What’s up Wednesday

We’ve had an eventful week but I’m not ready to share the details just yet. It’s a huge step for us as a family and as a homestead, so stay tuned!

I took Kat to see her first fireworks show, I now know to wait till closer to 9 pm to walk up there because we left at like 8:30 and we waited over an hour for the show to start. She played in the grass and picked flowers and once she was straight-up bored I finally caved and gave her my phone to play with while we waited. Once it started she was fascinated with the ‘sky glitter’ that was exploding in the sky.

It’s fuzzy because I’m still learning the ins and outs of my new camera but I love the fact it looks like she has a halo.

Velcro has been uncharacteristically affectionate lately. He’s usually an aloof cat who couldn’t care less as long as he was fed and has a clean litter box. Here lately he has been prone to following me like a shadow and demanding to lay in my lap. He even plays with Kathleen in an odd feline way which involves him exposing his super soft fluffy tummy and she ‘strokes’ and kisses his tummy while he rolls around like a dog getting scratches. Once Velcro is done playing with her, he walks away and goes where she can’t reach him. 

My blog buddy when I’m off work and get a few hours before everyone else wakes up.

The garden is really coming along this week, we have baby cucumbers, baby zucchini, baby tomatoes, and baby beans! And the blueberries are getting bigger, just waiting for them to turn blue. We also got the rest of the garden cloth down around the beds to keep weeds at bay and will have the anti-rabbit fence finished this week.

We now have a Patreon page! Feel free to come by and have a look, there is a lot of exclusive content coming for our patrons. I’m super stoked for all of the content I’ve been compiling for Patreon. I’m still trying to figure out the best day for the live chat and will get that figured when we have some patrons in that particular tier. If you have any suggestions for content for Patreon email me at mallori@franklinfarmstead.com. Also, I’m writing up the post that will reveal our big change on Patreon and it should be on there next week for our two higher tiers.
