Bigger than a peg leg!
After learning all that stuff out, I planted some seeds for beets and chard, both of which are supposed to grow well in the fall here. We shall see. Later I will plant some garlic and whatever else might grow in the fall.
After my time in the garden, I cleaned up and took a drive down the river road. It was pretty hazy and still a bit smoky, so not really any good views. I stopped at the Bogle Winery and picked up our wine club selections. I tasted their 50th anniversary wine, which was good. They gave me a couple of wine glasses. I haven't really had a glass of wine in quite a while, but I'll drink that good stuff when the time is right.
After I got home, I decided to try pickling some of the beans and peppers. I got a couple of mason jars and made up a brine. I didn't do the whole canning thing, where you put them in boiling water for a while, so these will be refrigerator pickles.
We learned a lot about growing vegetables this time around, and are looking forward to next year. Less tomatoes, more other stuff.
And then there's this:
My left foot is beside itself with joy, as is my right foot (beside my left foot).
