The other sign that the end of the summer is here, is the county fair. Yep, it’s come and gone. Thoroughly enjoyed once again, but a part of summer that is now behind us. Matt placed with a Grand Champion in his 4-H project, and I took a red and a white on two of my 3 entries. The rodeo was our highlight, as it is every year. We went twice, both nights spent with good friends that made it even more enjoyable.
We are now busy getting fire wood chopped and stacked; the hay is all baled and safe in the barn. I continue to water, I continue to mow, but I know those jobs will become less and less frequent the later the season gets, and as we begin transition into the days of fall.
|My garden earlier this summer.|
My garden will have most of my attention now, though it didn’t produce as in years past; mostly, I believe, because of the wet spring that continued through early summer. If summer holds a while longer, though, I will have lots of tomatoes, a little corn, and I am praying for my cucumbers! I will have plenty of potatoes and carrots; and I am sporadically tending to my few green beans.
