I’ve been a little aloof lately and I apologize. It is one of those times where I want to post about everything but never get around to posting any of it.
I spent a lot of the weekend making invitations for my cousin’s baby shower. I made the cutest ones to tie in with our frog theme. They are all done and mailed out – what a relief!
I also got the long garden almost completely weeded and mulched. All the is left are two empty spots where I didn’t plant anything. I need to pull all the weeds and mulch those areas so they’re ready for next year. Also, the corn is very weedy again and I think I need a hoe for it this time. It isn’t growing very well (maybe due to weed pressure, maybe not enough rain) and I think I planted it a little later than my neighbors. Hopefully it will still produce enough corn to can and some popcorn for the winter.
I’m about berried out. Blueberries, cherries, mulberries, oh my!
I planted 50 strawberry plants awhile ago so maybe we’ll have some of our own next year. So far they’re doing good, just need to be mulched.
I’ve been knitting up a storm. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, I’m now on Ravelry as MarriedToTheFarm. If you’re on there look me up! I didn’t think it would be nearly as cool as it is. I’ve been starting new projects left and right since we’ve got 2 weddings coming up plus it seems like everyone we know is pregnant. Of course Christmas is coming too and like Dave Ramsey says: Christmas is a craft this year. Homemade canned goods and/or knitted stuff for everyone.
Brian has been spending all his evenings and weekends working on the semi. It apparently didn’t come with wet lines which is the part that allows it to work with a dump trailer. We haven’t bought a trailer yet but he made arrangements to borrow a set of doubles for the wheat harvest. Brian and our neighbor, Ken, might get in to wheat this week! Once that is done we’re going to tear down our old garage (it is so ugly!) and put up the new building for cattle. Things are rolling right along around here.
I’ll try to get some new pics up soon so you can see all of this activity! Hope things are going well for everyone else, I’d love to hear what you’re up to.
