    @Nyboy the yankees are trying. they are in the middle top to bottom and 1 left of the top<rebar kind of blocking that one> gave they a boost of fish fertilizer this afternoon.
    it has been a sad year for bell peppers, with all the rain we have received figured it should be a bumper crop...bzzzzz
    it is what it is not going to cry about it.... theres always next year.

    speaking of yankees have posted about the village idiot from new jersey dropping a tree onto the driveway, well since then he has been crossing over the property line in his truck and using our <neighbor and our> driveway making ruts, after sending registered letters to him and the property owner with no results we took care of that problem... we split the cost and had a barb wire fence put up last Wednesday....

    Are you saying he left the tree where it fell, and just drove around it?

    no after taking photos, he tried to get in my face, i dont play that game< really wanted to him to take a swing> he crumpled like a little girl after i got into his face. figured i better help him get the tree out of the driveway.
    got my saw and basically cut it to the property line and tossed the branches and rounds onto his side, and then left and thats where the tree has sat since then.
    in the lower right hand corner is where he has been crossing over instead of using his driveway on the other side of the property.

    The blight sure came out of nowhere. Your tomatoes looked so good on the last report.

    Everything's on end of summer sale now. I've been having fun shopping a bit too. :)

    My grandma gave me a weather station for Christmas a couple years ago. You're going to love it once you get it all figured out. They seem to be very accurate, although the rain prediction usually runs 12-24 hours out ahead of time. Mine had 3 channels/remote sensors with it. I use them for everything! Keep one in the sunroom to make sure my houseplants and seedlings don't freeze in the winter overnight and use them also when hanging deer to make sure the temps are staying cold enough to keep.

    I saw a picnic table marked down at Tractor Supply today. Was so bummed I didn't have the truck with me to get it home. Hopefully it will still be there tomorrow!
