Back up and Running

October 8th, 2018

My computer died two weeks ago, which prompted the ordering of a new one. That took 10 days or so to arrive, which meant I was working with a skeleton crew for a few weeks. My new computer arrived last Friday and Mr Chiots got it all set up and running. I’m once again able to download photos and do all my work. Here’s a look at what happened in my garden over the weekend.

With temperatures hitting the mid-thirties on some evenings, it’s time to clear all the peppers and tomatoes. The lettuces and fall brassicas are doing great, it will be a race to see if my fall broccoli head up or not. Fall crops are always a gamble, they usually do well, but some years winter comes extra early and there is not much of a harvest.

How’s your garden coming along?

Reading & Watching

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
