Taking it easy today
I didn’t have any plans for the day, so I just stayed home and enjoyed the day.
I did get out the pruning shears and cut as many wild blackberry vines out of the yard as I could throughout the day. They grow just about as fast as I can cut them down. I think they will win in the long run.

If I don’t cut them out, they grow into real big bushes in no time.
Roses need more water
I checked out my red rose that I gave a shot of water too about a week ago. The bush produced another crop of nice roses, but they looked like they needed more water so I put the sprinkler on them for awhile.
I checked my van batteries to make sure they were charging ok and they were so I left them to do their thing.
Headed over to the berry patch
Late in the afternoon, I walked over to get some strawberries from my brother’s garden.
I walked through this old gate that was built when I was a kid in the 1950s,
And over this log bridge that was built this year.
I stopped by to see how the pigs where doing. They seem to be growing fast and have about doubled in size. Plump looking little guys.
I made it to the strawberry patch which was looking good.
I picked about a quart of these ripe strawberries and ate a few too.
On the way out of the garden I stopped and picked a couple of zucchini squash.
I walked around the yard and ate some plums. These are Satsuma plums, red meat in the middle.
And these are some of my wild plums, a type of plum that has huge crops.
I cut up the strawberries and put some sugar in them. Yum, they are good.
So I really didn’t do much today, mostly just took it easy for a nice day.
