I managed to make it out to the garden. Slosh-Slosh as I was getting out there but NICE once I got thru the gate.
Good harvest again of green beans and okra, clipped enough spinach for dinner
and probably have 30+ lbs of ...green tomatoes. Some are starting to
turn red. Just hope this front that is coming in midweek doesn't drop to
frost temps. It is supposed to be high 30's and much cooler temps and plenty of sunshine does great things out there.
Oh and MOSQUITOES! It was a blood letting day. I would have stayed
longer but the mosquitoes were horrible.... this quick run was worth it
and I had to get out there to get the beans and okra....but I had to cut
the trip short..!
Plan to clip the spinach down a lot later
this week to get a heavy regrowth and will be sharing with the community
when I do. I have a couple of families in mind....
Sauerkraut it perfect.... it's been warm in the house and it tastes
divine. Not too sour or salty and still a little crunchy... I plan to
can it tonight. Next batch tho I may let it go a little longer....maybe
not tho. This is some good stuff...Wish I had some good deer sausage
links to go with it...
John is outside working on the green
machine. Remember a couple of weeks ago he got it running again but it
died when he was on the trip to the back of the property ...and was in
I expect he'll have it running in no time. It
runs...for a minute or two then dies. He's got this tho. He's a great
mechanic to have on a hobby farm.
Headed back outside but
staying close to the house. Seems like the mosquitoes are not as bad....
I just wish we'd get a breeze...
All for now....we'll check in again later...
