  Oklahoma Blizzard 2011
Well, had 20 inches the first week of February. Another 10 on the 16th. Hard to believe this is OK. More like Maine, or is that Alaska?

We're having a terrible snow storm, right now.The wind is blowing, and we have no visibility. How did you build your greenhouse? I'm giving myself one for my birthday. It's in the planning process right now.

  Fall Chores
Well, finally got the wood delivered for burning this winter. Hard to take when someone responsible turns into a brainless twit. At least I'm finally getting my own chainsaw repaired by a RELIABLE company and can finish out the work myself.

Enjoying??? New puppies. Rescued from the local animal shelter. Now they are 4 months old and it seems like they've been here forever. Anybody have any tricks on training to speak or staying with me when I walk that they'd like to share?

We're getting hardneck garlic. My son is looking forward to pickled garlic. He had some years ago at The Garlic Farm in Phoenix. We're hoping to come up with a recipe, that's close to what he remembers!

I'm getting the bed ready to put garlic in. It should be here later this week. This will be the first time we've planted in the fall. Sounds like I may have better luck this way.

  And the heat goes on....
Tried planting our fall crop of kidney beans and onion. Only to have them not germinate because of the heat. Rather frustrating. Was pleasantly surprised to see them come up after an evening in the 60's (first one in over a month)

  July Garden
The heat is incredible, OK is on a run for 100 degree days, and no, I am not talking heat index. Been watering every night to keep the vegetables alive. Managed to get 57 lbs in the last week. So of course, we are saucing today. Can't beat homemade tomato sauce. Picking our spice peppers tomorrow to dry and pickle for winter cooking. If the weather breaks, we may get a fall crop yet. Planning on more broccoli, cauliflower, onions and carrots.

Got our first pie pumpkins from the garden. Cut them early to rescue them from those dad gummed squash bugs. Hate those buggers. Will be trying to bake them enough to loosen the meat and use it for pies, bread, etc. Will let everyone know if it works.

Growing is great. Tomato sauce with no salt, no preservatives and no pesticides. Can't beat a homemade sauce that works out to only cost about high end ($.20) per pint versus the cans in the store at $.99 each.

How is the garden doing? We're not doing as well as we should be. At least the elk have finally moved on. I planted more salad vegs.
