Picked another 3 gallon bucket of tomatoes early this evening.
My peas are coming up, and the beans are blooming. A couple weeks ago I planted a fall crop of peas, lima beans and horticulture beans. So far, they all look real good.
My cucumbers didn't fair too well. They gave me 4, then quit. I think they just didn't like the heat. Meanwhile, I found watermelon that I didn't plant--and it looks like it will give us a couple. I think my volunteer pumpkin plant is done--in fact, the vine is gone, not a bit of the vine left, just its pumpkins left behind.
Tomorrow, I plan to get back on the apples again....after I finish the last of the weed eating. I got the lawn all mowed today, and most of it weeded, but a little is still left (Mowing alone takes over 8 hours-so I ran out of daylight.)
We also have a homeschooling field trip planned for tomorrow, to Weston MO to the Red Barn Farm, where we will meet up with other homeschooling families. I'll probably get some apples there as well, depending on the variety and their prices.
With any (good) luck...tomorrow will be a little smoother than today....My poison ivy has spread to my eye lids, I accidentally got bug spray in my eyes (yeah-watch which way its pointed before you spray...duh), and almost tipped the big John Deere tractor over (big tractor--not my little tractor mower). While that isn't the first time I have had it on only 2 wheels, it was the scariest....and, silly mistake on my part--I moved the joystick the wrong way on the front loader and pushed the front wheels up...(however, that is a good way to get it out when stuck in the mud or snow, but I wasn't stuck...)
