come, set a spell

Mike's parents "set a spell" with us, of course, as always Franklin was in the mix.

I marinated some Flat Iron steaks. Just little nubs of corn coming out of the garden now.

The Flat Iron is one of the most versatile pieces of beef. It takes to a marinade like no other, it's tender beyond belief, and you can cook it with much success in many methods. Plus, it's cheap.

Think I'll check on the pumpkins in the garden which is behind the orange gate.

coming along

the weeds are really taking over quickly, we've had a lot of rain lately

You have a pretty cute "weed eater" system!

Louise said...

Oh, those weeds are tall! Good thing you have the maintenance crew to take care of things!

Please send rain this way. Good Morning

Flat Iron seaks huh? Hmmm, going to have to try some. Is it anything like Flank Steak? The corn looks yummy.
I'm sure the goats don't mind the weeds growing.
And Franklin really was center of attention in that pic!

What a wonderful life! That Franklin is such a ham. How about a photo of dear Sweatpea & Peach?
