Bountiful Blessings

I’ve always dreamed of owning a farm. Acreage, chickens, goats, a bountiful vegetable garden, a beautiful flower garden. But alas, I only have 1/4 acre, and it’s mostly shade.

I’ve had echinacea and mint growing for years but I’ve been too busy to try to harvest them. I never knew what to do either. But this year I decided to do it. I cut a few echinacea and a bunch of mint. And now I have them hanging up in my house to dry. I’m really excited for the end result! Can we say mint tea? Yes please! 😄.

We have a small chicken farm here. 20 chickens. They’re fun. The kids love them. I love the fresh eggs we get every day! If you’ve never had farm fresh eggs, you’re really missing out. They’re so much better than store bought eggs!

And the berries!! I’m so excited about these berries! We’ve always had black raspberries but this is the first year for red raspberries. A bird much have dropped a seed because they just randomly sprouted up in the back yard! There was an invasive vibe growing back there, along with other weeds. I’ve worked hard to remove all the weeds to really give this berry bush a chance to thrive, and it has! There’s easily 100+ berries growing and I couldn’t be more delighted! It’s a small reminder to me that God will provide and give you all the desires of your heart. 💜

Do you have a farm or garden? I’d love to hear about it!
