Transitioning from big adventure to home to back-to-work has been a bit challenging. The horrible, weed-overgrown blight ridden garden didn’t help, nor did the need for a new dishwasher and the death of my fruit-laden tomato plants from late blight. Sigh. Then there’s the hole in the hoophouse, damaged in a severe thunderstorm that happened while we were away. It damaged the maple, too. More on those items later. This post is celebrating the good things.
The zinnias are beautiful, and make me happy.
My pepper plants are producing peppers despite the weeds competing for space, nutrients and light.
The new girls are settling in, happily venturing outside and are getting used to us being in the pen with them.
The new dishwasher has a sanitizer feature for canning jars, included free installation and is now installed and ready to run. Maybe my dishes will no longer need pre- and post- washing. Yay!
