yeah often that is correct, it was just so much cooler than the ksl app on my phone had predicted it would be so it was shocking to be that far off.

Got dumpster of tree trimming done so that is all I could fit for this week. Next week, while Jeff is in recovery mode, I'll fill the dumpster with another load and still will need several more weeks before its all done. Luckily we never fill our dumpster with normal garbage so using that left over space for my trimmings works nicely.

Man that some temps for this time of year. I forget about those low numbers near Sept. I planted grapes here last spring and so far ok. Half my Elderberries didn't make it but 4 plants should be enough for some wine in a few years. My lettuce, Rudabackers and Bok Choi came up, but some bug seems to like them better.

When you say dumpster are you talking about your trash can? If you have a dumpster full of tree trimmings that seems like a lotUnsure. This is what I think about when I hear the word dumpster:

What kind of grapes did you plant? When I first planted my grape vine, it took several years before I started getting grapes. Elderberries, I've heard that make great wineCool.

LOL, I thought so because I've never noticed a dumpster at your place but I thought maybe there was a community dumpster nearby.

Last 2 nights we been down into the upper 40s.

Found some more watermelons have set fruit - now we just cant have early frosts. If we even get close in the forecasts we'll be covering a lot of plants with the frost cloths.

Hasn't been that cold here, only in the low 60's. Nice going on the watermelons, now they will have to grow fastWink.
I haven't taken any recent pics of my whole garden, so here they are. I took pics of everything, except for the carrots, this time and I'll label each one. The pic of box #1 shows yellow squash and carrots, mixed in together. Same with the pic of the zucchini(Z), they are mixed with the buttercup(BC) plants. I won't do that again next year, mix BC and Z. In the pic of box #2, you can see the broom sticking up from the end of the box, that gives you an idea of just how much has grown out of the boxCrazy.

Wow some of your stuff has really taken off. Our watermelons just don't seem to be growing all that fast so not sure we'll even get any of them this year, but it is that ring's first year, next year should do even better.


Today we picked another cuke, several squash and 2 tomatoes. Jeff reseeded more lettuce and radishes, and round 2 of our peas-in-pots are now 1-2 inches up so doing well.


Got the call from the hospital about Jeff's surgery Monday, we have to be there by 6AM, so looks like this time we should be first in line - fingers crossed...


Your canned salmon was pretty tasty, we just finished it today. Thanks.

Now I have to load some new software (genealogy) on my computer now, my old software is no longer supported, but luckily, the new stuff with convert my files over 'easily' (or so their advertisement says - LOL) here goes....

We haven't planted radishes in years, how many rounds of them can you grow per year? Maybe we will give them a try next year.
Wow 6am, that is early, that will likely put him in first place for sure. Best wishes/prayers.
Glad you liked the salmon, it is packed in there pretty tight but after flaking it up, it's not too bad.
Picked 21 green beans today, I was really surprised because some of them were pretty big, so I must have missed them before. In just the right light you can see stuff that you would otherwise miss.
They are doing the big reveal today on the Extreme Home Makeover house. Starts at 4 pm, so we are heading over there about 3:30. I doubt they will let us see the inside but it should be pretty cool to see the family get their new home. Amazing they built it all in one week, including a shed and a garden plus solar panels on the roof. Here is a pic from a few days ago, before they got the lawn in. Not the best pic because they would not let us get too close but hopefully we will get more pics later today.

Probably for you, we think at least 4 would be probable.

We pack our salmon in tight like you did so it was no problem at all.


Picked our first green bean, but I think it really wasn't ready, it even tasted green if that makes sense. Crazy


Watch KSL news hoping to see the reveal on the news tonight but they really didn't show much said HGTV was going to show it on their next season.... but from your picture we got a pretty good idea about it. I'm sure we'll get to see it next time we stop by your place.


Well, think we've pretty much got everything we wanted to get done before his surgery done a day early so now we just have to wait for Monday. Thanks for the best wishes/prayers. Once again he's going to Ogden Regional.

Wow, that would be a lot, we usually get tired of radishes after the first picking but it has been so long, maybe we could plant three different types for three plantings, just the break it up. We have done the normal red and white type but never had much luck with the white variety. Is there a type that isn't hot?
Here are a few more pics from the EMO house.

We only do small batch at a time and just red and white ones. They are nice touch sliced into a salad.

That's a cute house, really nice carport - guess this house actually faces the other street and not your street, right? still amazes me.

Yes, it faces East, the first pic is one of guys on that TV show, Modern Family, the second pic is the side view, the third pic is of the little garden they planted on the side of the house, the forth pic in a straight on pic of the front of the House.
Hope Jeff's operation was a success.

Really cute house that's for sure. We've never watched any episodes of Modern Family so not sure who the guy is, but still cool that he'd want to be a part of all this. We look forward to seeing the Reveal on HGTV so we can see inside - the paper said it should air in early 2020.


Surgery took longer than they had planned, we're not sure why. But his doc said his knee was so bad he doesn't know how he was even walking with it. So it is so nice that that's now in our past. On to physical therapy. Yeehah!

I believe he is the new host on the show. Wow, it's not coming out until 2020, guess we have a while to wait then.
Picked more green beans today, got 44 this time, they are really coming on now.
Glad to hear Jeff made it through the surgery ok, even if it took longer.
