Living in the woods is a dream come true. I love coming home at night. Weekends are my favorite time, especially in the evenings. I love nothing more than sitting out on my deck and listening to the crickets. Some night are really loud and I try not to think about the actual number of crickets it takes to make such a sound and where they are all hiding. Lol
We know there are mountain lions around, but I haven't really seen any critters out and about. There is a skunk that comes out in the evenings. The other morning I found this on our porch. Evidence of some raccoons that got into some trash I left out on the porch(bad, I know). They had a little feast out there.
We haven't been hiking that much, only taking walks around the campground. We've caught some impressive sunsets and full moons in the last couple of months
I have a few flower boxes going on my deck but not much of a garden. I need to make some covered boxes to grow vegetables. We get very little full sun. Our entire property is covered in oak trees. I've never been much of a gardener, but I can't seem to find many vegetables that grow in shade. I tried some tomatoes in one of those topsy turvy planters that hang upside down that I got at Big Lots for .99 cents. It has produced a tomato. One. Tomato. Isn't it beautiful? Lol. I'm not exactly sure when I should pick it. It looks pretty ripe right now. Anyone have any experience with growing vegetables in a mostly shaded place? I guess I'm late to the party. Are there vegetables you can grow in the fall? Must google.
Speaking of fall. I couldn't help myself and put a few fall decorations out. I didn't put out the witch hat shown below yet. I'm not that crazy. Although I was talking to joe today about where to put the Christmas tree. :). Hey people, it's coming! Might as well be prepared.
Ok I'm a little crazy because I did make some halloween cards. I was bored.
