Its been a week since I posted. Life sure gets busy this time of year!
Last weekend we had a lot of rain. Actually everyday this week we have had a shower of one sort or another. There was a good day earlier this week in which we got 22 acres of hay cut and put in plastic. The garden is all up. Bugs have gotten into my celery and I have about half left of what I planted. I purchased some Marigolds yesterday to try and counter act the problem. Today I shall move the celery all into one row to make room for something else in the second row.
The woods looks like a jungle. The laneway needs taming. All the flowering bushes have lost their bloom and need trimming back. It all just seems so over whelming.
Water got in through the roof of the chicken coop. My girls are unhappy at present and my laying is half of what I was getting. I need to get some dry shavings in there.
Today we are canning blueberries. Not from the farm, actually from the states, but at such a deal at the grocery store. I bought about 8 pounds and shall make jam out of it and freeze some for baking throughout the winter. Our local blueberries although nicer, fresher tasting in a months time are always a lot more expensive. I have failed to be able to grow my own!
The strawberry field looks fantastic. We need some warm dry weather now for the berries to come. Two more weeks and I shall be canning daily.
My yo-yo pillow is about half done, but I have not been able to sit still for over a week now. Too much to be done.
Life in this neck of the woods.
