Happy Independence Day!

I can’t believe that the month of June completely passed by, and I have not posted!

We have been very busy in the garden, and putting up our bounty!

Early onions put up in the cellar.  I have never hung and dried onions before, so the jury is still out on how this preservation method will work for us.

Put up sweet relish, corn salsa, dill pickles, pickled beets, and regular salsa.  The shelves in the cellar are filling up.

We have had great success with the potato bed this year. So far I have only dug out a third of the trough, and we are pleased as punch that potatoes are not a fail in the water trough garden bed.

That’s about all we have for now, but some great projects are coming up, and I will be posting on them soon.

Get outside and and get some porch sittin done!

 Memorial Day

May 30, 2022

Pictures do tell the whole story.  From 2018, to 2022 there has been a lot of improvement!

That was a little bit of a shocker, because it doesn’t seem as though we worked that hard, but I guess we did!

Another round of bush hogging.  The grass should be good enough next year for hay, and we are going to over seed some more Timothy this fall, and possibly some orchard grass.
