Happening on the Ridge – August 2016

Summer is coming to a close, but things on the Ridge go on.

The garden finally got a break from intense dry heat to constant rain.  The tomatoes  made the best come back.


That was until these guys showed up


Yup tomato hornworms.  Now the top of all my tomatoes look like this


Nothing really to do except go out each morning and pick them manually and stomp the juicy little suckers!

Lily pads in the gold fish pond are blooming


Then there are the bees


This one hive beards ever evening regardless of the weather, have all summer.

So as the days grow shorter, there is still plenty to do.  Hunting season quickly approaches so we have a tree stand to build. Fall crops of lettuce, carrots, and cucumbers have been planted.   There are chicken eggs in the incubator to raise our layers for next season.

I will leave you with this picture of the trail to the river bottom.

  1. Thanks for stopping by, I am a big fan of your work. One of my favorites was when Rachel played you in the machete re-enactment.
