Beautiful fall day coming on. A high of 60° forecast with sun. Overnight we had our lowest temp so far this fall . . . 43° . . . cool enough to start bringing cold air into the root cellar.
Our good neighbor's pepper plants, for some reason, didn't produce much this year while ours have been abundant so we've been sending bags full over to them. Don't know how long ours will keep producing. I'm not going to cover them with a cold frame because 1) the plants are taller than any cold frame we have, and 2) I have already processed as many as we need. I'm thinking the plants will be slowing way down now because of lack of heat during the day and the cool, cool air at night.
I had all but one last load of laundry out on the line early this morning. Gotta admit my fingers got a little nippy, but that comes with the territory this time of year.
Papa Pea and I are meeting in the back wood working area this morning at 10 to do some chain sawing, splitting and stacking of wood. We started on that task this past Saturday and even though one thinks one is in good shape, muscles that apparently haven't been recently used were felt.
The time just hasn't been available for me to keep up with all the blogs you good people write, and I feel badly about that. Catching up and having the time to comment is always my intention and may well happen . . . most likely after this last month of outside work comes to an end.
Here's hoping you all have a good, good week!
