It seems our farm is being overrun with vines.
I like the look of them, climbing up the barn, shed
and even the yard light, but they are really a
Out in the back yard they are trying to take over the wild plum trees.
Some of the trees are so entangled with the vines that they literally
are breaking in half due to the weight.
Back in April I went on an all out assault against those
tree stranglers and thought I'd done a pretty good job, but
I was wrong. They are back, maybe not as bushy and full, but
once again they are trying to strangle my plum trees.
Yesterday I tore down all the vines that were trying to climb up
our chimney on the west side of the house.
These vines seem to have little suckers on them where they were
sticking to the siding. Very gross.. And I cut back the dead cane from
three bushes that were looking very poor. Those bushes were so
poky that I ended up with scratches every where and had thorns poke through
my leather gloves - ouch, those suckers hurt!
Today's garden product.
My first ripe lemon boy tomato, a roma that fell off that's
not quite ripe, some peppers and onions.
Can't wait for more.
Chyann and I rode horses for about an hour and a half today.
It was fun, but not for long enough according to Chyann.
A big HELLO to my brother in AK!!
He reads my blog and says I should post more often.
