Today turned out to not be what I expected at all. I had such high hopes of finishing the weeding in my vegetable garden, and picking raspberries. I had also hoped to sleep in a little. Well, I woke up at 5:30 am to the sounds of the Harley boy crying…nonstop… After telling him to lie down about a hundred times, and getting only louder crying in response., I finally figured out he needed to go out and potty. Poor thing. So, after he was pottied, I attempted to get back to sleep for a little snoozer but it just wasn’t meant to be. So, I woke up, got dressed, and went to Krupp Farms to pick raspberries. I had meant to pick 20 pints, but the heat got the better of me and I ended up with only 10 pints before I had to call it quits. It was already 94 degrees by 9am. Holy smokes!
So, I came home, prepped all the raspberries, and made jam. I froze the rest for smoothies. Harley, Nathan and I could not help but eat some along the way. They were so good. I cannot wait for smoothies. I may go back to the farm on Saturday and attempt to get another 10 pints, but we will see.
I did not make it out to the garden. It was just too hot to do anything outside, and I just watered instead. But, take a look at the garden. Holy weeds Batman! I have to get out there. My little plants are suffocating. To make matters worse, I have a mole in the garden. Harley tried to do his part and catch it, but he couldn’t quite get him before he made it into the garden. My Neighbor is on a quest to catch all things mole, so hopefully he gets him.
So, instead of weeding, I decided to make zucchini bread. It is currently in the oven, and we are waiting with bated breath. I will let you know how it goes. I hope everyone had a great Independence Day. Back to the grind tomorrow!
