Store where they sell homemade rag rugs, jams and jellys quilts etc

We just found this place.. And its in our back yard so to speak. The browser says (A one of a kind authentic 19th century working farm) the real Florida..  It was so much fun.. when we got there the ladies were in the flower garden.  They had a peach tree that they were harvesting the peaches to can..The flowers were just beautiful

It says..The Dudley landscape is typical of the early Florida Farm with gardens, grape arbors, pecan and fruit trees, pastures, pinewoods, and croplands of peanuts, field peas, Sweet potatoes, and sugar cane.  It is a native habitat for animals such as deer, wild turkey, gopher, tortoises, bats and bluebirds.

In the mid 1800’s Dudley Farm consisted of rolling land covered with longleaf pine and wiregrass.  The longleaf pines provided material for all the Dudley buildings, fence posts, and split rail fences

Ponds, sinkholes, and an extensive network of cave passages permeate the area.  The rich organic soil with a clay and limestone substructure, coupled with the Florida climate, create an area well suited for agricultural use.(the last three paragraphs I copied form the liture they gave us while there.. It has a map and directions of the area…)

What a way to start the day.. Yes things are great today…………..I will do my best………….

We always have banana’s except when we don’t go to the store the day before.  Its another yucky day… 56 when we woke up… Its May…  Today I am going to do laundry and take pictures… putting all my hard cover books in my store…. I am not going back to the flee market this season… Will start again in the fall…. If there is a book you want let me know..by phone or email.. or comment on here…

This week we are having company (Mom says she’s not company she has been here more than three times). Coming up from South Florida.. we use to work together, before that she was my dance teacher. We have been Buddy’s for almost 10yrs… She is the third longest friend I have had… 1st was Berta who I have known sense high school and then there is Susie who I have known sense my oldest daughter and her son were in kindergarten together… We all live in different places now… One in North Carolina, one in Kentucky, one in South Florida and me here in North Florida….

The weather is cold and has my fingers stiff this morning… Maybe that is what is wrong with Twitter.. I write and the words come up a few seconds later instead of right away…   Oh we have lots of tomatoes and squash on our plants well we have tomatoes,  and squash is bloomed so far Gene found a chemical that keeps the worms away… that is so nice…. We saw a hummingbird yesterday.. they have not been coming around as much as they did last year… We have not figured out way… have seen one rabbit a couple of times… but not as much as last year… things are changing… please pray that they get better for people and animals… Gene is feeling better this morning… He found something to take to help him sleep. over the counter… I think it worked… he did not move so much in his sleep…I think he has that restless sleep thing… and his arthritis does not help… Oh I just heard him in the laundry room… means he carried the basket there for me to tackle… 6 loads later…. well bye for now … picture of the day will be………….
