Yesterday I was busy in the garden. I was able to plant sweet potatoes, more tomatoes, pumpkin, and beans before it got too late. I did a little weeding too. This weekend weeding will be a focus since it is getting out of control.

I planted some more herb plants in the herb garden. The herb garden is looking very well. The roses in the soon to be patio area are doing very well . Two the the bushes are full of roses. I was worried this week because I had problems with the plumbing I would have to dig up area around the rose but that I was lucky.

I still have half of the barn to clean up. It has been slow going. I will NEVER again buy a home with a barn without stipulationing it will be cleaned out first. The roto-tiller is the best method so far I found to get the hard packed manure easier to get shoveled out.

Heat wave

Well, yesterday we had a heat wave. It got around 92 degrees here. Waht a record breaker. It is cooler today. Thank goodness. I was planning on planting the tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, cabbage and kale I had started and have in the cold frame but I was afraid it would be too hot and they would all wilt. I plan on trying to plant them on Friday so I will be around most of the weekend to watch them.

I did get corn and beans planted in the garden on Sunday. Most of the potatoes have made a come back from the freeze a couple of weeks ago. All the grape vines seem to be making a come back too and none of the fruit trees seem to be affected.

My daughter's FFA class came out today to look at the poultry. I hope I created an interest in some of the them to be interest in poultry especially some of the rarer breeds.
