So far I have spent seven and a half hours in the garden today. I will spend at least another three out there before the day is over. This, my friends, is why I hesitate to get a job in the summer. I am putting more hours into the garden right now than I would at a full time job. It’s too bad I can’t grow money! We’d be rich.
I’m pulling peppers off of the plants now. So far we’ve eaten all of the ones I’ve picked, so I haven’t had a chance to freeze or can any. Tonight I am doing cream cheese stuffed, bacon wrapped Cubanelle peppers for dinner. Yum! So far it’s only the “hot” peppers that are ready to pick, but there are a lot of sweet peppers waiting in the wings, as you’ll see in the pictures below. I even spotted several tomatoes! It won’t be too long until canning season will be in full swing.
My husband has been working on the shed ever free moment he has, but I think tonight I might ask him to help me finish getting the fence finished. We’ve had the materials for a few days already, and thanks to the evidence I found this morning, I realize now that the fence should really have top priority over everything else. I don’t want to lose all of my hard work to some hungry, stinking deer. Anyway. The roof trusses are done, and all four walls are up on the shed. If we finish the fence, maybe by this weekend he’ll have the roof on and everything sheathed. I’ve been working hard in the garden so I can take a few days off of weeding to help him.
Hope y’all have a great weekend!
