Evidently, this year’s tomato crop did not get enough sun. Even so, I have a bumper crop of green cherry tomatoes. I will have to “vine” ripen them inside. Hopefully, they still taste their usual…delicious.
With the October chill in the air, it surprising that the tomatoes are still ripe on the vine. I was especially happy with today’s harvest, considering a ground squirrel made off with the purple potatoes
Trying to pick the best cover crop for the cold winter. Oats and peas will probably win out this year–due to pressing time constraints. The sheep will have a more diverse menu in ’23.
The signs were there, but it took a well-placed game-camera to confirm this trio of berry-eaters on the ranch. Taking a nocturnal stroll and dinner around 4:00 am, they were probably hidden and soundly sleeping by sunrise.
Yes, the summer shearing is almost done. The first thirty fleeces are sold and being processed at the woolen mill. The next wave of shearing woolies will commence next week. This summer has been super busy….ranch work, finding houses and trying to write my thousand words a day. A multigenerational anthology is in the works. Hopefully, the lit agents will pick this manuscript up before I start contemplating self-publishing.
