Sunday Morning


We’re starting to wind up late summer here in central Minnesota.  There was a nice cool breeze when I was out walking this morning and it stayed around longer as the morning progressed.  It’s gone for now but it will return late this afternoon when evening arrives.  Mother Nature is signaling to me the season that will soon arrive.

The garden is starting to wind up as well.  Carrots are all done as are the pumpkins.  I haven’t quite got the hang of growing pumpkins but I’ve got some ideas to try next year.  The green beans and cucumbers are still producing but you can tell that their vines are beginning to give out.  The potatoes will soon be ready for digging up out of the ground and I really don’t know if I’ll ever get any broccoli or not this year.  That’s something else to look into for next year.

I spent quite a while deadheading marigolds after I was done with the garden.  I managed to find one paper sack and I’ve made some mental notes to find a couple more.  I’ll deadhead the flowers and place the dead blooms in paper sacks so I’ve got some seeds for next season.  My fingers smell like marigold oil right now.  I’ll have to get all cleaned up and scrub my fingers quite a bit to get rid of that smell.

Next season.  It’s strange that I’m even contemplating a “next season” right now.  Where has this one gone to?

I think this is the part where you are to write something clever and witty about yourself. I’m solidly locked in middle age and content with myself. I love to travel to see and experience new things, new foods and new drink. I also like to cook and bake mainly because I like to eat. And I found out that I’m pretty good at both. I'm not a professional blogger nor do I want to be. I'll leave that to others while I'll kick back and post whatever suddenly pops into my brain. I'm more spontaneous anyway. And the rest we’ll just kinda sorta figure out as we go along. Feel free to leave comments or even just to say "Hello". Find me at: Find me on Instagram at: ghosttrider77
