Our garden continues to produce.  On Tuesday, Sylvia harvested a few jalapeños from our four plants.  (They are more like bushes.)


This bucket was nearly full.  A layer of bell peppers filled it to the rim.  That evening she gave away six dozen jalapeños.  We still had a bit over half of the original amount.  This was from one day’s harvest–we don’t harvest everyday.  This single “haul” was more than we would reap in a normal year from four plants.  Organic fertilizer works wonders.

One plant remains and it is loaded.  We are looking forward to fresh jalapeños in November.  We’ve never done that before.

Replacement Windows

Yesterday the construction crew returned to finish the job of replacing all the windows in this house.  Only a small amount of work remained.  In about an hour they had finished their work, cleaned up the work area, took my check and hit the road.  Thanks guys!  Good job, well done.

Sylvia and I will have to put on the finishing touches.  She’ll paint and I’ll shorten and install window blinds.

  1. Sylvia’s garden was so fantastic. I’ve enjoyed hearing about it and seeing the great pictures of it !!

  2. WOW! That is some garden you had this year! So, will you replenish the fertilizer again? It certainly paid off.

    Good workers and craftsmanship is well respected and appreciated. We have been watching the neighbor work on the outside of his house for well over a month now. I swear the brick layer goes up one layer a day…IF they are lucky. I hope this job is being done for free because I would have booted them 3 weeks ago. I don’t know how they stand it.

    I am glad you found good workers at your place!

    • Our fertilizer supply has gone. What is left has been spoken for and that neighbor will be gone by year’s end. :no:

  3. Thank you so very much for giving permission. You can see your linked header under All, Daily Life, Photography and the United States. If you could say something (preferably good) about here and there, I would greatly appreciate it.

  4. Almost tempted to drive up for a bucket of hoppers for poppers; but, no, settling for the tamer bells this year. :food:

  5. I hope this finds you and yours doing well. May we display your header on our new site directory? As it is now, the site title (linked back to its home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention. In any event, we hope you will come by and see what is going on at

    • Thank you, we are doing well, Jerry. I hope you and yours are also doing well. Yes, you may display my header on your site.
