The Past Week

This week was a short one for me at work. Hallelujah!

On the 4th, we headed out to Asheville to catch a baseball game and fireworks. We ate hot dogs and the Asheville Tourists won the game. It was actually nice to go watch some baseball.

I used to be a huge Dodgers fan when I lived in L.A. I used to go all the time and root for them. Then I moved to Miami and I wasn't able to go see a baseball game because the Marlins were not in existence. Then they changed the rules and divisions and baseball because sucky. Oh well.

Anyhow, it was cool and I never tire of fireworks because they are so spectacular.

On Friday, we went to Asheville to catch "The Amazing Spiderman" in 3D. I was iffy about it since I really liked the old Spiderman movies. But it was actually quite good.

The rest of the weekend was uneventful. We have been harvesting a zillion veggies from the garden. So much so that we have been giving so many of them away to friends. I did, however, decide to freeze some zucchini and squash for future use.

I have had to find recipes that require a lot of veggies so I can use them up. I will have a post with two recipes I have used coming up. I also harvested tons of basil for a fresh pesto sauce. Yummo!

The exciting part is that we have corn coming in. We also have sugar baby watermelons and the tomatoes are slowly ripening. I suspect though that the unbearable heat we have had here lately is affecting the garden. I am seeing some sun burn on the tomato plants. The lettuce couldn't hold up in the heat and sun.

I am hoping it does not affect the corn but who knows. I can only hope the heat wave breaks and it goes back to cooler temps and the garden doesn't suffer too much.

Aside from that nothing much going on around here. It's back to work on Monday. Boo.


  1. growin your own watermelons? oh my, i cannot imagine how good, and sweet those are gonna taste!!!!

  2. The corn around here was shoulder high by the fourth of July - way past knee high!
