I am still without a real computer, but thought I could handle a quick garden update using the trusty, yet difficult to type on, tablet. So here is a little peek into our garden.
Things are looking good for the most part. We have harvested a few beans and learned we need to plant a lot more next year. Some peppers, zucchini and squash, and today our first cucumber. I've learned about homemade soap sprays and pest controlling garlic sprays and just how usefull they can be. We had some trouble with the cabbage butterfly and lost a few heads and some broccoli, but have replanted for fall and plan to transplant some mint, in pots, from my brothers garden which has been overrun by the butterfly repelling plant. But my favorite thing right now is watching those itty bitty melons growing a little bigger every day.
Some technical difficulties have been making blogging nearly impossible. We are working to remedy the problem and hopefully I'll be back here soon. Meanwhile, a recent visit from a long lost friend has me reinspired and I can't wait to get the ball rolling on the blog and the etsy shop once again. Even though I am unable to post regularly, I am still working behind the scenes and will surely have some fun things for you when all the kinks are worked out. With our first year of homeschooling behind us and feeling much more at home in our new surroundings I feel optomistic about creating a family routine that allows me time for my own projects and very excited about what that could mean for me and my family in the future. I hope you'll come back soon to see how we're doing and please, let us know what you have been up to too.
