Sunny today. Yesterday was quite gloomy. We got a little bit of rain over the day--a very little bit. Shortly I will collect tomatoes and, perhaps some peppers. High winds yesterday pushed a couple of branches one of the pepper plants down but, thankfully, did not break them. I can tie them back up on the stake and they should be fine. I really don't want to collect the whole lot of small peppers just yet. Rather they get a bit bigger first. Also on the agenda: cutting some of the spearmint for drying. Next week should be interesting--another span of 90F temps for at least the first four days. The first small batch of stewed tomatoes yielded 1 3/4 pounds for the freezer. But that should go up rapidly. I see several large sauce tomatoes ripening and the season of getting more slicing and cherry tomatoes than we can eat has definitely arrived.
Update: seven trays of spearmint in the dryer. Also saw four Super Sauce tomatoes nearly ready to pick.
Another example of Walmart's mastery of semantic legerdemain. How a "Buy America" plan can result if fewer and worse paid jobs.
