Watering every day and harvesting broccoli and cauliflower. She’s been blanching and freezing it. Blueberries are coming soon and peach trees desperately need thinning. I’m hoping to salvage most of the garden produce this year, but I’m thinking that garden chores and canning are going to be painful this year.
    Chief;

    Get un-laid up! And get un-laid up NOW DAMNIT!

    MOVE THAT KNEE!

    Slip! I’m pushing it hard! But at 73 I don’t heal so fast. My first knee replacement didn’t turn out so well. Trying to do better this time around. I’m doing everything the PT folks tell me to.

    Aside from planting, I want to add to my garden new furniture. We have some plastic chairs and an old wood table, and that's it. I want something that blends with the surroundings but also offers comfort for those lazy afternoons spent lounging in the garden. Rattan furniture seems like a good choice, but I'm not sure. Something like this: https://www.gardencentreshopping.co....natural-rattan. I'm still weighing other possibilities, as well. Like wood. Any tips from you guys?
    Wait..... you edit your post from the other day at 4am this morning and you add a link for garden furniture with a euro price tag? Guess your not really from New York are you!

    Artichokes! First of the season! Corn was knee high by the 4th of July! Hopeful for a much better crop than last year!

    Had a bear that didn't want leave blueberries, by time I got air rifle to piss it off gone.

    Bear meat tastes good.

    Last meal of remaining apple scraps in jail cell. Sentence was carried out and Mr Fox or Mr Coyote ate well last night....

    This one was tormenting me a few weeks. Didn't know where holed up, snuck in the barn once. Disappeared as fast as he showed up. Had started digging a hole IN THE GARDEN.

    Question now is did the CRIMINAL ALIEN bring whole family? To be continued....
