Fall garden is in. We didn't do much this fall except for a few items and have gotten our first batch Collard greens and filling up 3 gallon size freezer bags.
We also have fall green beans which have bloomed and starting to make beans. We did real well last year with them and still have a few packs in the freezer too. Broccoli and Cabbage are still to small but they are in. Our fall Tomatoes did not do as well as the spring plants as 5 of the 8 plants have died off, seemed as they were growing inside out, baffling to me. We have blooms on the survivors but not Tomatoes yet.
Sunday night, temps were close to 70 degrees so we all decided to sit outside with a fire. It's been almost 6 months since we had done that and it did us all good. It's nice to sit outside at night with the tranquility of a fire and just talk with the family. No TV, No Radio, just us. It is so relaxing.
I was planning on doing an update on the "Fouled XJ" with ordering either bumpers or a roof cargo rack; however I had a bit of a technical problem. ND had spun me up at the beginning of the month and I sat down to pay some bills online. Each month I add more principle to our mortgage payment, so as I lost track of which line I was at on the page and clicked submit, I ended up making a lot more than my normal payment. Let's just say I made an extra house payment. Yep, I did it and was not happy, but when I sit back and reflect, I guess it is a good thing as I want to pay my new house off early. I wont make the same mistake next month.
I decided to change up the layout of my blog to make it easier to read. If it is better, let me know and I will keep it.
