Cutting geotextile fabric was pretty easy with ordinary scissors.
After putting a
massive number of onions onto the curing racks a
month ago, I mostly forgot about them. Well, I did bring in dozens of
the largest specimens for soup-making during that time period, packing
away perhaps as much as a quarter of the harvest into frozen winter
I've got a good feeling about
our new geotextile
best guess was that the found grapevine near the site of the old
homeplace on our farm was a Concord. So when Mom's Concord started
churning out so many ripe fruits she had to embark on a daily juicing
session, I braved the thorns and weeds and went to take a second look
at my mystery vine.
I used the Ninja
blade attachment today to
cut down mature Rag Weeds.
I thought that planting
brussels sprouts early, kill mulching around them to keep down weeds,
them up with a row cover to beat cabbageworms would
create a set-it-and-forget-it fall crop. But I should have realized
nothing is really set-it-and-forget-it in the garden.
I had some trouble finding
twine in stores around here this Summer.
Last year, I
estimated we'd need 27 bales of hay to get our two semi-dwarf goats
through the winter.
We actually socked away 36 bales, though, just to be safe.
The harvest continues, a
quart of frozen peppers here and a bushel of curing butternuts there.
