Back to the old blog

Yep, I'm writing there again.....


Moon and Stars

Probably gonna need to get out the netting for this little heavyweight. It's quickly stretching the knee highs to their limit. Lol

In all, I have 4 melons slung already.

Behind on blogging

Ever since starting this new job, there just hasn't been any time for blogging. With driving included, my workdays are now 14.5 hours long. The garden is being kept up, and I've now given away at least 8 Walmart bags full of squash away. However,  I did pickle some the other day while making bread and butter pickles.....That should be interesting.

The corn is coming in too, and is so good! I'll have to get a picture if it for ya.....

Towering cucumbers

The cucumbers have already grown to the top of their makeshift trellis - reaching around 6 feet tall, I guess. As can be expected, the vines are really producing fruit now, too. I'm making pickles tomorrow.  :)

More harvests

This is what's being harvested from the garden every other day, and I guess we'll just have to break down and make a few pickles this year...

Two ears per stalk

Most of the corn planted in the largest raised bed has at least 2 ears per stalk - which is non-existent on the crop being grown in the self watering containers......It makes a person stop and wonder why? Hmm......

Anyway,  all I can say is that it is welcomed!

Fourth harvest of squash

Yep, this is the fourth one of this size already,  and all four have been given away to friends and family. But, this one has cucumbers included * which is a new addition. Anyway,  just wanted to let everyone know that stuff was getting harvested, and I know that Granny is salivating right now.......

*Please disregard the anatomically correct yellow squash!!!! Haha.....

Plum jelly

Most of you know that I make tons of jelly each year. Well, my preserving has officially started - with these jars of plum jelly. Even after everything I've been through, I've still got it! Yeehaw!!!!

New planter

Well, I quit my job yesterday and was kinda just sitting around waiting on potential employers to give me their best offers (me and brother can do that, Ha!), and decided to build a new planter to help pass the time away.

Three more weeks

And I'll be eating corn. Yeehaw!!!!!!!! Silks are beginning to show everywhere,  and I can't wait to have some fresh from the garden.
