Yes and I love potatoes so I eat them anyway sometimes then something hurts somewhere on my body. Got more surprises when I got home from being gone since Sat night. Had to wait for the high winds to stop so I could leave. The tall tree stump is gone and a big hole is there now. More dirt leveled in places, the  tip out from the trailer moved over by the night light and area where trailer was is clean and smooth.

You have done a lot Vicky. Do you have trouble with eggplant, potatoes and peppers also? They are of the nightshade family. I cannot eat any of these ever, and tomatoes too.

My veggie garden almost finished, peas only veggies and maybe zucchini if bunny does not eat it up.

Any problem with moles or voles where you are?

I should have never planted the herbs right next to the house. Now that the trailer is gone I can spread out the garden and put in a paver patio next to the house.

Still getting a few strawberries, would have been getting more but they sent out a bunch of runners before I realized it.

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.
