    Those are amazing, Flygap!!! On our old place, iris came up all over in multiple colors, too...for the same reason (the prior "lady of the house" liked them). I would dig and move dirt to random places, not knowing it had bulbs in it, and they would even "pop up" in those random spots.
    The neighbors told me she would "trade them" w her Iris growing friends and family, which explained why there were so many different colors. It seems to be something Iris growers practice. They do have rather lovely flowers.

    Oh, and the little girl is an absolute doll!

    Thanks! She's a weed.

    Too right on the canning and growing, just wait Sky, it's coming! So much work but so worth it. Holler at Lockwood when you get started! LOL!

    I cringe when I have to buy corn. Mine's like yours, all organic. I know what they put on it and ewwww. I can TASTE the chemicals.
    A month ago a girl from high school came up to me at a concert. She was all waiving and jumping up and down, I thought she was just having a REALLY good time. When she got to me she wanted to talk about RAISING CHICKENS and GARDENS! She had heard from a friend about all we did and couldn't believe that me, a uber sparkly hippy chick (back then) was so... domestic! My Mom and Grandma worked 24/7, we had a teeny tiny garden for fresh stuff but I had NO IDEA when I got started! Still learning, but as long as the freezer doesn't go out or I don't poison my family we'll always have SOMETHING to eat!

    The deer have eaten almost everything in the garden this year.

    They have left the onions and garlic alone.

    Oh my, Thank the Lord, It is Raining.

    For once in a long time, I am one of the Lucky ones.

    I am going outside to do a happy/rain dance!

    Oh, rain! Can you please send the clouds my way when you have had your fill?
    Pretty please??

    All those thunderstorms that ripped through my area and I didn't get nary a drop. No rain in over a month for me and I'm getting real pooped from hauling 200 gallons of water almost daily from the spring and creek four miles away.

    This was the first rain in 6 weeks.
    I know what you mean, to water my baby orchard I fill a 400 gallon tank on the back of the pick-up and drive to the trees and pump it off every other day. Watering takes about 2 1/2 -3 1/2 hours a day.

    I have not had my fill yet but I am sending the clouds east.

    Yay! Come on clouds!

    OMG, your mention of the orchard just made me realize I have not been watering mine!

    I've been so busy hauling water for the animals and the kitchen garden I kinda forgot about the orchard. In my defense... it is down the hill and quick glances do tell me all the trees are still upright. Naked from a late frost that killed the fruit buds, but upright none the less.

    When I bought this property 6 years ago there was nothing. Not a flower, not a bush, not a garden. Nada.
    I started making my gardens, flower beds, and orchard the very same year and have been working at it ever since.

    Each year I start planting the food gardens in March or April, depending on the weather, and I continue right through Thanksgving. SOmetimes I can even take really hardy veggies into December.

    No rain here. We really need some. I believe that this heat wave will be the ruination of our squash. No matter how much I water it, the 105 degree days wilt it bad.
