Stand down, Clem

Well, the weather man was right. It has really cooled off and it is a beautiful day.

The boys were here this morning and after the dew dried we went out back and built a fire. Part of the purpose was to get them to help pick up limbs, but that didn’t last too long.


Matilda came too but she was really more interested in taking sticks out of the fire. When she realized that we weren’t going to let her play with the sticks, she got bored and left.

Well, on to matters of growing concern.

The few cabbage plants that we put out are coming along quite nicely.


We have some pretty good looking turnips.

And, the string beans have been producing well. Next week, when our Thanksgiving guests show up, maybe we can have some home grown vegetables.

I’m sure that will make Clem happy.
