Garden pickings

Wife picked a fairly large bucket of sweet peppers this morning and we found some hot ones in the crowd. She found the culprit and pulled it as we can't anything that hot. Also got a smaller bucket of Japanese eggplant, lavender ones this time. All the stuff pulled went to the church pantry as both freezers are completely full and there is no more room in the refrigerator.
I may go ahead and pickle a bunch of peppers as I have always liked those and we only have one jar left in the pantry.
Got a small hit of rain yesterday afternoon but it certainly hit the spot, this morning every plant was "perky." As was the !@#$% grass, that stuff grows two inches if someone spits on it.
Sisters-in-law went home to Maryland yesterday, it's a lot quieter around here. Eldest granddaughter is well and truly married as of Monday and off on their honeymoon. The whole wedding shebang was lengthy, a dinner with both families and extended families at that, then two days later a huge, orchestrated wedding, which I did not attend as I had had a sugar low before the dinner and wasn't over it yet. Had to drive to the restaurant in a blowing, huge, rainfall, doing at times less than 5 mph and at other times had to pull over to the roadside. Made me nervous as a cat in rat trap factory. I'm slowly getting over it. I've had so few sugar lows in recent years I had forgotten what was happening. Dear wife gave me several paper bags of sugar off the dining table and I tossed them down and flushed a glass of water afterward. I'm still feeling tired and have been doing a lot of naps, of which the dog loves.
It's rather nice to just have the three of us in the house again but we do love the sisters as both are very good older women than they were teens. <G>

our house is so tiny it would be a challenge to have more than one or two visit for more than a day or two.
glad you've recovered and are enjoying the naps. i did a bit of that yesterday. heat and humidity again, but after today we're getting back to more reasonable temperatures. even forecasting one night this coming week into the 40s. i'm ready for some cooler weather for sure. feel like i'm hardly getting anything done here.
good luck with the fall plantings! :) we'll be finishing up what we can get done here and hoping for a nice long fall before the frosts set in.
