Another One Done - July 27, 2021 @goldenoakfarm

On Monday evening at dusk, I saw the blue heron out hunting in the middle pasture. He caught something as I watched but was too far away for me to see what. I hope it was a mouse.

My camera isn’t good in poor light and my hands aren’t very steady, so I apologize for the poor quality. I don’t often get photos of wildlife, so I put these up anyways.

On Tuesday morning I got out early and got the New South garden planted. I’m down to 2 trays in the cold frame, mostly shade loving plants for east and north gardens.

It was another humid, very hot day so I decided to get the mowing done even if the dew was still heavy on the grass. I had to do the push mowing this time, as it wasn’t done last time. I spent a lot of time unplugging catcher chutes as neither is removable. After 3 hours it was done, for another week, and before the rain comes Tuesday night.

On Wednesday my intern will be here and we will be working on the pantry. It’s supposed to rain all day. I got lots of thumbtacks, so we can finish the parts I started on Sunday and move onto the other shelves.
