We picked our first cucumbers a few days ago and harvested our corn 2 days ago. The corn, due to lack of rain at the critical time wasn’t as big as in the past, but it still is tasty. We are just finishing last year’s corn from the freezer. I don’t know if we will have enough to put up much this year, but I will take what God provides.
We had to replant our cantaloupe and pumpkins. They are just breaking ground last week, so we will see how they do. The tomatoes are there, but slow in coming.
We still have a very large hog to put down. We just never got around to it, and now it looks like the fall? This is the last of our own hogs. We have two young Jersey steers (Jersey beef is the best to eat.) which should be ready in winter and early spring. AND we bought a pregnant sow a few weeks ago. I want to get our own breeding stock again, but it will have to wait until the fall. (I think I said that last year.)
The bathroom remodel saga still goes on. Remodeling a bathroom which is not square and which has many quirks in the walls and plumbing has been no fun. Looking back, I should have gutted the whole thing including the towel closet and started from scratch. The budget would probably been about the same and I would have finished a week ago. Yesterday I thought we were ready at least to have the bathtub operating (shower walls are proving a bear), but alas the tub drain is leaking. Oh, it goes on and on.
Oremus pro invicem!
