Well, a chilly start to the day - it was in the 40's on my drive into work today and I (gasp!!) put the heat on in the car! It is so sunny and just lovely out.
Yesterday I received an e-mail mid-day letting us know that our office will be closed tomorrow as a thank you for a strong end to our fiscal year! Isn't that just the best? Bobby (CEO) told me it was just so beautiful driving in yesterday that he thought we should all have a long weekend for the last one of summer.
And the weekend promises to be JUST like summer - temps are forecast to be in the upper 80's with plenty of sun. Dee and I are going to meet up at a craft fair that is being held at Pennypacker Mills which (hopefully) will be fun. I don't think I've ever been there, so am looking forward to seeing the place. I'm sure there will be coffee and knitting too😊
Usually I don't participate in Three on Thursday, but yesterday when I got home, Fletch and I were sitting on the patio with our beverages and I looked out at the garden and saw three things to share with you!
1. Not the best picture (it was sunny and shadowy), but this is the Fall planting of sugar snap peas beginning to climb the trellis. Fletch thinks they will start blooming by the time we return from vacation. YAY (The mess behind the trellis is the volunteer raised bed box with tomato plants, cantaloupe vines, etc.)
2. This is the Fall planting of spinach and lettuce (a big mix of things). Fletch has built a cold frame cover for this raised bed box. In past years we've been able to pick greens at Christmas!
3. 🍅Tomatoes. Still. I picked the bowl on the left yesterday. The bowl on the right was picked two days prior (and had more in it, but we've consumed a bunch). These are so sweet and so tasty and they just keep on coming! Our large tomatoes have been slow to develop and slow to ripen, but when they do they sure are good! I'm also planning to use a few for Fried Green Tomatoes.
Linking up with Carole and others for Three on Thursday (or Friday in my case!). Bring on the weekend!!
