Here on the homestead, I decided to dedicate to Lughnasadh my list of common veggies, when they can be planted in zone 8b, what they are beneficial with and what they can't be planted around. We try to do companion planting whenever we plant our raised beds. Still lots to do before winter. Enjoy your planting!
We had a week of mid to upper 90's and even 100 last week. It cooled down this week, but this weekend has a small stretch of 90's again.... Just one more month...one more month....one more month... Enjoy! Amy
I got up early to beat the heat and sort the sheep for breeding to start! There's a surprise in the barnyard as well as chick updates. Enjoy! Amy
Some yard and garden work managed to get done before the heatwave came! Check out the latest! Enjoy! Amy
This plant, Tansy Ragwort, is going crazy! I see it in Pastures with livestock and I can't understand why it's left there. This plant kills all livestock, except sheep. There's nothing more heartbreaking than having to put a horse down from tansy poisoning. PLEASE, IF YOU SEE IT IN YOUR FIELDS OR IN THE DITCHES ALONG YOUR PROPERTY, PULL IT AND DESTROY IT!!
