DH and I opted to stay out of the garden this afternoon and wait until it cools off. Then we want to put berry nets over the grape vines so the birds will leave them alone from now until harvest. DS will help us as we need his long legs an... Read more

climb 10 foot fences several times and wade through shoulder high corn to find the goats. Somehow, somewhere, they found a way to visit the neighbor's soybean and corn fields. DS and I walked clear to the east into the cornfield, doubled... Read more

More peas, green, yellow and purple beans, some banana peppers and a bag of spinach. This is almost like Christmas every day. I got so busy this afternoon that I forgot my 4:30 meeting until they called. So it was a hurried entrance, forgo... Read more
