A Festival, A Feast, & A Blown-out Knee...

Hi everyone! Wanted to let ya'll know that we will have the farm open on Saturday, October 3rd! We may not have lavender in our fields, but we'll sure have pumpkins! Our neighbor, Wild Boar Farms on Luckenbach Road, will be hauling over a truckload of fresh grown hill country pumpkins. Stop by and pick up your Jack-O-Lanterns for the season AND hang out and visit with us for a while; we'll let you know all about growing lavender in the Hill Country, AND - well, what we're still trying to figure out about farming lavender in the hill country ...

Jack will be happy to talk about farming, and I'll be chatting with anyone who will listen about my inspiration of Hummingbird Farms Aromatherapy Body Care.



It will be a busy weekend in Johnson City! Five other area lavender farms will be opening their gates, AND the locals will be preparing for a feast complete with live & silent auctions and entertainment at the 10th Annual Wild Game Dinner held at the Blanco County Fairgrounds in Johnson City.

If you can make it out this way, please go to www.johnsoncitytexaschamber.com or call 830-868-7684 for more information and to check out the other farms that will be open.

So - when it rains, it pours! Literally. We haven't had rain ALL summer and FINALLY after months of waiting for Mother Nature to give us a drink of her cloud juice, she decided to bless us with a bucket or two of the stuff. AND - in addition to that......

Get ready for this one.....

Jack and I went hiking in Big Bend National Park over Labor Day weekend and I blew out my knee. For real. I severed my ACL and tore my meniscus. But - this is a whole 'nother story.... I'll share more details later. In the meantime, I am scheduled for surgery on Thursday, 9/24. So - it looks like I'll be wobbling around out here at our place on the 3rd, and will probably just find a cozy place to sit with my leg propped up...... But anyhow - we sure hope to see you!

La La La Labor Day!!!

We're going to be labor-free for a few days at Hummingbird Farms. This means we're taking some much needed R&R!

This is our dog Lefty. Believe it or not, this picture is a result of a couple of 4-year-olds that were playing with their mama's camera. I thought they did a good job staging this photo! Thanks Catherine & Caroline- I love the picture and love you, too!!!!!!

Have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend and I'll be back in touch next week all happy and energetic.... Who knows, maybe I won't even moan for a few days! Well, doubt that. It's simply not my nature....

Have a wonderful rest of the week and long weekend. Get some rest and take a couple of nice bubble baths or five!
