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.
