Dud Storm

The house up the end of the driveway is history. They started about 7AM this morning and by 4 it was torn down. It’s destined to be part of a pasture for cattle – much mo bette. The place was a bit of an eyesore and temporary housing for lots of immigrant fern workers.

The workers told me it would be about a week before all signs of the old place are gone.

The storms became much about nothing. We really didn’t even get much rain and no wind to mention. A couple of good lightning storms but that was it. Some areas of the state did pick up substantial rainfall but not us. The lake is full but not overfull but we still have two months of the rainy season ahead of us. September and October are classically higher likelihood of tropical storms but right now there doesn’t seem to be anything in the offing. Nancy and Joey are going on a cruise to Bermuda later this month so maybe that will stir up the Atlantic.

I’ve started transplanting a few plants that I started in July into the garden. They include a few tomatoes, a few peppers, and a pair of egg plants. If they hold up for a week to 10 days, I’ll transplant a few more with the expectation that they would all be in by the end of this month. I planted squash, cucumbers, and pole beans a month or so back and they are all doing well. I’m expecting eatable results from those by the middle of October. Starting the winter plant seeds in a day or so – cabbage, broccoli, kale etc etc etc. We had house guests this past week or I would have started those then.

Sorry this posting was delayed. Computer issues for the past few days. All fixed.
