I thought that I’d do something a little different today, truthfully I get tired of living, breathing, and talking QuickBooks and payroll – because I do it EVERY DAY! I work with computers all the time and usually don’t have too much of an issue until the weather get’s nice — then I become a weekend yard warrior.
I love to garden – flowers, vegetables, fruit – I love to be outside and during the summer I spend far less time in front of my computer and far more time in my yard – that means fewer blog posts, fewer interactions on the social media networks that I’m involved in. Winters in Vermont can be long and cold and unfortunately I can’t garden in the snow!
So today I thought I’d share another part of my life with you. Our house sits on 33 1/2 acres of land, Ben and I mow roughly 3 acres every week (the rest is wooded) – this is part of our front yard and our gardens:
Now to the gardens — I have 4 big perennial flower gardens, this is the biggest one – it’s 85 feet long and 6 feet wide and runs the entire length of the front of the house!
This one wraps around 2 sides of our deck
This is the vegetable garden with strawberries on one side and a row of blueberry bushes on the other – there are a bunch of apple trees and 3 big raspberry beds as well.
I think it’s going to be a really good year for blueberries! This is just one small branch from one of our smaller bushes
So now you have an idea of where I disappear to when the weather starts getting nice and why I abandon my computer to become a weekend yard warrior!
Hope you all have had a wonderful week and have a great weekend!
