So here we are in late July, and it was still light in the backyard at 9:15 p m. The wheel has begun to turn, and it’s not light til nearly 10 anymore.
The garden and patio – where the bird feeders are – has been full of blue jays lately, with their noisy selves. Counted 7 one day last week, all perched on and around the tall feeder. The deer tackled some of the impatiens, too – just as I was getting ready to spray them with Liquid Fence. The greenery growing through on the brick patio is finally coming under control, with white vinegar sprayed on everything.
The collard greens have taken over the garden for the moment, and the potatoes will be ready to dig by the end of August. Looks like a hugely successful crop this year. Just planted more kale, and am ready to harvest the green beans again. A busy happy fun and beautiful summer here in the woods.
