  1. Hey Jackie, how can I get a signed copy of Autumn of the Loons? I have a signed copy of Summer of the Eagles and would like to have both in signed copies.

  2. Deb,

    Heck, Deb, we have our challenges too. This year it was plum curculio, which caused all our plums and apricots to fall off the trees. We’ll be spraying Surround at blossom time next year. And cabbage worms, which I’m treating with Bt. And then we had rain early on, which really set our pumpkin/corn patch back hugely. Yep, we have plenty of weeds out there! And we are still fighting them in our berry patch. They got ahead of us when Will and I fell off the barn roof a couple years back.
    We don’t have a perfect garden, but we’re keeping at it.

    Remember we all have our problems. Just keep putting one foot ahead of the other and you’ll get there. God willin’ an’ the crick don’t rise…..

  3. I KNEW you would have a great post about the garden. What bountiful blessings—courtesy of a lot of hard work. Congratulations!

  4. Jackie, Will and Krystal,
    You have really shown all of us what a real garden looks like. I am drooling and wishing I could have the success that you have. All due to your hard work
    with the soil. I learned late in life that if you don’t have super enriched and healthy dirt then you may as well forgt everything else. I am dealing with late blight with my tomatoes and worms in the squash vines. Do you ever deal with these issues? I remember you telling us at a seminar that you don’t have to spray your fruit trees because the cold kills off the pesky insects. Not so here in Ohio. Sounds like you will have lots of new varieties of seeds for us to try next year. So happy to hear Will has a clean bill of health. Hip hip hooray.
