I’m on vacation this week and part of next. I’ve prewritten and scheduled posts for this week and next, so y’all won’t have to go without.
I’ll be posting on Instagram while I’m gone (which automatically posts to the Love & Hisses Facebook page as well as Tumblr). If you’re not on Instagram, Facebook or Tumblr, no worries – I’ll do a massive roundup post once I’m home from vacation, so you won’t miss anything.
Crooked Acres Friday.
To round out this week of Crooked Acres-ness, I have pictures of stuff growing around the property. We didn’t plant a garden this year, not because of the weather or anything, just because we didn’t want to. We’re getting our produce at a local farmer’s market this summer. But there’s still plenty of stuff growing around Crooked Acres!
Blueberry bushes in the back yard. I actually got enough blueberries this summer to make a batch of muffins. The blueberry bushes were SUPER happy, at least until we had a couple of weeks of super dry weather. Now they’re less happy, but I expect they’ll bounce back okay.
That mess right there is our compost heap. You probably can’t tell from this picture, but it’s covered in tomato plants. You can hardly go two feet in any direction on this property without running into a volunteer tomato plant.
I put the game cam out because Fred is pretty certain we’ve got a southern flying squirrel living in that tree, and we hoped to catch it on camera. No luck so far, but we did catch the very rare Southern Climbing Archie, so it was worth having the camera out there.
(The look on his face cracks me UP.)
