In one last trip to get a few more items for the homecoming attire, we stopped and picked up 10# of organic beef, and one (almost) 12 lb. organic turkey. That pretty much emptied the pocket book.
Hubby and I enjoyed a picnic in the park after his second doctor appointment, and was due to return to work today, so we played hookie all weekend.
...which meant I did not go into the garden one iota.
And this happened.
I told Hubby I was heading out to pick tomatoes and would be back in before the Bengals started playing the second quarter.
Ha ha ha ha, he he he he he, ho ho ho....
It took 4 trips to get it all inside. I brought in a large basket of green peppers, which I expected and needed.
I also brought in 70.11# of tomatoes. That brings our grand tally to 458.85# this year. That doesn't include the grape tomatoes that I haven't picked yet either. Some plants are pretty much done, but there are a few too many that are too stubborn to die.
We've made it through another homecoming weekend, so things should return to "normal" around here. The outdoor work calls. Hubby is at work. No more playing hookie for a while. Although I may steal an hour and head off on a motorcycle ride tonight. I'd like to deliver a few tomatoes.
I'm gonna need more canning jars.
It got cold last night, but not cold enough to frost. It's a chilly 41°F out this morning.
