|Apple trees planted last year doing very well.|
|"Missy 2" hops on my lap as soon as I sit down.|
|She needs a name, and English Langshan who give me the chicken eye constantly.|
|The only Silkie hen...what a cutie. She is unnamed also. A Japanese breed.|
This year I am gardening year round. I have hoops arriving and greenhouse cloth to cover the closest two beds near the house. One cannot grow fruiting items in this. But we'll have root veggies, and greens all winter long. I will continue to teach the generations younger how to do this. I am grateful for my neighbors who have helped water and shade my garden while I recover from my broken foot. I am passionate about growing. I imagine I will be until the day I am planted too. :-)
|Breakfast "mash" of: milk, cornmeal, stale bread, pea pods, and crackers.|
|Strawberries are starting to overcrowd. Still bearing fruit in this heat. Yum!|
Thanks for reading.
