3rd Quarter Check In – July, August, and September 2019

This sums up July, August, and September! Kitters in the basket!!!

In my defense, I started handwriting this post in October.

Summer in 4 lines:

Hot! Hot! Hot!

Weed, Weed, Weed!

Harvest, Harvest, Harvest!

Can, Can, Can!

After being under water through May and June, it quit raining and there were deep and wide cracks in our apple field. But the weeds kept growing…

Review of Goals:

Read Books: Does still reading the paper and maybe a catalog count? Still working my way through Thoreau’s Walden. I still have 17 days left in the year J

Long Term Photo Project: Farming through the seasons. As I scanned back through my photos, I did stop and take a few while on my way from one point to the next. I pulled in the farming lane between two fields and took a few.

Long Term Sketch Project: sketch property corner to corner… I have a few more sketches but not many, I have some photos? Does that count?

Visit 1 new state park, visit one new National Park, Ohio History Project (2 places) and take 2 hikes from field guide: Let me please refer you to my summer in 4 lines above. However, having said that, we did visit Zoar Village (this is part of the “Journey” Project with my mother. Andy and I went to see the “Tall Ships” in Cleveland (on like the hottest day of the year, my phone said we walked over 3 miles that day). I believe this goal will be carried over into 2020 with a more comprehensive plan to make it happen.

52 Journal Entries: written or sketched. I added 5 sketches more during the 3rd Quarter. This brings the total to 45. I also keep track of the weather usually 5 days a week and take some other notes throughout my notebooks and journals.

One plant in garden from seed to plate: Hmm. This leaves me a little boggled on whether or not this was accomplished. I have many plants I followed all the way through from the garden (or orchard) to the counter where they were canned. I believe that counts as completed. I will add a post for this goal before the year is over and let ya’ll decide.
