Still working at it!

We are still working on our fence. David did get the last post holes dug today for our orchard. So that is great. Next week we will hopefully get the rest of the trees cut for our fence and before we do that, get the rest of the fencing up around the garden. We have killed 15 meat chickens and two ducks and have them in the freezer. So that will also help with less chickens being around to eat my plants when I replant them. There is still time to get a garden in for the season. Some of the plantings will be for a fall garden. But that's ok. I had planned on planting a fall garden anyways. Now it will be my main garden. The summer plants don't have a lot of time left to produce really well for a bountyful harvest. But that's ok. (Less work to do in the kitchen canning it. :) ) I think the sadest part about my gardening experience this year is that Leslie, Heather, and Kari are having a bad year too. That is a bummer. But things can turn around on us and we can still have a successful garden. Here's hoping.
