Six Little Acres: the Skyline

It’s July 5 here at Six Little Acres and here in Georgia, the summer has already proven to be absolutely sweltering.

Even at 92 degrees it isn’t nearly as unbearable as summers in Savannah were. The combination of heat plus humidity plus gnats was a deterrent for any outside activities between May and November. I stayed inside as much as possible and even scheduled necessary trips in early morning so I would not be out in the “heat of the day”.

This will be our third full summer here at Six Little Acres, and since the fervor of getting settled is over we are enjoying early mornings and late evenings on the porch.

This evening we were drawn out of our recliners by a yellowish sunset through the living room blinds. We went out to the yard and y’all, it was breathtaking!

The pix don’t do it justice of course, but storms were on either side of us which produced the amazing “skyline”. God is an awesome artist, y’all!

Hope you enjoy the pix, and by the way, that last one is our sweet Winston checking in on Ninja Man. Winston doesn’t let him out of his sight!

Thanks for stopping by and God bless.

Tiny eggs

These itty bitty eggs were too cute to not share! They are quail eggs, brought to Six Little Acres by my daughter. Her friend Rosemary of Wholesome Roots Farm shared a dozen of these from her farm.

I just love the colors. Daughter let me photograph her technique of opening the little eggs – because they really are too small to crack. Here you’ll see the quail eggs beside the much larger hen egg. While this is new to me, many of you are way ahead here, and this isn’t news at all. But it’s a first at Six Little Acres, so share I must.

she used them for making breakfast, and I had to leave for Bible study before finding out if it took the whole dozen. I would expect it did.

Here they are again, just pretty as can be.

Please do check out Rosemary’s channel- it’s amazing to see how efficient her farm practices are. Just click HERE and tell her Six Little Acres sent you.

Thanks for stopping by, and God bless!

PS: Update on our little Wren: she’s still doing well on the clinical trial, and enjoying being a very busy four year old. Please continue your prayers.

The Gatherings at Six Little Acres 

My daughter is enthusiastic about all things organic, home grown and healthy. She is the one watching Six Little Acres for all the edibles that are starting to ripen. 

Let’s start with these. Little wild cherries from a tree in the yard. Here’s what she posted about them: “We harvested wild cherries, I cooked them down with cinnamon, allspice and a little cardamom then added honey and we have wild cherry syrup to add to soda water or pancakes or whatever we like!” She is a master in the kitchen – and trust me, I’m great at the drive thru so she got this talent from her grandmothers and aunts. 

Besides wild cherries, she has found fruity blooms on our pear tree, figs, blueberry, muscadine, scuppernong and a raspberry we thought was mower mulch as someone zoomed over them right after planting last summer. 

Fig buds. 

Figs a week later: 

Old fashioned canning pears. 
Wild cherry blueberries Baby Wren with blueberries raspberries with Sir Winston Poops A Lot. And this. 

Y’all there are chickens. Five, plus a rooster. Daughter and the FSIL come with their chikkin wranglers to care for them each day. And you know what? Those chickens are giving back like only chickens can. Aren’t they just beautiful? 

And I almost forgot: pecans! We have three pecan trees that will be bearing nuts this fall! 

Ohhhh the blessings we shall gather at Six Little Acres. We are pretty excited!
