Last Pepper Harvest: 5-6 pounds

Picked a peck (and a half) of peppers yesterday, the last of the 2017 crop. 5-6 Pounds.  There are still lemons on the Meyer, celery, lots of Swiss chard and spinach.  Time to clean up the pepper beds and plant for winter: beets, carrots, arugula, lettuce.  Experiment with Fall-planted Beefeater tomatoes:  they have blossoms on them, but not looking too robust.  Hopefully sunshine next couple of days will give ’em a boost!   Thanks for stopping by!

Mid-December Update

Picked a few lemons — many more to come. Prepping plenty of Peppers for freezing. Olives produced fruit this year, but may not quite push it out. Grapes also produced edibles at last! Greenhouse yielding lots of Swiss chard, spinach, peppers, arugula; need to replant, but waiting for the peppers to finish on the sunny south side. 7 Beefeater tomatoes 18” high and holding their own in these short days — a first-time winter experiment.Warmest Holiday Wishes to all Family & Friends!!

This morning’s sunrise ~ a passing thought made real!

It’s great that in the Winter months at this latitude, you don’t actually have to get up so stinking early  that it hurts, to catch a sunrise.   Kristin’s photo. What a beauty.  ~ David

The rest of the story. I had just been listening to Joyce Meyer’s encouraging words: “Something good is going to happen today!”  The language and assurance of Hope.  At that moment, all I thought was, “Maybe there will be a stunning sunrise?”  And a few moments later, there it was!  ~ kristin

 

Grapes – Bandon viticulture possible

We wondered, having seen vines on the fence at the community garden in Coos Bay … so, with minimal effort…

Wow, they are so good!
