Good Sunday morning to you all. I didn't have much to say yesterday. I am a little under the weather because Mom's bronchitis has traveled to me. Not too bad--just no energy and a bit of a cough. Hopefully it won't go any further. We had rain late yesterday and overnight with a bit of hail. Thankfully, the hail barely qualified as pea sized. No damage in the gardens and I won't have to water anything. Other areas weren't so lucky as the news from the Indiana state fair showed. On the good news I have two small melons that were close enough to ripe to fall off the vine. And the one I accidentally cut a few days ago has ripened on the counter. We will try one later today. I hope it tastes as good as it smelled. I had to take the largest of the red bells this morning. They were about half red but one had developed a soft spot. I got two pint freezer bags of stewed tomatoes out of the Romas I harvested to date. The next batch I plant to make into sauce.
