Hello everyone! It has been a beautiful week here in Floyd. I went to our local supermarket the other day and found these beautiful apples.
I purchased about a half bushel of them and made applesauce. The metal dishpan you see here belonged to my mom. It makes me happy to use her things.
I saved the peelings and made apple jelly from them.
Yay! We are working on building back up our jam and jelly section of the pantry as we were almost out.
I am trying out a new seed company. I have been watching a lot of their youtube videos and like them a lot. The brush on the left is a corn silking brush. I used it last night and really liked it. It made silking the corn so much easier.
Just look at the size of these black cherry tomatoes. This pot is at our front door. I have never put tomatoes there before but they seem to be doing good so far.
The squash on the right however is not doing so good. I ended up pulling it up yesterday and throwing it in the field so hopefully it won’t spread to the other plants. I sprayed everything this morning with neem oil. I have never used it before but so many of the gardeners I watch use it all the time. Hopefully it will help.
I thought I’d share this little pretty corner of my front porch. It is such a peaceful place to sit.
Enjoy your day and God bless.
