Come again another day. It rained sporadically yesterday morning. Rained all last night. Rained this morning until about 11 o'clock. You can turn off the faucet anytime now, Mother Nature.
Thankfully the temperature has dropped a few degrees so it doesn't feel so oppressively hot and humid. Just humid right now.
When Papa Pea came in from doing some necessary tasks outside mid-morning, he said even the ducks looked wet. It's not a problem though because all the poultry have the choice of spending these wet days inside dry pens if they wish. The geese and ducks would just as soon be out in the elements. The chickens . . . not so much.
It's nearly noon now and I've got some B-B-Q'd duck meat I've pulled out of the freezer heating up for lunch sandwiches. Still have oodles of cucumbers and cherry tomatoes so I'll made a cuke/tomato salad as a side dish.
A pan of Apple Slices is cooling on a rack on the counter, but they'll be too hot to slice before dessert for dinner tonight. Or they may be cut into for "someone's" afternoon coffee break if "someone" has anything to say about it. I don't drink coffee after my morning latte and find if I eat anything at afternoon coffee break, I'm not hungry come dinner time. And when the cook isn't hungry, the cook doesn't want to cook. At least that's the case for this cook.
Made a pot of Cheddar-Cauliflower Soup this morning with some of our cauliflower from this year's garden harvest. This particular soup is always better the second day so that will be for sometime tomorrow.
The Swiss chard in the garden is abundant enough to make another Green Pie. As soon as it dries out a bit (maybe by next June) I'll go harvest some. After putting on hip waders.
Seems I've been ignoring desk-type tasks lately so I'm bound and determined to work on them this afternoon. (Somebody hold me to it, please.)
My List (which I keep on an 8-1/2" x 11" tablet) has one side devoted to "Inside" and the other to "Outside" items. You can tell we've shifted (primarily) out-of-summer-into-fall mode because the "Inside" half of the paper is now longer than the "Outside" half. Guess that means I won't have any trouble keeping myself busy until the weather changes in such a way that being outside is a smidge bit more desirable.
Does This Count As A Garden Or Not?
