We got back last week, Wednesday night, and itès been busy, busy, busy since.
The greenhouses have filled out. I'm yanking the squash plants out of greenhouse #1. The corn is touching the roof in there, with tassels on. That's the sweet corn. No ears yet. Peppers are filled out and lush, with tons of flowers. Green tomatoes everywhere. Pickling cukes are producing, and I canned two jars so far. Beets and mangels are huge. Peas are still producing. I feel like I'm in some alternate universe where the garden overproduces. It's amazing! And most amazing- the weeds did not go crazy while I was away! Except the perennial bed. It's a disaster.
The puppies grew like bad weeds while I was away.
The Littles did great while I was gone. Grandma had to wake them up once, and Husband had to do a few repairs, but they survived, the critters survived, the garden survived. All is well.
