Can you believe that August is almost over? This year is flying by and I know that the cold weather will be here before we know it, or want it. I can already catch the barest wisps of a crisp Fall evening on the breeze at night. With the first Fall frost scheduled for November 15th (50/50 chance) for my region, that still gives me a little bit more growing time. Mom and I planted some seeds this past Thursday.
We planted kale, kohlrabi, summer squash, winter squash, cucumber, zucchini, beets, radishes, carrots, and garden beans. I feel like there is something missing, but I don’t feel like getting my garden journal.
I believe that our two apple trees are now past the point of redemption after years of suffering from Fire Blight so we are going to cut them down too. I hate it, but at this point, it’s really all that we can do. Going forward, we will be treating our new apple trees (looking for recommendations on types resistant to Fire Blight), as well as our pear tree on a yearly basis.
I’m going to make a conscious effort to blog more now that the growing season is starting to slow. Along with that, I’m working on my first serious attempt at a novel as well as trying to get my Etsy shop launched. More on that later.
