Tuesday was a super busy day for me, and I spent most of it outside in the garden. Ds came over and he trimmed half the border of the property with the whipper snipper, which was such a help to us.
One of the first jobs of the day was to dig up all the potatoes as the tops were dying. I was pleased with what I got, and am hoping to blanch the bowl of small potatoes and freeze them so we can eat them on Christmas Day. However when I was looking through a recipe book regarding this, they don't recommend freezing uncooked potatoes? My Aunt in England does this though with great success? Any tips from you?
I also did some weeding while I was in the veggie plot and had another trailer load of weeds. I cleaned out the butternut squash bed, and am pleased to say I have plenty of flowers on the plants, but no butternut squash as yet. Still I am hopeful. Remember I hadn't planned on doing a veggie garden at all this year!!
I also laid down some black weed barrier between the veggie gardens to kill the weeds in the hopes by October I can dig some more land for vegetables for next year.
I also cleaned out my tree nursery, only to discover I only have two trees left and they don't seem to be growing that well? Still they were free, so I'm not out of pocket.
Here is a photo of my grapes, there seem to be quite a few bunches, not sure what I am going to do with them though?
Remember last week when I took some photos of the combining in the field opposite us, it was in this post. Well Jim is now baling hay, and we were watching this while we were eating our supper. Here are a couple of photos:
A sheik "explains" the differences between men and women's brains (I am rolling my eyes, just writing this, as I have watched this) I first saw this over at Crafty Mamas.
I am actually lost for words for a change, with this. Don't you just want to smack him over the head or tell his mother to do it!!
