Thinning Peaches

Thinning peaches was very hard to do. Something about removing peaches when I know I'm going to lose many to squirrels went contrary to what I feel that I should do. But to get bigger and healthier peaches one should thin them out to about one peach per every six inches.

Fall Vegetables

This morning I started broccoli and Brussels sprouts to have them ready to transplant into the garden this fall. 

I also put some rooting hormone on two Clematis clippings I was given by my mother-in-law. Hopefully they take hold and I can plant into the garden soon.

Blueberry Protection & Garden Update

So last night I put together my blueberry cage. It is made from five 1/2" PVC 10' pipes and 8 1/2-in Dia 90-Degree PVC Side Outlet Elbows and bird netting. I attached the bird netting with twist ties.

Blueberry & Raspberry Cage

I just finished building my blueberry and raspberry cage. Hopefully this will keep the birds and squirrels away from our berries.

Tonight's Salad

Quick Glimpse

Here is quick glimpse at how the raised beds are coming along. We have lettuce we need to cut so it can grow again for us before the heat really starts to stay.
