It’s the weekend!! And I have made good on my promise to myself to sit around and do nothing…except instead I did tons of yard work.
Kate and I are having dinner guests tomorrow, so we cleaned the whole place (actually Kate did most of it, she’s a trooper!).The yard got mowed, and raked, and watered.
While we were moving stuff around, I got a bunch more tomatoes, we’ve got beans growing, a couple of squashes (amazing!) and the zucchinis look as if they’re about to flower. I planted some more pumpkins just to see if I can beat the frost. We’ll see!
Speaking of moving things around, I decided that i was going to finally reorganize my shed because summer is winding down and I’ll need better space arrangments in my shed than I had last winter. But of course, no good deed goes unpunished. Wasps! I was just out of wasp doom spray too. (This is my one single vice in terms of the chemicals I work with in my home). Wasps need to be kept in check. Raid has something for that. I’ll tell you what though, the stuff in that can is concentrated awfulness. With new foaming action. Ugh. Had to be done.
On a lighter note, I opened up a 3 year old bottle from my stability study on 2008 Falling Stone Winery Blueberry wine! Look at the legs on it! The stuff tastes like a liqueur. I really should put more of my bottles away for aging, but oh man, is it nice to have a stash of inexpensively acquired wine in the house in the wintertime.
