Wow... I've been so overly busy around here, and been away quite a bit already this summer. The time I've had I've used to either play on facebook (which you can view this blog through my facebook page now), or I've been outside in the garden with my daughter and our chickens.
Now, we've had a mole issue I've been fighting and LOSING lately. Thank goodness for snakes and cats. There just happen to be more moles then snakes or cats though. Yesterday I found a snake in a mole tunnel hanging out by my watermelon patch... I think it either ate the mole, or was planning on it when the mole returned. So I just got as far from where the snake was as possible. I have seen my neighbors cats running through the yard with a mole in their mouths as well, so there is something positive to all the outside furballs running around.
We're expecting storms again today (lots of those lately too) but if it holds off I'm going to take some pictures of the wreck that is my garden. It looks bad, and jungly... but things are growing and we're eating good lately!
Potatoes are long done... we even ate them all already. Corn is done too! I'm going to do a second round of both here soon. Cucumbers ended up dying of Downy Mildew... I'm trying to control it on my canteloupes now. I still have the blight under control on my tomatoes... you'll see the 100's and 100's of green tomatoes I have going when I get a photo.
Don't worry... I need to log all this stuff ASAP so I can look back at my good and bad planting decisions next year... so I will be back!
