Wow – August did just whiz by — even without me pushing it along!
Most of the outside garden stuff is done producing . . . now for the clean up process! But in the hoop houses — there are peppers still blooming, and spinach and lettuce sprouting. Now, if I could only get the lights to work correctly.
Another sign of fall — one morning, while sitting on the deck enjoying a quiet moment with my coffee/book I heard a strange noise coming from the barn . . . finally decided that it is one of three new roosters trying out their voices! Imagine a teenage boy shouting with all their might and the strange cracking that would go along with that. They are just beginning to crow – not consistantly, not the same one – not even every day. So hopefully the hens will start laying in the not too distant future — eggs, anyone?
In the mean time – while it has been cooler I haven’t gotten to the torch as much as I would like to — I have new tools and some more coming soon. Saturday I took a good portion of my inventory to the Galesburg Civic Art Center – I am the October Artist of the Month!
