Garden update

I’ve had a hard time this year with rain.  It’s flooded the gardens.  I’ve for melons rotting on the ground.  Hopefully what’s left will grow.

Onions

I bought a bunch of onion sets at a feed store back in the spring.  They have done well.

I had several bulbs left over.  It’s so muddy from all the rain but I wanted to get them planted for a second crop.  They looked rough but hopefully they will do as good as the first batch did.

On a side note I ordered an old canning and drying book off eBay.  Turns out it is from 1919.  Pretty cool I think.  I thumbed through it and there is a lot of info.

Lost a bunch

Of pics.  I had several pictures that my phone ate.  I don’t remember what all I was going to talk about.

I made pasta.  It was actually a spinach pasta.  I must say it turned out worse than some of the playdoh projects from my kids.  I did some reading and will try another batch this week. 

I’ve also been playing with the dehydrator.  I made chives or dried onion greens the other day.  Had pics but read first line of post. They turned out awesome.  I’m working on minced onions and I’m not to for sure they are doing well.

Emu down.  I lost a emu last night.  I knew his life was short lived due to a bad leg.  Seems the single emu has become very good friends with the calf.
