Day 279, August 26, 2013: This is what happens when a bird gets into the greenhouse and can’t get back out. I don’t know how long the poor thing was flying into the plastic, but it did finally manage to get out.
Day 280: The pear harvest. This is the first year we’ve gotten pears from our trees. I will be canning pears this week
Day 281: Today’s creation from the garden harvest–pizza sauce
Day 282: This little moth made his way into my house overnight
Day 283: Sunset
Day 284: A new washing machine. After 5 weeks of going to the laundromat, I am so excited to do laundry at home again 🙂
Day 285: The pears are now ready for storing for the winter.
Day 286: I saw a mouse in the living room last night. And the worst part? My son says he’s known for about a week that there is a mouse. He’s seen it at night while he’s playing X-Box.
Day 287: This is what my counter looks like most days, although the exact combination of vegetables and fruit does vary a bit from day to day. I love my garden (and the chickens that are laying the eggs)
