Veggies Getting Ready To Harvest

I checked on the garden this morning. There were two zucchini ready to gather, tomatoes were ripe and the green beans have small beans on them so I'm looking for beans to be ready to gather about Monday or maybe Tuesday. I think we will have a vegetarian dinner one night next week using all fresh, homegrown veggies.

Tomorrow morning we plan to dig the sweet potatoes. I'm hoping we'll get a few to put up. I only put out eighteen slips so I'm not expecting a lot of potatoes. I'm excited that there's potatoes out there. Our first try has rewarded us with some sweet potatoes at least.

I'll have to make a picture of our sweet potato crop so I can post it here on the blog. Now you all don't get too excited about this. LOL

Varmints have killed some of our birds. Some animal killed all four of our young guineas. Hurt my heart. They were so pretty. I was looking forward to raising some to sell next spring. We still have two but I think they're both hens. :(

We found a skunk in the ducks' pen Wednesday night. He's no longer living but his smell is going to be around for a while. Fortunately, I had the monitor on and heard the ruckus. None of the ducks were injured/killed.

That's all the excitement we've had around here lately. Other than the skunk William caught in the live trap. I appreciate you coming by to check us out. Come back any time.
