The sun is drying things out so we can get to work — 5 Comments

  1. Please keep reminding us that you can’t do it all in one season. Even though we don’t homestead, we need to remember that we do what we can. Thanks for your wisdom and sharing your thoughts with us. You all make quite a team! Blessings.

    • You CAN’T do it all in one season! We still have lots of unfinished projects but like you said, we do what we can. I’ve learned my best may not be as good as someone else’s best but what the heck, it is MY best and I’m content with that. Most days.

  2. I have a good one for you.
    Am having to replant our sweet corn today even though its well into the growing season. Have had a stretch of hot dry weather and even though we kept the corn well watered I would come out and find plants missing. So many were missing that by the time I figured out what was going on two thirds of the stand were gone.
    Pheasants !! Darn things would sneak into the garden in the early morning and very late evening and snip off the plant and eat it. I guess they were thirsty and due to the dryness they turned on the corn as a water source. To hopefully slow this down I put out several troughs filled with water at each end of the patch but in the meantime hope its not to late for the replant !!!

    • Wow, pheasants! My turkeys got part of my Lavender Parching corn by digging it up and eating it. Now it’s fenced and replanted. Eeek! They’re all out to get us.

      • The water troughs at each end seemed to have worked. The pheasants are now leaving the corn alone but now have wandered over to the cabbage.
        I think this is a plot !!!
