Playing Catch-Up

This weekend has been about a lot of little things. I haven’t been in the garden much the past few weeks as there isn’t really much to do right now. What things that are still planted are pretty much taking care of themselves. I’m still waiting on my shipment of garlic to arrive, as well as my apricot and hazelnut trees.

Yesterday I went to my uncle’s charity golf tournament and entertained myself with free food while the raffle was going on (didn’t win anything). Afterward, my grandparents kidnapped my mom and I and took out way out in to the middle of nowhere to dig through the depilated barn of an old family friend. We pulled out a few old plows. They need fixing up but will look pretty good out in our flower beds.

Today consisted of messing around the house. It’s more fun to show you what I did in pictures, so here we go!

Painted this little shelf that mom threw together so that I could have somewhere to display my canned items in the kitchen.

My sugar cane is taller than I am right now. It'll be time to harvest it soon (before the frost comes).

Mom and I spent a lot of time weeding the strawberry bed and catching it back up to where it needs to be.

I found some black walnuts when I was at the bookstore yesterday. I picked about a dozen up and spent today cracking open the green hulls. The nuts are on the drying rack but I have the green hulls in water to try to make some ink.

This is the first acorn on the oak tree that mom planted 10 years ago from just a sapling from the woods.
