I know we have kind of "disappeared" off the face of the earth, (and even have not posted the last "Seven Sister’s Treasures" )! But we have been VERY busy! In one week (and a day ) Cassia and I are going to an orchestra day camp that will be from Monday to Friday, and we are staying with friends there. And, the Monday and Tuesday after that is 4-H general project judging. Then, the week after that is the 4-H fair! We almost live there that whole week because we are bringing/showing four different animals! (And multiples of each 😉 When the crazy-ness is over, we will post about everything we did…that is, probably after camping. CAMPING? Right after the fair!? It is a family reunion, so we like to camp then. I didn’t say we like coming home and leaving in a few minutes to be gone all weekend, but we do like camping! (Okay, I think that is quite enough smiles!)
So, to say all that….the main point I am getting to is that you will most likely see little or no posts for a few weeks! Unless on of us who will probably be staying up all night to finish projects gets into a silly mood and feels like posting about how crazy we are in the middle of the night! 😀
Okay, now to the original post! 🙂
On Friday I did some work outside. I enjoy working outside (when I have time!), so this was fun!
We received our strawberry plants in the mail that evening, so after supper (and feeding animals, and washing dishes….), I planted them right before dark. It usually gets dark around 9:30-10:00-ish, so I had time 🙂
Here is one of the twenty-five strawberry plants I planted. I know, it is not wise to plant when it is almost dark….the mosquitoes are out to bite!! I learned the hard way 🙂
Then, Cassia ran the tiller in-between the rows of corn and beans, and I weeded them.
This is…um….some of the rest of the garden. I intended on weeding it that night, but it did not (obviously)get done! We are doing the square-foot gardening, so hopefully it will be easier to control the weeds! (*Clear throat*!)
I originally started this post last month when we plowed and planted. But, I did not finish it. So, here are the pictures of the beginning
This is out in the field. We are renting an acre North of us to plant more pasture for the goats and plant some of our garden out there. Right now the strawberries, corn, watermelon and pumpkin are out there.
