With summer in full effect the garden is doing very well.
Our bean teepee is approaching the peak and starting to set some beans.
The corn is about 7 foot tall at this point.
We had to pull our our red potatoes out of the ground earlier than ideal. One of the ducks decided to go broody in the middle of the potato plants, and started uncovering some of the potatoes. We chased her off long enough for us to discover the poor girl had been sitting on a bunch of potatoes.
Once we harvested the potatoes into a bucket she came back and was trying to figure a way to get into the bucket to sit back on her eggs. The poor girl.
Oh well so long for now.
Today marks the end of a week long staycation for me. Lots of runs to the dump as we try to devoid our place of unwanted stuff. Also took the opportunity to add a second set of external nesting boxes to our chicken coop.
They made added so much extra room inside as we removed the boxes from inside.
We also were able to harvest another bunch of potatoes, which had turned out to be much easier to grow then when we tried in past years.
I took a couple opportunities to do a little fishing and caught some of the channel catfish we had stocked the pond with last spring.
I’ll fill the rest of this post with some photos from around the homestead. Hope you enjoy.
