Garden 'bout dead now

We don't plant much and this year we didn't have time to take care of and process the little bit we did. Oh well , life happens.

'Maters got a cold wet start ( everything did), then it got hot and dry and they didn't like that at all. Hooked up a timer and multi-ended hose after a few weeks like that and they came back a little. No time to do much , a few sammiches , a few given away , and one batch of sauce.

Pic from today:



Got a few pablanos but they didn't do well either .

The jalalopanos did ok but not great. May just freeze the red ripe ones , got enough to make a gallon or so of jelly / jam outta them. But, no desire to do that right now.





Little apple tree did good , got some pie and sauce fixins brought in today

Peach tree Miss one spraying as it greens up and a treeload of peaches are trash .

Garlic , Planted this spring small clove or two each. just gonna let them stay put and see what they do next year .

Fantastic. You did much better than me. My garden was lame this season...very few veggies from all my plants. Not to mention that I had a few critters eat our green beans, lettuce, and some others

The last of the tomatos were not that great here either. the first batch of lopes were good. and rest kind of just crapped out and died. it was a so-so year out here on the green acres farm. not great and not bad. all the rain did not help either. so now the earth SHALL REST IN PEACE!!!!4 the year.

Long LIVE THE POWERSHIFT!! MAY IT NEVER RUST IN PEACE!!

That is true Scot , but even here in New Yorkistan we can do some things to keep the populations down a bit
Sept 1 - Feb 29 squirrly monster season is open 6/ day limit
Oct 1 - Feb 29 wabbit season , also 6 / day

These :



Turn this :



Into a " rim fire pellet gun " that is probably even more quiet than Todds air rifle of mass critter destruction

Wow, a bullet without the powder just being propelled by the primer.

I'm thinking my pistol might get back into action. It's seems very quiet especially considering that the camera was likely in front of the gun.


.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

I really like where this thread is heading.
I have not seen a box of the super colibri in over two years where I live, I'm actually a bit jealous. Sadly, they get stuck in my rifle barrel
