I’ve been meaning to climb the ladder for almost three weeks now, and hadn’t.
Yesterday I finally did.
Today is busy. We have to get the trash and recycling taken care of, have furniture to move (some gents are coming to sand and refinish the floors…after forty years or more they need some help), and this week we start drawing and Spanish classes.
Here’s a quick view of the Wishetwurra Farm Garden. I took some close-up photos, which I’ll get to in another post, as soon as I can.
Summer’s coming to a close, though it’s still warm. In the little greenhouse, it’s cooled enough for some planting for fall and winter greens.
Here’s the usual introductory view from the sixteen-foot height of the Herbert Poindexter Memorial Aluminum Ladder Section.
A closer view of the north end of the garden. We’ve had almost no rain in the last eight weeks, and not that much in the months preceding. We continue to water. There is hope for some rain in the next few days. Our fingers are crossed.
Here’s the mid-garden. It looks like fall. The hay is where the winter squash used to be.
Here’s what the deer did to a squash that tried to grow outside the fence.
Since the last report, we’ve brought in six or seven more loads of manure, three loads of seaweed for mulch, and two loads of hay, also for mulch. We’re building up the compost pile, improving the soil, and looking towards to cold part of the year.
The great Riley Puckett sings of being “ragged but right”.
You can go to youtube and hear the tune.
“Ragged but Right” is the phrase that came to mind when I saw this pair of yellow cactus-flowed zinnias.
Well, here’s to “ragged but right”.
We’ll be back soon.
