Summer flies by!

I can't believe it is already the middle of August!  I've been very busy with everyone being on holidays at work.  But here is a quick update on all fronts.

I'm not posting any pictures of my garden now.  It didn't turn out as well as I hoped but I learned a few things.  One big thing, if you use wood pellets as litter the rabbit manure needs to compost.  Sadly I didn't think about this and the decomposing wood robbed my garden of nitrogen and things are pretty stunted.  I had to fertilize and it perked a few things up but still not where I would have like them.  My lettuce, swiss chard and parsley didn't really turn out.  They bunnies are very disappointed!  Carrots are coming along okay and the basil did quite well.  So at least the bunnies got something. I'm going to try digging some potatoes this weekend.  The seedlings I started indoors also didn't do well, I really needed some grow lights set up.  Oh well, there is always next year!

Knitting news, I'm working away on too many projects!  The major one right now is a lovely baby blanket for a neighbour.  I'll post a picture of the finished project.

I made one for my brother's cat and she loves it!

Still working on making running a habit.  I'm doing better than I have in awhile but I'm still not running as often as I should.  Now that the the weather is getting cooler I'll definitely try to get out there more.

Bunnies doing well, some ongoing concerns with Peanut and Charlie but nothing too serious at the moment.  Another benefit to slightly cooler weather is that the bunnies can get some more play time outside!  Hopefully I'll have pics to post soon.

Thanks for reading!
