Time Flies

It's been ages since I posted here. Yet life seems to go on much the same: work, chickens, garden, exercise...

This morning I ran two miles on the treadmill - that won't seem like much to most people, but it's a major accomplishment for me. What I'm really enjoying though is cycling. My longest ride was 20 miles.

On the gardening front it continues hot and dry. The lawns are all brown and daily watering is the only thing saving the garden.





I have to admit that I don't miss tilling and hoeing my old ground level garden. It's much easier keeping raised beds weeded and harvesting is more accessible.

In the last picture the pumpkins are spreading out nicely. I plant them for the chickens. I can already imagine the feeding frenzy this fall.

It's all looking great Tpals...I am going to put some raised beds on the bee plot so I have less mowing but it's also easily maintained...it's just finding the time to do it!!

Glad your enjoying your cycling...I always think it's important to find an exercise you enjoy so that you can keep at it!!

My next question....any thoughts on that follow up book yet??

Your raised beds look good. Dan and I have decided to start building raised beds as well. I'm hoping they will make it easier to keep the wiregrass under control. :)
