We got a lot of stuff planted (finally). We still have some work to do to get caught up...maybe we (I) should just give up the hope of ever being "on schedule". It sure would make things easier!
|tomatoes are planted, trellised, irrigated and mulched|
|winter squash plants are all mulched, too|
We also planted peppers, basil, onions, okra, corn, lettuce, spinach, and seeded LOTS and lots of flats for fall planting.
Check out all the tiny fruits and vegetables!
|tiny broccoli - harvested the first bunch this week|
it's on the menu for supper, too
|tiny concord grapes|
|newly planted pepper plants...have peppers!|
|no GPS needed for this corn planting!|
Just growing enough for ourselves
and hopefully NOT the crows!
|After getting nipped back TWICE by frost|
the potatoes are just about to bloom!
don't they look like they have fingerprints?
The ewes look nice and clean and incredibly white!
However, the same cannot be said for the dogs.
|Aren't they pathetic?|
|Broiler batch #3 is doing well|
|Broiler batch #4 is also growing nicely|
See Squeekie in the background? She constantly patrols
the brooder yard for rats and mice
While it is apparently Sissie's job just to eat the wild catnip!
The upcoming week should include hauling lambs, LOTS of weeding, some planting, more harvesting, cleaning out the hoophouses (again!) and a trip to the dump. We might even work in shearing the ram AND the dog. Don't we have all the fun?
Thanks for stopping by!
|I almost forgot...|
the FIRST bean blossom!
