Default tomato harvest and other things

My wife has been picking tomatoes and freezing spaghetti sauce. She plants small plots of corn every other week so we have a regular supply of fresh corn-on-the-cob for dinner. We picked the cabbage and made this year's batch of sauerkraut last month.


The recent rains really perked up the pumpkin patch and there are several large melons ripening as well.

the melons here are still green and shiny so i think i
have some time yet before we start to try them. i've had
to read up on them since i've not grown these particular
melons before (plus i've not grown melons much at all to
begin with since my first few attempts ended up giving
such poor results).

We just started splitting firewood from the big pile of logs out back. We have enough for the coming year but are stocking up for the winter after that. I'm looking forward to an end to all this heat and humidity.

yeah, the hot weather has made things difficult for us
this season too in varying ways. mid day siesta and AC
are pretty much required now.

be careful out there! make sure to drink enough water
and to not overdo it. i'd wait for cooler weather since
you already have enough put by.
