Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. My posts revolve around the beauty of nature, homeschooling adventures, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and life as a daydreamer and nature observer. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!

    1. Home for the horses! The cherry picking farm was located to the side of this barn. I wonder why most barns are red.
      Ruth’s barn sounds interesting! Does she run a garlic business? Or is it for personal consumption? I love garlic and its smell when you stir fry or bake. Raw…too potent for my stomach.

      1. I am really behind her Esther – I apologize, as I did a 6 1/2-mile walk yesterday and a long one today, and took a ton of pictures, but last night I was in bed by 9:15 p.m. It wore me out.

        Okay, that makes sense – I wonder why all barns are red too? There is a petting farm at Heritage Park and the barns are all red. They had a ramshackle barn and it needed paint and was patched up with a white fence around the area – it was a great spot to take photos. They have razed it and are building another structure, also to look like a red barn to store equipment in for the park maintenance crew. Two years ago, Ruth and her husband got the barn and she sells the garlic, not a business per se, but I think she has an outlet at local farmer’s markets or specialty shops, like produce markets, and the rest is for personal consumption. She showed in a post how they bundled up the garlic and put it in the barn to dry. They grow a lot of their own fruits/veggies and preserve them. I have no talent in that regard … no cooking/baking talent either, so I think the homemaking gene passed me up. 🙂

      2. No worries…I am behind on replying too!
        It’s impressive that you walked 6 1/2 miles. Really good exercise! I’ve been riding the stationary bike for my squeaky knees. But I can’t do that many miles. I’m typing now with a medicated patch on my knee. lol.
        Maybe barns are just supposed to be red. Could it be that’s how you tell a barn is a barn by its red color?
        Ruth’s garlic supply sounds like my parent’s farm. They don’t have a barn for it, but they also grow it. They bundle it up like a bouquet…except it’s very stinky.
        I admire people who can grow their own food and sew clothes. Some have a natural propensity for it and it could be learned too!

      3. Don’t wear your knees out Esther – I’ve know three people who had knee replacements and two lament over the progress to get back to normal. One had both knees replaced at the same time – not a good idea I wouldn’t think. I have an exercise bike too and use it sometimes in the Winter when I can’t walk to keep exercising for my legs to keep them strong. I wish I could put it upstairs but no room for it upstairs right now. Ruth does bundle it up and had a blog post about the garlic harvesting/drying, etc. process. She also sews her own clothes and bakes bread, puts up preserves. Wow – I’m not talented as a baker or cook and one time made my own clothes as I was tall and could never find clothes to fit, but I’d starve if I had to grow my own food and “put it up”. 🙂
