I’ve been out of touch for a bit (two weeks) due to a bronchial infection brought on by all the pollen in the air but I’m back up and running!  Here’s a touch of things that have gone on while I was down.

I’m thrilled with how the rose garden is blooming over and over this year.

The old-fashioned white rose began blooming last week. They open pink and then turn white. It’s so pretty.

Last years yellow rose is such a beauty and has just began blooming. It will be moved into my rose garden early fall.

The hostas have outdone themselves again this summer.

We got both gardens planted and they’re doing well. We have onions, cucumbers, squash, cabbage. broccoli, green beans, and corn in the garden at the house and the garden over at the mansion has white potatoes, sweet potatoes, green peppers and tomatoes. The deer are making it hard for the sweet potatoes to produce because they’re finding ways to get to them even when we surround each plant with chicken wire, and we put a perimeter fence within the garden around the plants and they still ate them off Sunday night.

A new rug crocheted for a classmate I graduated with. I finished it while I was sick!  She has a red kitchen like mine.

A new tractor was introduced to the farm.

The heifers were introduced to their first boyfriend.

The garden at the house was reduced this year in hopes of getting rid of the Colorado potato beetles by rotating the potatoes, peppers and tomatoes.
