It seems like only a few weeks ago I was waiting for it to be warm enough to go camping. Now I’m waiting for it to be cool enough again!
In the meantime, I’m enjoying low-key summer puttering with flowers and a few veggies.
Something wiped out my tomatoes. I didn’t plant resistant varieties and they didn’t fare well. So I’m planting more tomorrow. I sure am glad we have such a long growing season!
Also I had read that bell peppers will occasionally have a genetic flashback and produce hot peppers. What are the odds of both of my container peppers doing the same thing? They are too fiery to eat, so I’m planning to dehydrate some tomorrow for sparing use in dishes that need a little added kick.
I also want to get a fall vegetable garden going soon. I sure do miss my home-grown lettuce! It had all bolted when we got back from our trip to Modoc.
