Aside
Seeing Red

Well, I have had our nightstand since I was a child..it was bumped, bruised, scratched and drawn on ( mostly from me in childhood tantrums ( which could have been last week))..so we decided to tidy it up a little and give it a fresh finish..mahogany does clean up nice:

Some Eggplant Parmigiana Anyone?

..well the eggplants really came into their own these last couple of weeks..been a good year for veggies..first time for eggplants for us..they are great but they do take up more space than other veggies so whether we grow more next year will depend upon A* and he recipe..more soon!

Spreading Seeds

With fall in the early stages and A* and I with grass seed (from 2 years ago) we needed to double down. We were not even sure if the seed was still good..the land is not perfectly flat, free from (all) rocks ( but most of the fist sized and larger were removed) or truly finalized as far as planning was concerned…but we have an area cleared and so we decided to make an attempt and see if the seed was still good and would grow.

We did not seed a 10-15 ft tractor path near the woods/areas we are still going to be working on as we knew the tractor will be back and forth over the area so there was no sense in doing anything..but most of the rest got a liberal dousing of grass seed..And yes, we took a look at the weather to make sure that both cooler weather and rain were forecast..yep..fall is on the way we should have both in spades!

..the old truck cap is our tractor ‘bits’ cover..when the backhoe is not in use it is always in the way..hopefully the grass grows around it..but then again when we need the backhoe again it is going to be torn up..but nothing ventured nothing gained.

..if it does take mowing is not going to be fun..but it beats dirt!

Banking Wood in Perfect Weather

..no bugs, rain or heat..a good time to cut split and stack the wood up near the house. The final 2 cords are done, now it is only a matter of burning it!
