Barn Reveal

There has been a lot of activity around the barn this past week...
and these two are not impressed.


Just wait, girls, your shed is next!!


I spent a little time painting the greenhouse yesterday,


and Hubbs finished our outhouse.


I am pleased with how everything has turned out.


We dug a ditch beside the side wall that was replaced (due to some rotting),
and filled it with river rock, to keep the moist soil away from the barn siding.


The rest of this area will be landscaped next Spring.

When painting was finished for the day,
I sat in the donkey yard and visited with the girls.


As always, photos of the donkeys can be challenging...
they like to be right on top of me.


Somehow we manage.


I picked the rest of the compost pile tomatoes and roasted them.
I fill freezer bags with a pound each and freeze for use this winter.


Sweet peppers were harvested.
I'll freeze most of them.


More hot peppers were picked...and there are still more to come!
Finally the ghost peppers, and the Carolina Reapers are ripe as well as the Habaneros...
(see small orange Habaneros and large reddish orange ghost pepper in the center of the colander)


This batch of hot pepper relish will be for serious pepper lovers, only!
