A little progress!
Funny how a week ago the upper 80's temps felt like an wonderful Arctic breeze, yet after a week my body is now getting used to it and now 89º feels hot again! Still, I'll take it - and managed to spend a few hours finally getting some work done out there. Hubby got the lawn mowed and some general cleanup of the piles of debris I have been staging around the yard, and I was able to clear a path to the garden again :)
I should really be cleaning up the center veggie garden and preparing for fall planting, but with the temps cooling off a little, I really wanted my place to relax to be ready to go at the end of the day. I can finally see my hammock again!
Dehydrating tomatoes this weekend, they will be great in hummus this winter.
I'm hoping to harvest beans and dig potatoes today - late, yes, but I wasn't very hopeful about them this year and they were kind of forgotten. After the year's awful weather and insect plagues, I'm sure the tomato digging will be interesting, I actually think I'll have the kids do that job!
Hoping to get a few hours' worth of work done, and than a date night with the family bike riding down at the oceanfront this evening.
