Madison is doing much better. She is her chipper little self again, talking with lots of energy. She says her neck still hurts and its tender to swallow. She doesn’t have full range of motion in her neck but she is doing lots better.
I’m feeling a bit better as well. I can’t believe I picked up a bug in the middle of summer! Good Grief!
I managed to pull the brocoli plants out of my garden, all except one that is a bit younger then the rest. I think the plants were bolting… they just weren’t producing the lovely little compact spears anymore. I also pulled the rest of the lettuce bed that had gotten lost in the pumpkin vines. The rabbits greatly appreciated the greens. I replanted lettuce in another area.
I harvested the rest of my beets and have them cooked and peeled ready for canning tomorrow. I also need to get to canning some tomatoes before they overwhelm me. The cabbage looks like its ready. I will make freezer coleslaw out of those heads.
I had to water all the gardens again.. it is pretty dry here. I noticed that the soybean field has dry spots. I hope it doesn’t affect Rich’s harvest too much. We really need the crops to do well. Our goal is to get a house out here.
I’m not sure if my sweet corn is going to develop or not. Lots of ears but they don’t feel very full of kernels. I did manage to find a spaghetti squash in the midst of the weed haven I call a garden.
Rich just informed me we are picking up hay and straw bales tomorrow. Unfortunately, Austin is working so it will be slow going but we’ll get it done. He thinks we should have close to enough hay to feed our critter for the 5-6 months of winter. That’s such a good feeling. Last year, we didn’t have that and had to buy feed for the goats.
Well, I better get to bed. Goodnight!
