Well I certainly learned something last night, some varieties of okra pods when left to grow to a seemingly respectable size become fibrous and woody. After biting into one that I had cooked, and then subsequently baked with rice and other vegetables, I had to extract all of the pods from the casserole dish. Lessons learned.
WLF is a little wild and wooly, and a bit sad if I must admit, at the moment. The tomato and burpless cucumber plants are reaching their end, though the indeterminate tomato varieties may have one more burst of flowers if the temperature doesn’t get much more than 90°F. The pickling cucumber plants have yellowed slightly, perhaps from too much fertilizer. Most of the squash/zucchini plants have been attacked by pests, but I have another round sprouting in pots which I will transplant very soon.
There is perhaps still time for one more turn of quick-producing vegetables, such as radish, zucchini, squash, and okra, as long as they are planted where the sun will continue to shine. I have to remind myself which parts of WLF will no longer receive sufficient sunlight as the sun starts lowering its arc in the sky over the next handful of months. Other than that, it will be time for WLF renovations and improvements getting it ready for 2022. 😮
I was hoping the reduction in temperature and humidity yesterday would convince me to get outside (anywhere) to exercise, but it did not. ☹️ Instead, with the knowledge that there is a local contestant in season 2 of “Holey Moley” I started binge watching that.
Today is my penultimate day at “XYZ Corp”. Yesterday another of my coworkers announced his exit as well. It’s not that “XYZ Corp, Mark II” is a bad company, perhaps the opposite?, it’s that it’s not a good fit for some of us who were acquired.
Supposedly there is a SLUT (Slow, Lazy, Urban, Thursday) revival hash tonight, but I’ve not seen concrete information about its start. I may be interested, I may not be, we shall see.
Hope you are happy and remaining healthy.
