Weekend Chores

Due to going "coastal" and working we are far behind. Thankfully hubby has picked up a large job( taking son with) but in doing that it is 6-7 days a week, pushing 12 hours a day. Ah yes.. things look a little neglected!
They did swing this weekend off and so we spent the weekend mowing, weeding and planting. The guys mowed and even with the two of them it takes close to 3 hours. Then there is the weed eating and blowing...
I attacked the flower beds in the front of the house and started towards the herb beds not quit finishing but they definitely look a little more respectable. Once they were finished mowing, we moved to the garden where we weeded and planted. I put in the late green beans, more basil and a few more cucumbers. Another partial basket of tomatoes were harvested along with a few peppers.
The garden is a strange thing for sure. Last year I was buried in peppers and eggplant and this year very few are to be had. The same with our grapes. Over a bushel last year and not even enough for jelly I don't think this go round. Our jelly stash is in sad shape to say the least and I will need to look for some alternative choices, blueberry and apple I think.
 Ah well, lessons learned. Put up more than you might need while you have it, you never know when there will be a crop failure.
