We’ve had good turnout with the garden this year. We’ve had a great bean crop – more than we can eat – peas, zucchini, peas and tomatoes aplenty. We’ve started harvesting and eating the potatoes and the broccoli is on it’s third round. Still have zucchini, squash, peppers and tomatoes going and in another month or two we’ll harvest the carrots. And all this time we’ve had enough lettuce to feed the herd without buying any.
The blackberries are coming, though they’re not huge and some plants dried up – I don’t know if it was due to a stint of brutal heat and dry weather we had or the fact that I moved them this year. Still some to munch on though and there’s been new shoots growing for next year.
Adding a room in the basement for Emma – everyone will finally have their own room when it’s done! Started roughing in walls. Still a lot to do. We will need a new electrical panel installed – we’ve needed it for a long time, but it will be in this room, so want to get it done before sealing the walls up. Also need to cut a hole in the foundation for new, larger window to allow for egress as well as let some more natural light in. One step at a time.
Had the idea to set up the Mac outside and stream a movie for the fam. Was fun – makes me think I should find a bigger screen tv or projector and have some CABC ‘bike-in’ movie nights. The feature this evening? The Triplets of Belleville. Very good.
