Once again I missed the EAV Farmers Market, at least I have an excuse this time, I was busy. 😏 One of the things I did last night was make refrigerator pickles. 🤯 I have learned a few lessons, like understanding why some cucumbers are labeled as “pickling” because the cucumbers I cut up last night are not, and were very seedy. I guess I will learn if it really makes a difference in a week or so when the pickles are ready to be eaten.

My dinner last night was a WLF fry up, consisting of leftovers from the dinner I made for Betsy to which I added the last of my Contender bush beans. 😋

I spent a good amount of time “channel” surfing last night. It appears that I am on a Tony Shalhoub kick as I am (finally) back watching “The Marvelous Mrs Maisel” on Amazon Prime (I am done with the first two seasons), as well as rewatching “Monk” on Peacock. I also watched the first episode of “Clarkson’s Farm” on Amazon Prime; it’s a multi-episode somewhat documentary of what happens when Clarkson, best known for “Top Gear”, attempts to take over the production of his 1000-acre farm.

At 7:45am I have already been out choring in WLF, which is only about one thousand acres smaller than Clarkson’s. I’m learning that June is really maintenance time — watering, fertilizing, pruning, and occasionally harvesting. I was bummed to see two more of the ripe tomatoes suffered a different type of rot. 😢 Next year I will experiment with different planting methods to see if I can enjoy larger versions of the fruits of my labor more often. I already know that obtaining more light through limb removal would help, as well as planting into larger grow bags, or raised beds. Yesterday one of the squash plants I planted directly into the ground gave up the ghost; it appeared that it succumbed to either a disease or vine borers as its stem was toast.

As I mentioned yesterday, kudos to the DMV (as well as the USPS — thanks Lurker) for delivering my tag renewal decal in less than a week since I paid online. I am happy to get that chore done for another year.

I’m looking forward to an eventful weekend, spending as much of it outdoors in beautiful weather as possible.

I hope that you all have a wonderful and healthy weekend.

    What time are you planning to get to NC?
    We need to start getting ready, we’ve done nothing.
    Tent camping for us should be interesting!
    Hopefully our air mattresses still hold air.

    The fence guys are up and at it again. We both realized that no one thought about calling 811 (before you dig). I actually put in the ticket last night, but they don’t guarantee service before midnight Tuesday. As they have tried to tell me my lines are overhead before (they arent) I’ll be calling Ga Power later today.

    Having breakfast at the IHOP which just happens to be next to the toyota dealer!
