September 16, 2011

Can it really be in the middle of the month of September already?  After a week vacation in Wisconsin (being sick most of the time) we came home to alot of work.

The entire lawn had to be cut and trimmed.  The garden had to be picked - still getting many tomatoes and the tomatoes either eaten or frozen.  Juiced some tomatoes today for a yummy lunch!

We purchased and planted 4 new fruit trees today.  One winesap apple, two Georgia peach and one red skinned peach were put into the orchard.  Joel helped dig holes, we mulched them with chicken and sheep manure and they're ready to go!  Can't wait to get more fruit in the coming years.

Woke up at 6:00 a.m. phone ringing that 35 baby chicks were waiting at the post office.  The new meat chickens are now in the brooder with a new heat lamp on them.  Good thing because were having an unusual cold spell right now!  Down to 40 degrees at night. 

Today I put in a bed of spinach and salad greens, while starting some more garden beds after cleaning the sheep barn and chicken coop.  Was able to pick a few apples, but the trees are still full of yellow jackets.  They are everywhere.

Good news!  The trees I thought were pecan trees really are!!!!  The bad news is I don't see any new pecans on them this year!  Do they bear every other year?  I'll have to do some research on that.
