A Day Late And A Dollar Short Or It's Been A While.

Here I am again after several months of nothing posted.  We have some of the raised beds ready to plant bush green beans, a few hills of yellow squash and two or three hills of cucumbers for some late summer vegetables. 

It's still hot and humid here during the day but the nights are pleasant.  We still have a couple of months of summer temperatures so we're expecting great things of the new vegetables we're planting.

We will have to fight bugs and worms but that's nothing new for us.  A small container with warm water, dish detergent and a few drops of vegetable oil will take care of bugs and the worms.  It will also keep the insecticides off the veggies too.

We still have tomatoes, jalapenos and bell peppers in the garden at this time.  The jalapenos aren't hot this year.  Every once in a while we find one with a little heat to it.  I'm hoping they get hotter before the summer is over. 

A friend said the peppers aren't hot because we've had so much rain this summer.  That's a good thing because we've only had to water our garden two times the whole summer.

I'm missing the birds.  I would like to start another flock around the first of the year.  Once again we'll have roosters crowing, hens singing, guineas warning us of upcoming boogies, turkeys gobbling and clucking, geese honking and working with the guineas to be a live warning system and the ducks quacking as they waddle in line to the kiddie pool for another bath. 

I'd like to get some rabbits.  We could use two does and a buck.  There may come a time that's all we'd have to eat.  We never know what is going to happen next in this old life.  Rabbit stew is good for empty tummies.

I have a new computer so maybe I can keep my blog more updated.  Also, post pictures to go along with the posts.

There we have a quick catch up on what is going on here at Hunny Bunny Haven.  Thank you for coming by and I hope you come back soon.
