Its been a while since I have posted any updates of my garden.  We have had rain the past 2 days and the birds are loving it along with the butterflies.

I finally planted a small plot with beets, onions and lettuce.  For us Southern gardeners its time for us to be planting our fall crop and I am almost late!

The whole month of July we had rain every day, except for 2 of them, my raspberries and guava’s are ripening and my trees are doing great along with everything else.

I have tried several times to start a worm bin but did not have any success.  I went to empty an old growing box the other day only to find it filled with red wigglers and even it seems to be doing great right now.

I think its time for me to make guava butter and raspberry jam should be next.
