Yesterday I sanitized all the water bowls from all the rabbit cages. Yay! I'd have done any detachable food containers too, but #3 was feeding bunnies while I was sanitizing, so they were in use. Another day I guess.
Today we worked more on the garden. I got stakes pounded in, fencing up, gates up, arbor and shepherd's hook in place, and all four of the permanent plants in the ground. Phew! That was a lot of work! Especially considering it got up to 89-degrees today (and reminder - no air conditioning here).
Of course after a couple hours doing indoors chores I came back out to find this...
The Old German tomatoes have suddenly started to turn colors. They've been green for so long, today they were yellow. By evening they were looking almost ready to pick. I do plan on trying one tomorrow.
Yesterday we went to Menards and I picked out the stones and the pattern I wanted for the little walkway in the garden.
Tomorrow the high temperature is supposed to be 64 degrees. Sixty-four degrees. That's the highest expected temperature in the 15 day forecast. Fall is about to start and it's not going to wait. So far all the low numbers in the forecast are still in the low 40's and above. I'm not sure how that will effect the plants that are still growing. I have several rare tomato varieties growing in buckets that are just setting flowers. Yes, I had intended to bring them in when the weather gets too cold and see if I can get tomatoes indoors under lights, but I wonder if the sudden cooler temperatures will slow their growth or if they'll keep on growing.
And here is a photo of a goose, because why not? I love my embdens. We have one gander (Ryan Gosling), and two hens (I can't tell them apart visually and have not given them names yet). One of the girls is friendly and the other is standoffish. My husband tries so hard some days to coax them to come over to him and say hello. I think maybe a part of him is jealous because they come up to me every time I sit down and they play with my hair, nibble my jewelry and my pants, and talk to me.
