My tomatoes sound like yours some a bit bigger. They were put in late and since we are having a warmer than usual Fall they are hanging in there. I can't eat them any more so I don't care, giving them to the family that was staying with me last year.

Been getting more paying work so finally got the other half of property taxes paid. Hopefully get some more things I need like chicken wire for the beds and beneficial bugs paid for.

Can see my house instead of the ugly trailer also when he moved it the tip out ran into the sick a more stump and fell off it is still  on the hill.

Don things are going slowly but still progressing thanks to friends. I am soooooo happy as Dale came Friday with his front loader and dragged the ugly trailer down to the corral. WooooooHoooooo! I'm sooooo happy I now have a better view and more space to plant!!!!

Seems to have been a problem in contacting. Also it goes back to  old email address, never used now.

I was missing contact with Vicky, How are you doing? What about any of the people in group in flood and forest fire areas?

Don I would not have been able to have picked my veggies to have for meal where the ground wasps were. They moved along to another property.

I prefer finding lots of earthworms and putting them in soft screened soil I have been doing and putting back into newer garden for blueberry bushes. Now to to rake more pine needles up and  put around blueberry bushes.

   I am still getting a few " a little bigger than a golf ball" size tomatoes, and my Clemson spineless okra is going to seed.  I planted some collard greens, and hairy vetch along with my volunteer buck wheat.  I counted 21 bumble bees on my still blooming asters.  I hope they get enough nectar to last all winter.  

     Vicky, you have really shaped that place up!  

     Nancy, I am doing an organic garden, so if they don't sting me (or my loved ones), I let them live.

Well I spent some of the afternoon outside, pulling dead plants and weeds. A wasp was on my rubber garden glove, shook it off. Put grass clippings in ditch where I will put blueberry bushes.

One piece of lawn cannot cut, either it is baby bunny or cottontail.

More wasp, this time inside shed so last thing to do before in for the night, spray.

But for now liquid break. It is clouded over since I have been out.

Tomorrow sift soil dug up and put in ditch.

Oh well got to do as much can before frost or whatever comes.

  Still hopeful I hung the sign "Vegetable Patch" long ago.

Looks better no weeds or junk now just have to get off my buns and build caged below and above raised beds and plant. New moon is Sunday so plant your above ground growers.

Comment by Vicky Myers on September 8, 2015 at 2:03pm
Also have green toms on plant and plant trying to escape the cage.

I am hoping my veggies will have enough to be harvested before frost comes. Called duct and furnace cleaner and still have not heard back on if coming. There is a bag or something in one of the duct pipes. It has been there I guess before I bought house. So previous cleaner did not do his job.

Hopefully get out cut lawn and put clippings off to side where going to plant  my 3 blueberry bushes. Have to separate soil from soil and weeds and stones.

See how I am after my 3pm today. One day lost this week due to long weekend. Next is Canadian Thanksgiving next month.

Dale cut the oats down out front and scraped weeds and dead grass layer off the veg garden area then ran the disc thru it. Zuc producing got 5 so far probably more out there. Got 2more lemon cukes off that poor bug eaten plant. More strawberries to pick also got 8 more planter boxes 75% off so $4.99 each and 2 big square ones last night same price. The only thing I like about Fall is garden clearance sales. Getting SAD already thinking about cold and my cold toes inside my house this morning. Still paying on electric bill from last winter so not cold rnough yet to turn on the heat.
