Inspector Suki is always ready to help with outdoor jobs. We asked her to investigate the set of apple blossoms in one of our trees. She reported a satisfactory status after checking out many branches and the developing fruit.
We planted tomatoes (40 plants) and peppers (18 plants). The tomatoes are mostly Italian Roma varieties for making sauce, and the peppers are the old reliable Lady Bells.
Inspector Suki rests in the shade after supervising our efforts. She also found a smell here that needed sniffing and rolling.
Bill mows the large horse pasture. Other than deer traveling through, we do not have other current inhabitants. This means at least a monthly cutting of both this and the front pasture. Hope the 40-year-old Ford tractor holds up!
