Apples to pick

It is a dreary-looking day with spits and starts of misty rain. I was mostly out window shopping for a birthday gift but I was happy to catch my brother in his shop. We had a great chat and solved most of the world’s problems 😉 He has a son in Iraq so that is something that the family remembers day-to-day.

Back home, I decided to pick some more of my apples. The tree is about 30 years old and has three varieties of green apples–sour, moderately sour and very sour. Well, perhaps not quite that bad. These latest pickings are acutally edible and should make a nice pie.

My carrots and greens are happy with the weather. Same for the broccoli. I finally pulled my pepper plants (all 3 that were left) so I have room for more carrots. I’m thinking that I’ll do a couple of other root plants, maybe parsnips and beets. I also need to transplant the horseradish to a larger pot.

I pulled bunches of weeds and a tree growing where it shouldn’t be and almost filled the recycle bin. Since it had been raining and the ground was still wet-ish, the pulling wasn’t too difficult.

It has started to rain a little harder now although we are not expecting much rain total. Thoughts on dinner include soup (I have cooked chicken from last night), chicken with noodles/rice and I have a nice winter squash to cook.

Weekends are now the only time that I can see my garden. It is dark when I leave the house for work and dark when I get home. Must be day-light savings time. Not sure whose is getting the daylight.

My son in Japan sent me a couple of photos of watermelon of the usual type. Funny and expensive. $500.
