November 21, 2013


Been busy with kids and work. Yay I have full time work (more than 50% of U.S. doesn’t right now)! October was nice here in the South, a couple of ‘heatwaves’ hit and caused my tomatoes and jalapenos to flower and grow a bunch. Stupid plants. I got the last of each yesterday. Since the […]
