Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop #164 and Happy 4th!

Happy 4th of July from Big Sky Acres!  We hope your day has been exactly as you hoped.  Whether you are with family and friends grilling out, inside listening to rain, working today or playing outside in the dirt like us, we just hope you are enjoying what our freedom here allows you to have and be!

We have been gone for a LONG period of time. Our garden is showing us that neglect by us doesn’t mean doom and gloom.  We are eating lettuce from our bed that is so overrun by grass that you could not even see the lettuce! BUT it was lurking in there and growing.  All that grass kept it cool and moist and and under all that “mess” the lettuce was growing and thriving.  Who knew?? What a fun 4th of July surprise! (and encouragement).

Embarrassing picture of Garden 1, but planting and then leaving it for 3 weeks has its repercussions. I know you farmgirls are a forgiving, non judgmental bunch, so thanks for the latitude here and then “no judgement”. 🙂

BUT look at my lettuce that was in there–


I am learning that gardening is not “all about me” and nature has much more to do with it than we give it credit for!

Our 4th has been fun so far and I hope yours has been also.  I am READY to blog hop and see what you are up to this weekend! Be sure to visit Deb of Dandelion House (our blog hop founder and hostess primo) and check out what daisies on her doorstep have taught here over the years.

Please include the Farmgirl Friday button ( or link back here ) in your post and remember to share this hop with all of your blogging friends!

You don’t have to live on a farm to join this hop!
