I am not sure what has happened to blogging over the summer. The blog has died! Can it be revived?? I guess we have been busy, that is the only thing I can think of… Lots has changed around here that is for sure. I am so happy with how everything is looking and I will post about that soon.
The vegetable garden was a bit of a tough go. Right now it’s November 4th and 21 degrees out It’s the never ending summer and I am in a bit of a panic thinking of everything I could get a head start on for next year to make spring easy… it would be easier if it would just snow already! hah. Of course I don’t REALLY want that to happen. I am taking out gardens and putting new ones in. And of course mulching like crazy.
This summer I grew the worlds smallest tomato.
I grew one zucchini out of 5 plants which is unheard of!! I tried to phone in for more, but there was no answer.
I harvested the rest of the garden yesterday.
I did however manage to trap the groundhog that ate EVERYTHING in my garden from June- September. It was amazing to see things actually grow once he was gone. (this fella, or lady, likes tomatoes and peas. Thats how I got her).
The kale is still going strong out there though, I even see signs of broccoli returning. The groundhog had a real hay day with that too. We did get lots of peas, leeks, potatoes. Everything else was just a golden buffet for that fat groundhog.
The rest of my summer consisted of bribing my children to spread 40 yards of wood chip. Turns out they will do anything for computer time- another thing I wish I knew at the beginning of the summer. It was a productive summer none the less. I am going to enjoy the last few days of heat while I can. :)
They are harvesting the corn in the field across from our house right now! That officially ends the summer and fall in my books. ….Be back soon!
P.S. the kitties are still cute!
