    i tell ya that was the nastest corn beef to come out of the crock pot, it was all fat but the potatoes ,carrots and cabbage was delicious....
    took today off have had insomnia the last 2 nights about 4 hours total and had a little stomch bug to boot, was in no shape to drive to work. no way was i going to try a nap that would really screw me up tonight.
    decided to put what little energy i had to use....
    pulled the watermelons up, since i found 4 split.. so did the gallager and tossed them.

    Jalapenos are going nuts. I have 4 of these guys producing

    And the perpetual spinach has been a blessing :)

    But my scotch bonnet has been having a rough time. Squirrel and hail devastated this guy early on, and he's been limping along.

    Pumpkins have been a good experiment, but I gotta figure out a better system next year. I'm planning on creating more raised beds via a tiered garden system in the back, but that'll be some $$$

    One scotch bonnet would probably last me a lifetime anyway! What do you do with yours?

    today was almost a normal day for me,was able to get 7 hours of sleep last night.heck i slept like a baby while away do i need to get one of those hotel mattress sets??
    the dw went out and picked tomatoes this morning and made another batch of salsa, the official count now is 15 melons i missed the one that was in the hammock.

    while watering the beds and what not picked another bucket of tomatoes and a couple bell peppers. for a few people down at work.
    DSC_0068.JPG
    boy all the rain sure has messed up the tomatoes..spent more time slinging them than putting them in the bucket.....:he oh thats right thats why they call it gardening. and we are not in control of the weather..:barnie going to pull a few tomato plants this weekend, they are just not putting out or rotting on the vines.
    thinking that being mid august that the main garden is slowly showing signs of discontent on producing beautiful produce...all good thing must come to an end sooner or later.
