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
