Will, Krystal, and I finished hanging the last two sections of the 6-foot-high fencing on the new pumpkin/corn patch. We had decided to wait for a more doable cash flow but the deer were starting to eat, not nibble, on plants in there, including many of our pumpkin vine leaves. If we were going to get a decent crop, we had to do something. So we bit the bullet and bought the rest of the fence. It’s all up now and that was a job well done! The plants can grow without harm.
Our garden is doing great! We’ve been eating snow peas, broccoli, and asparagus right along and the first of Will’s Hungarian Wax (Hot Banana) peppers are ready to use. I’ll be putting up a whole lot of his favorite hot pepper rings soon. And the rest of the peppers are following to suit. Boy, there are a lot of baby peppers in that big hoop house!
It was supposed to be rain-free until Friday, so Will cut two hayfields. Last night we got a little rain and today it’s sprinkling on and off. Yikes! I hope it doesn’t pour! And I hope we get some sunshine to get that hay dry!
We were excited Friday as we got a big box of my latest Jess Hazzard Western, Autumn of the Loons. I’ve been having people who want autographed copies, so now they’re here! (By the way, you lovely folks who have read either book, Summer of the Eagles or Autumn of the Loons, would you please take time to do a review on Amazon? It would be much appreciated by me. Thanks! — Jackie
