Oops looks like my post today got filed 8/1/19. Oh well... Anyhow to continue... Leaves are toast the ongoing freezes have bitten them away incrementally the pasture border to the east first and now the more protected plots to the north are also wrecked.

I have a lot of work to do.
I had modest successes but many challenges ahead. Patch prep would be easy with machinery but... not going that route. For me its an expense... its not profitable. But I should prep the areas in case the opportunity comes.
Same with the smaller areas. If I get the bindweed (morning glory) out and mulch spread... If I get the perennial weeds under control and the tree roots out then I will be where I need to be to be/ have the option to grow something in 2020. I would love to take the year off but it would make some sense to grow marrows, field pumpkins, corn, and a couple giants... Tomatoes maybe. I get the feeling there is something missing though.
