This week brought on the start of the school year, which is year 13 for my teaching career. Every year feels like I’m starting a new job. I’m hoping this year goes well!
And on to gardening! The strawberry bed had gotten so unruly and to be honest, I don’t get a large amount of strawberries. So, I decided to clear out the bed and I’m going to plant a cover crop and hopefully make the soil even better.
The cattle panel trellis that goes from one raised bed to the other is looking great! There are always lots of big yellow luffa blooms on it and the luffas and birdhouse gourds are growing fast!
The trellises in the yard are looking great!
And I love growing sunflowers! This year our tallest is around 10 feet tall! The pollinators are enjoying the blooms and the chickens will enjoy the seeds this winter!
This weekend is going to consist of lots of canning because we have a ton of tomatoes that need to be preserved! The end of the month update will be coming soon!
