Fall seeding continues. This was seeded on Monday and with the warmth and hopefully a little rain, it will be sprouting new plants by Friday.

The dry weather was good as it allowed us to get a lot of weeding done.  We pulled weeds by hand, sliced them off with hand hoes and with wheel hoes.  Most of this was done on Monday and Tuesday and the sun dried up the pulled weeds very nicely.  It was obvious, especially on Tuesday, that the ground was getting quite dry, so the forecast rain will be welcome.  We did some spot watering of newly seeded veggies but everything else is still ok, growing well.  Not to say that rain will not help things along though.  Very little rain, next to nil, on Tuesday evening, so that was no where near the forecast.  Hopefully there will be something there in the next few days.

It looks a little weedy here, not overrun but needing attention for sure,  By Tuesday pm this was much cleaner.

The previous photo now would look more like this. New seeded lettuce rows, plants too small to be noticed yet unless you get really close.

The various animals are fine,  no problems to report.  The wee colt still growing and only a little tamer as we still have not done any concentrated work with him.

The beans still looking good but last week was a bit too cool for their liking so we expect a lower yield this week, sorry.

The potato patch is looking a little weedy and some plants a little weary.

No pictures this week of any four legged or feathered critters, only veggies.  the garden photos are from left to right along the garden at distant intervals.  Mor animal photos next week.  Look on our Facebook page for any updates over the next three days

The summer squash is way, way behind but growing well and is weed free.  Warmer weather over the next few days will be to it's liking and rain would be welcome.
