My Week and HGP Check-In

I have been busy working in the yard this week.  The front porch is looking much better.  I got rid of the dead flowers and repotted some others.  Without spending any money the plants look refreshed. 

I also started on the fall garden.  That is a simple way of saying I spent three days hauling organic hummus, peat moss, horse manure and compost to revive a raised bed.  I planted yellow squash, cucumbers, zucchini, and sunflowers in it yesterday.  Those should sprout in a week or two.  I am looking forward to some fresh veggies by Halloween.  I also replanted the cauliflower, broccoli, brussel sprout, and cabbage seeds.  The new sprouts look much better than the first ones.

I found time to bake some breads.   I made hamburger buns and also two loaves of French bread.  The French bread was for French dip sandwiches. 

I am at the end of week one of the Holiday Grand Plan.  I did quite well.  The lists are started.  The porch is clean, and I have already received the Operation Christmas Child materials.  A couple of things are left undone right now.  I still have not started on my Christmas cards in spite of putting it at the top of my list every day.  We also did not take our Christmas card photo.  We got rain almost every afternoon this week.  It did not rain yesterday, but we had company.  Plus I was just too tired.  Hopefully the first of next week will be better.

Please share your hamburger bread recipe - they look good. I have done autumn planting today - just flowers though. My tomatoes that I grew got blight so had to put them in the bin :o( The herbs have done well this year. It was such a wet summer season that a lot of crops failed for people, I'm glad I didn't grow any other veg!
