Finally got some work done in the garden, weeding and cleaning up five of the beds readying for fall plantings. I also did the last picking on the green beans and pulled all of them out. They were pretty much done. Also pulled out all of the squash (disappointing year) and zucchini. Squash bugs were starting to get numerous in their egg plantings so I pulled them and put them in a bag to the trash. I don't want to be fighting those things for the rest of the year when we are being bombarded by June bugs. They are everywhere. Doing my best to contain them but only so much you can do. Here's the sheet for the week.
Pretty good week considering everything is slowly wilting away. Man what a summer.
Eggs, eggs everywhere!
My pickings from Saturday. And some follow- up more presentable pictures.
My wife went out Sunday and did a picking on the cherry and grape tomatoes. I hate picking them.
Went out Sunday morning and actually bought squash so I could make some squash relish. We eat it on hotdogs, chicken sandwiches, etc. And the guys my wife works with love it. Going to have to make more.
Found this big guy hiding.
Finally to end our weekend me, my wife and our boys went to see Garrison Keillor, Prairie Home Companion, America the Beautiful tour show. Big NPR geeks the boys and I are. Great show and supposedly his farewell tour.
Welp, that's it for me tonight. Got stuff to do. From my family to yours, get your geek on!
