Got the Blahs
I have to say there are about two times of the year I start getting really bummed out working around here. Mid to Late January when it feels like the cold will never stop and I am so sick of cutting firewood I want to scream and Late August when everything gets so overgrown and tired looking and I am so sick of mowing grass I want to scream.
It doesn't seem to matter how hard I try by late August there are always tall weeds somewhere I never got around to cutting, pulling or mowing. The garden is starting to become weed choked as well since most everything has finished and I stopped caring about what is left.
The only things I have still growing besides more Tomatoes than I know what to do with, is a short row of Potatoes and a bed of Sweet Potatoes. Oh I guess the Peppers are still producing over in the main raised bed area but I don't take care of them only mow around it. It's like the weeds grow two foot over night right now though and I am just damned tired of messing with em.
It's also so hot and humid I have to take frequent breaks and change shirts just to cool down.
Not even the sheep venture out during the day this time of year but hide in the barn as much as possible until the sun goes down.
Things are just waiting to begin winding down now. The Goldenrod is getting ready to start blooming and hopefully in a few weeks things will start cooling off once again. Not that this hasn't been an amazingly cool Summer so far but the heat sure has made an appearance this week.
There is very little space left for more Tomato storage so I will more than likely begin having people come by and pick what they want. We did get some Apples this year surprisingly that survived the storm, wind and pest damage and I need to get to picking them soon.
I just need to push through this lazy blah period until I can get jump started again. Dad mentioned we needed to start cutting firewood next month and that will always shake me out of my stupor for sure.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
