I've been busy

We have been very busy here on the homestead. That pile of branches I showed you before, has been cut down and organized out by my grapes. All that's left is to put it all together.

We haven't heard back from the housemovers as of yet.

I attempted to bring in my potatoes. The lazy bed didn't work as well this year as it has in the past, digging will be required.

My bee hives {the ones I purchased at auction} are sitting out in the orchard. This is where I want them, and thought in the interest of cleaning up around our garage, I would go ahead and place them out and repair them there.

My tomatoes are behaving as though they want to keep producing, yet the will not change from green to red.

There are no apples in Southern Kansas. Remember that frost earlier this year? The one that killed my peach blossums? It hit the apples and pears rather hard. I called the man that I got my 250lbs of apples from last year. He has nothing. I was wondering why apples were almost $3.00 a pound.

And you want to know why I have been gone? My three-year-old poured a large glass of water on my keyboard and mouse. These items are not a priority here, so I had to wait. My wonderfully embarressing mother, gave me her keyboard. Now to set a trap for the mouse.

As I have been gone for awhile, if I missed something on your blogs that you want my attention brought to, please leave a reply telling me. I will be happy to make my way over there.

I need to get back in the swing of things. Soon I will be posting a more detailed account of our going-ons.

Thanks for hanging in there with me.

I'm glad to see you back. You should be getting a box of old mags soon. If nothing else you can use them as fire starters. *grin*

Glad to see you back, though I did enjoy your mom's posts.

Your three year old has a thing for liquids and electronics doesn't he? :)

Alrescate, I recieved them on Monday. I meant to thank you, but got distracted with all the tabbing I have to do. Thank you!

Vickie, thank you :D

Anita, I'm glad to be back. My mother does have a blog. She enjoyed posting here so much that she started one. Though it is not about homesteading. I will post a link on Thursday.

Farm mom, no it isn't.

Stephanie, I know! ugh. . .

I loved reading your mother's stories. She's pretty funny. Now, we all know where you get it from ;). Welcome back!

Came across your blog through some folks over on the INEBG forum. I really admire what your doing. Im starting up my own blog in my attempt at learning and doing things this way and hope you dont mind that I've listed you as a link to read

Water on the keyboard was the culprit? Mine has succumbed to beer several times and somehow survived...but only dribbles. (Spilling would be alcohol abuse! ;-) Glad you're back!
