7/11/20 Update for 2019
The spring of 2019 Remington did some dirt work and cleaned up some of the 5 acre woods on the Southwest side of the property behind the barn. We were surprised to see a variety of wild flowers set in and the wild hyssop was abundant! In 2018 Mullein was prevalent.
This was Little Man's favorite place to run and explore while we were in the woods. What a tree climber and varmint hunter extraordinaire!
Many intentions listed for 2018 did not come to fruition. It was an extremely wet summer but we did move some of our garden beds into a central location with livestock panels to enclose the entire area. We didn't have much of a deer problem, but for the apple trees.
Tomatoes didn't do well that we had planted in the tractor tires. But, the peppers loved growing in the tires and we had a bumper crop; both mild and hot varieties.
