Harvest Monday; August 3, 2015

Another late post, I know. My excuse? Woke up in Charleston, SC. Had to go there for work so I drove down Sunday because I had to be on the jobsite at 5:30ish this morning.  Then  I proceeded to leave Charleston, drive 100 miles, get a call from the hotel telling me I left my tablet there. Another 200 miles out of my way. Yipee. But all is good as I made it back home this evening. Charleston is my wife's favorite city, me not so much. Think its hot where I live? 90 degrees by 10:00 this morning. No thank you.

Another decent week in the garden. Eggplants are really coming around so got to find something to do with them. That and tomatoes are still there. Picked a little over 40 lbs. this week and canned all of it. Pizza, Pasta sauces and more salsa.

The rest of the garden is slowly wearing down as we still are getting really hot weather every day. That and the occasional thunderstorm dumping on us. I need to get out there and clean up the beds that have been sitting idle and start fall plantings. A lot of work to do. 

Pickings from Friday afternoon. 

Eggplants looking good.

Lots of blooms on the squash but no real production this year. Been picking off eggs like crazy but those darn bugs are back this year.

Finally got a chance Saturday to hit the links this year in prep for our upcoming trip to the mountains. My boys got me a new driver for Father's Day so I got the chance to try it out. Played better than I thought it would. 

Well that's it for me today. Check out Daphne's Dandelions for all Harvest Mondays.

  1. I hate days like that. I have friends that love to drive, but I'm not one of them. Stuck in a car for hundreds of miles is my idea of hell.
