Harvest Monday; April 17, 2017

Happy Harvest Monday to everyone. Dave of Our Happy Acres hosts all Harvest Mondays.

No harvests again this week but hopefully soon.I just like to see what everyone else is doing in their gardens this week. It was a busy weekend for the homestead as all kinds of work was accomplished. Powerwashed the front porch and painted, mulched the front, sides, and rear flower beds, turned over the garden beds (most of them), and planted out some tomatoes, cucumbers, green beans, and peppers.

Strawberries. Looks like we'll have a good harvest this year.

Peach trees are blooming out and setting. Surprised with the late frost we had.

Speaking of frost bit. Apple tress didn't fare too well.

Wife's barn quilt for our little building.

Spread some peat moss and black kow over the tilled area and worked it in. Did the same thing on some of the raised beds. 

Mulching around the front of the house.

Painted front porch.

Getting a good drink. 

We picked up a used 6" Meade reflector telescope Saturday as my son has been hinting about one. I had an 8" before we moved to NC so I had an idea of what to look for. We took it to a small tree farm just down the road from the house and did a little start gazing. Here's a picture of Jupiter and its moons.

That's about it for this time. Not much written content until things start coming in. Until next time.
