Well, I've gone and done it. I took the baby chick(stuffed) from Skeeter. She didn't do as bad as I thought she would. She wined for about 15 mins then stopped. I am so glad. She was driving me crazy!!!!!!hehehe
Ok, it's official, my garden is THE worst garden ever! My tomatoes are shriveling up, my beans(which I was so proud of) are not doing as good as I thought they would, and my corn just got knocked down by a wind storm. My squash and zucchini aren't even doing good. I am now going to swallow my pride and take the fresh produce that friends and family are offering.( I hate to do that!) But, you have to do what you have to do. I'm so glad my life doesn't depend on what I can grow in the garden.(At least right now it doesn't.)Next year will be different. This fall me and Hubby are going to move our garden spot. It's going to be over closer to the new house. We are bringing in river sand, chicken poop, and rotting straw. We are going to plow it under and till it up. That way next spring, we will have a good rich soil to plant in.
In my herb garden, my mint is really doing well. Of course ANYBODY can grow mint.(even me) It is as tall as my shoulders. And, it is blooming like crazy. I have never seen so many pollinators on one flower. Big butterflies,small butterflies,big,medium,and small bumblebees, sweat bees, flies all different sizes. Out of all of the pollinators,(and there are hundreds) I only seen ONE honey bee. That's so sad. I would love to have some honey bees. Let me try that again, I would love to have someone grow honey bees for me on my land. I don't have the guts to work with bees. My grandpa could climb a honey tree and get the honey. He wouldn't even use gloves or a net or anything. Nope, not me. I didn't get that gene.
Well, I've got a lot of things to do today,
So until next time,
Small Farm Girl, gutless.
