Happenings on the farm ~ Vol.I

So much of our time is spent at the farm these days.  I thought it would be fun to post on some of our ~Happenings on the farm ~

We have baby barn swallows!
We think there are 4 chicks there.  It is so exiciting watching mama and daddy bird feed them!

60 mph winds knocked down 3 of the Bradford Pears lining the drive :(

It was a team effort clearing the drive.
We figured these trees had been planted about 15 years ago.  Looks like a great research topic!

Fun find ~ Blackberries!
Here's Snuggle Bug picking blackberries with my mom aka NaeNae.
Snuggle Bug's becoming quite the cook.  She made the most delicious blackberry cobbler!
Here's the recipe - quick and easy!
Pour a stick of melted butter into the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish.
Combine 2 cups sugar, 2 cups self rising flour, and 2 cups of milk in large bowl.  Pour over butter and sprinkle with 3 cups of blackberries.
Bake at 350 for 1 hour.
Serve with a scoop of ice cream.

Buck and Honeybee having fun cooling off in the pool.
I still can't believe we will be living here in a couple of months!
Tomorrow morning we are meeting surveyors for an Elevation Certificate.   There are so many things that go into preparing land for a new home....
I know it will be worth it all in the end!

I'm so sad about your pear trees! But that farm looks like a piece of heaven- how wonderful will it be to have room to roam and enjoy God's creation!
