Before I get to the big news of this big day, I must share the results of cleaning out the gardens yesterday. Here we have the tubers from the sweet potato vines that were loved by both bugs and me. I read that there would be sweet potatoes at the end of the growing season, but I wonder if these are edible? Not that many large ones were produced, but the fact that there were ANY is just amazing to me. Let me know if you have eaten yours, eh?
We have a very long growing season here and just recently got enough rain to energize the veggie bed to produce a large amount of tomatoes and green peppers. Then we got two nights of freezing temps and all were lost before they ripened. EXCEPT this big beauty. Not one blemish, or bug bite or bruise or anything. So it's November and I finally got an acceptable sized pepper.
OK. Now onto the big news of the day. MY SISTER IS GETTING INTERNET INSTALLED TODAY.
She has been without cable or internet and has had to live without since September. Imagine this. It has been a real struggle for ME. I can't send her links or share stuff, and have only SMS's to communicate with her during the day. And no TV at all since she moved. meaning we cannot discuss House or Glee and arghhhhh, this is just so difficult.
Imagine not being able to look up something on the internet, the minute you need to. How does one do it? Eeek! Yes, she can go online at work, during lunch or before work, but that is NOT enough, so we will be so happy to see each other online tonight, if all goes well.
Chumley is being neutered today!
