Weekend of Work

We had a non stop work around the yard this weekend and Tyler had a spend the night Saturday so we got very little sleep. We are not use to sleeping with a 4 year old super hero, he is Spiderman these days, already wore out his Halloween costume so it's back to the store for a new one. Rambo man said as he left today he needed to get back to work so he could get some rest!

I spent most of my time in the garden doing clean up and getting the rest of the fall plants in. We now have, zucchini, summer squash, broccoli, egg plant, cabbage, spinach, lettuce, cucumbers, Okra (will never end), tomatoes, sweet potato's, and bell peppers. We have had such hot weather and no rain for so many weeks that some things are looking a little puny, but today we are getting some really good rain and more for the next few days so maybe things will perk up and get going again. It is 66 degrees tonight and pouring down rain, YAAAA bring on the fall!!

I decided to bring in some of the green tomatoes for fried green tomatoes, not sure if it will work to batter and freeze them but I figured it is worth a try, stupid squirrels keep taking them before they can get ripe. We all love fried green tomatoes, it would be pretty cool to have some during the winter when we are watching the football playoffs! That's my project for Monday to deal with the tomatoes and of course okra that never stops. We want to start getting the new beds for next year going soon but we need to get caught back up on all the never ending odds and ends that keep poping up
