Catching you up...
I can't believe so much time has passed since my last writing. And some big things have happened. There have been some disasters and many wonderful times.
As for disasters.... I wrecked my shoulder carrying too many hay bales and I had surgery to get a bad mole removed. I had to let a lot of projects go undone. I couldn't do the work or adapt for a way to get things done. I have so much respect for people that live and function with daily pain. Next week I go to the doctor to find out about my shoulder. It won't heal by itself.
Now the good stuff. The sunrises have been incredible. The last two weeks there has been ground fog and the sun comes up into a mystical landscape. Most of the garden has survived the 'end of August' Frost. I put a big fence around the tomatoes to keep out the cold. Because of me a lot of beans and lettuce didnt get picked. I sort of let it all go. The orchard is needing me, some of the trees had apples and I didn't help them this month. I ate a few and they are very good. I feel like working in the garden again now. The second flock of chickens is adult and going in to be processed this week. I took care of them every day and they are really healthy. So I did something very right. Probably I did more right than I think I did. But for sure the weeds are all over. I can do something about that. So that will make me feel better anyway. REDOS.
