The garden is giving us the various harvests we've hoped for. No, not quite the usual variety I normally grow because I've purposely cut back this year. Still enough though that there is something to harvest and process nearly every day now.
The millet seed sown in the field garden is growing and will be tilled under as green manure before it goes to seed.
My main freezer (the honkin', big, six-foot long one) is in need of defrosting, organizing and being made ready for the onslaught of vegetables and fruit soon to fill it to bursting. I've been guilty of just helter-skelter throwing in (for the most part) those goodies I've already harvested and processed.
I have an empty raised bed in the garden that I plan on planting out today with salad greens that hopefully will grow and provide good salads for us well into the fall.
I actually feel quite organized at the start of this almost-last-week of July. Yesterday the house got a good cleaning and I cleared my desk of the clutter while making lists which always gives me a

I've got only three projects "in the works", and one recently received order of fabric for a special project that will have to wait until the aforementioned three other projects are completed. Of course, there is always a pair of socks on my knitting needles should I need something to keep my hands busy while sitting and visiting if the occasion arises.
The Patron Saint of Biting Insects has smiled down upon us and called in the majority of his soldiers. There are still cetain times of the day when one has to take measures to avoid being harassed by the little blood suckers, like dawn and dusk and at times during very humid, windless days, but they are no longer a threat to my sanity 24/7.
I've yet to even get out the brushes and other supplies for the outside doors and trim I want to paint this year. Frankly, once the weather warmed up enough to think about painting, it quickly got too hot and uncomfortable (and buggy) to actually start that task. Shortly now, I'll have to get serious about that job or I'll find myself wondering of a day if the temp will be high enough for paint to dry properly!
As the months of summer keep rolling by, what "good weather" tasks do you have left on your list to accomplish yet this season?
