First peppers from the greenhouse.... banana, hot wax and jalapeno. It is now bursting at the seams and I have to pick and dry before they all go to waste.
For dinner I stuffed the peppers with a moose burger bread crumb cheese mixture. The banana pepper was perfect and the others too hot. The beans, etc. were not from my garden.
Made fruity pineapple coconut milk rum drinks to enjoy in the sun and then remembered why I don't like such sugary stuff! :)
Left dinner in the oven for dad and raced off to soccer. Emily really loves playing. Wish she would have had a better coach and more fun group of girls for her first time, but she loves it enough that she wants to try more sports. So glad nothing is holding her back anymore.
My beds were starting to fill out. Now this one is bursting!
Me watering at 10:40 pm. You will often find me out there at midnight. I love that it's light all night long. I really miss that in the winter months.
Mulching (newspaper then wood chips) is such a long tedious process, but has been worth it. I had to pull very few weeds this summer saving me a lot of time.
These flowers are several feet tall now... never ceases to amaze me.
Forest fires nearby blew horrible smoke in to town. You can't even see down into the valley.
There the pool sits unfilled. This is the latest we've ever been and it's the hottest summer we've had. I wish things were clicking better this summer, but as always it seems there is always something off.
I cleaned until 4:00 am when I could no longer stand. At 7:00 am Homer helped me with the last hour of cleaning and then he started hauling the water while I went back to bed.
He got this far the first Sunday and then finished it the second Sunday. He put in a total of 34,000 gallons of water. So much has evaporated with the hot summer and we should have replenished.
