Farmgirl Friday blog Hop # 19

Hello dear blogging friends! We've been away near the sea for some R and R and I just didn't have time to get my Farmgirl Friday hop ready to go before I packed my beach bag! Summer is in full swing  at  the " Cottage ". We've logged in plenty of beach time, good reading, visiting with family and friends and I've even harvested summer squash and plenty of cuke's from the raised beds we planted this spring! I wish I could say the same for my little veggie garden here at home. Oh, it's growing, but it's in slooooow motion!  I'm afraid that the location is the problem. Too much shade. So, I've been re-thinking the garden location for next year. I'm imagining more edible's in our front yard! I've been reading the Edible Front Yard by Ivette Soler for inspiration. It's filled with great tips on how to grow more edibles in your front yard with good design and style! Her blog The Germinatrix is great too!

We're still going to hop this week! Better late than never right? Besides, I don't want to miss seeing what all you farmgirls have been up to inside and out!

Here are the rules for the Farmgirl Friday blog hop:

1.) Write a post about your farmgirl lifestyle and brag a little about your farmgirl talents while your at it! Share what being a farmgirl means to you. Include lots of photos of your farm, crafts, animals, quilts, home decor projects and thrifty make overs, your backyard garden, hen house, recipes, studio or workshop. You get the idea!
2). Leave a permalink in the Mr. Linky space to your Farmgirl Friday post.
3). Please include the Farmgirl Friday button ( or link back here ) in your post.

 Thanks so much for all you share and for your sweet concern! All is well here... FYI.. There will be no Farmgirl Friday blog hop Friday, August12 Th but please join me ( and all other farmgirls ) for # 20 on August 19 Th. I'll be having a give away and you won't want to miss it!

I'd love to hear about your"edible" front yard gardening experiences too! Slip me a note under the garden gate on your way out!
