only had a quick run today so took the rest of the day off to take care of some choirs
yanked the watermelons ended up with 7 worth keeping the rest was over the fence... it looks better semi cleaned out will take the flame thrower to it some time soon..

broke out the tiller to rough up the main garden seeded it and layed down straw and watered 3/4 of it. this weekend planned on pulling up the peppers and seeding that area as well, so the only thing out there will be the winter squash..

hopefully be able to pressure wash everything to put away for the season.
kind of glad that this season is winding down it,s been a strange one.. but with the help of the dw it has been fruitful ....

woke up this morning & took care of the chickens & looked for any new chicks that hatched. only 1 more but heard the faint peeps of another about to zip. when i got to my car to go to head off to work the temps on the dash said it was 37! biiirrrr. no frost on the ground thank goodness. need to pull the rest of the tomatoes since forecasts are saying this weekend will be cold enough for possible frost.
