As I sit here at my PC I have my own little zoo right outside the window. There are blue jays, nuthatches, finches, sparrows, and chickadees at the bird feeder and four rabbits and Towhees underneath enjoying all the seed dropped from above. Nailed to the willow tree a few feet from the bird feeder, is a feeder for the squirrels I made from a gallon milk jug. I thought if I had a feeder just for these little guys, they would leave the bird feeders alone, and by golly, my plan has worked. Right now I can see just the tail of the smallest squirrel hanging out of the opening of the squirrel feeder, as he enjoys his breakfast from inside.
The sun has just reached the Camellia bush outside the den window, and the topsides of the leaves being kissed by the early morning sun, look as though they have been given a covering of gold leaf.
What a shame I have to work today, as I would rather spend my time outdoors playing in the garden. Soon it is going to be too cold for outdoor activities so I am spending all my free time getting the yard in shape. I spent three weekends cleaning out the carport as it was a 'catchall' for everything we were not using or brought home from yard sales etc. There was room just for our small Honda and I wanted both our cars to fit in there. I am sure there are some of you out there with the same problem, due to all my efforts we now have a clean junk free carport. Yesterday as I arrived home from Costco, with a car full of groceries etc. It was a pleasure to drive under the shelter of carport out of the rain to unload the car. Ahhhh! life is good.
Time has run out for blogging so I must get ready for my day of work, which is really a pleasure now I have a new job as a caregiver, There are many rewards, each and every day, as I visit my clients.
green tomatoes can be fried - in the meantime, i've made about 20 kilos worth of tomato sauce, and have given some away.
i wish we had some rain here too - but it wont come for at least amonth from now...
KEEWEE, I ENJOYED THIS POST SO VERY MUCH. IT DOES SOUND LIKE YOU HAVE BEEN VERY BUSY THE LAST FEW WEEKS. AND JUST IMAGINE WHAT YOUR GARDEN WILL PRODUCE DURING THE SEASON NEXT YEAR. EXPERIENCE IS SUCH A WONDERFUL TEACHER.
Having the same trouble with our tom's loads on but no sun to ripen them
Kinda having the same problems here. Been blogging about some of it. Hydrdrangea season is here and that is first but it is tough to ignore some of the colors in the trees and the 45 degree mornings but fall is my favorite season out here and I am really looking forward to it.
I too have many green tomatoes.. but sure enough.. they are slowly turning red. Much of my garden is done for the season.. but the tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers are still going strong.
Love all your little critters. :-)
