As for a garden update, I pulled all the carrots from the grow bags and planted my garlic in them. It's very late to plant it, but....by the way it rained the next day after planting the garlic, so fingers crossed.
And guess what I brought in? I couldn't believe it myself!
3.7# of carrots (most small but some large ones too), and 3# of jalapenos. I was so happy! Carrot tops can be used to make mouthwash. We saved some carrot tops for one daughter's rabbit too, and the carrot blanch water can be saved and frozen for a veggie broth base for a winter soup. And of course carrot peelings can go to the chickens or compost.
We had a busy weekend, despite Hubby's long night hours. It was also Homecoming for our youngest, so I had the title of "photographer" in the evening.
We missed out on a ride Saturday too. Our biker friends grouped up and went (sadly without us). It was the perfect weather for it too. It's on the list for next year though.
Sunday I did a 2 hour craft show. We didn't get that many customers, but we made a little bit and had a load of fun.
By the way, the dates we could go to the island, the place is booked already. Plan B is in motion, but the island, aside from the Harley is our "sanity saver" in more ways than one. We'll see what happens.
Today I'm joining Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.
