2013 Garden Journal: july is long gone!

Inside: the air conditioner has been running through the nights so that each member of our family can sleep, but most importantly my beloved husband, who is often up at five in morning and truly needs restful sleep. We have also begun canning the fruits of this years garden.... green beans and carrots specifically.

Outside: weeding, watering and harvesting... and tearing down the growing beds and preparing the yard for reseeding come fall.

Harvesting: this month we have been harvesting string beans, those are purple podded pole beans above, lettuce, chard, beets, kale, onions, various herbs, tomatoes and carrots.

What's New: Miss has taken up bug collecting... well it's butterflies and moths right now, and we are planning and preparing for our fall trip to Michigan, and creating a fall knitting project list. I am suppose to be sewing, but honestly I have about as much time for sewing as I do for blogging, and neither is happening very often at this season in my life.

Family Resource: two things to share with you all before I run out the door to get tomatoes for homemade tomato soup and bread sticks... first the "Character Sketches" from IBLP. These are a wonderful family investment for all ages, and I would encourage you to check them out. Second, though not in home library just yet, but I would love to have it is "The Battle over Birth Control Set" from Vision Forum! I just watched the trailer and I am so thankful for the consistent fighters for truth in this day...

~ Blessings!
