I spent the day outdoors today. I mowed the yard and took a hoe to both gardens. Even though they were put out late, everything is looking promising. I have 5 pepper plants, 1 cantaloupe, about 13 tomato plants and one cherry tomato. 4 of them are roma tomatoes. We have two rows of purple hull peas, 4 rows of corn, a row of cucumbers, and half a row of okra, and a couple of rows of green beans... mmm dill, basil, oregano, mint, and... that's all I can remember!
Later today, Joe ground up about 15 pounds of deer meat and I got it mixed up to make jerky tomorrow. He left about a pound and a half and I sliced into fairly thin and make that into jerky tonight. It only took about 4 hours to cook. Needless to say that's what we had for dinner!
I had so much fun this afternoon watching the tiny yellow and black finches at the feeder. I counted 6 at one time. We have 2 hummers that visit a few times a day. My neighbor brought over about 15 ears of sweet corn. As much as I wanted to grill some tonight, I decided to put them in the freezer til the boys get back. They LOVE corn on the cob!
