a little less:-).

  5. we can hear your voice! its so nice to actually hear someone,you sound so sweet ,not a aged gruff voice like myself and so glad you said that chair over the bucket was holding something and the chair was to keep cat out,you don't want to know what I thought they were---lol and your yard is so beautiful in such a friendly way,I would feel so at home there!you certainly have a lot to do,thanks for sharing,I feel; as if I am there with you.I can visualize very well

  6. Yay... so nice to hear your voice again. I want your leeks! :)

  7. Hi Jane, your garden tour is realy enjoyable!
    Lovely to hear you talking us through :-)
    It must be wonderful to have all that space for your chickens and vegies.
    You've inspired me to plant some raspberries now-thanks!
    Shame about the bunnies least the cat didn't get to them.
    Have a great day!

  8. Loved your dream is to have a little house and some land where I can garden and have chickens. You've done alot on 1 1/2 acres. Where do you plant the sunflower garden? I've always wanted a wildflower garden so I can have bouquets all summer long! Thank's for sharing your home/garden with the rest of us! Janet

    1. On either side of our house are large, flat yards. The sunflower patch is on one side of our house. The other sits empty and requires mowing. We often think we should plant something out there, too:-).


Just a friendly reminder, if you know me personally please try to refrain from using my name. There are those who may try to locate me, break into my pantry and steal my pickled beets. Thanks:-).
