Well, not quite that busy, but I am fairly busy. 🙂
Last week, I had a MG meeting and a dinner with MGs from a couple of NY counties who were visiting NH. We had some great conversations, and I even spent a few minutes with some folks who went to the same high school I did which resulted in a lot of chuckles.
Today, I’m delivering those 141 daylilies for over wintering. How many pots of daylilies can one load into the bed of a Nissan Frontier? How about 101 in the bed, and the remaining 40 are inside on some plastic. I will be glad to hand these off.
Tomorrow, I’m headed to a Great Bay workshop to discuss the challenges and future of the Bay and then a pruning workshop on Thursday. In between, I’ve been working on some gardening projects and going through my fall list of gardening chores at home.
Everywhere I go, I see bees, lots of chubby bees buzzing all around but not bothering anyone.
Yesterday while loading the plants, we did notice a fence panel with broken brackets so we took it down, replaced all four plastic brackets with metal ones and put it back up. In between the cross rail, there was a paper wasp nest that had to be removed. They were fairly lethargic so that was a good thing.
After such a cool wet spring, our tomatoes are just now coming in full force, and we’re hoping to eat them all before the first frost.
I’ve also been doing a little sewing, notice I said, ‘little.’ I’m not in the sewing groove yet, but I wanted a small bag to carry my phone and a couple of things in on this Great Bay walk we’re doing so I looked through my options on Pinterest. I found the size I wanted and decided to just make one without a pattern. Then because I live in jeans, I took an old pair of capris and cut them up to use for fabric. It came out pretty good for being lightweight and walking in the pucker brush.
Hope you have a good second week in September whether you’re outside or inside, and remember the fall apple crop is coming in so stop by a local farm stand and pick some up. I stopped by Tecce Farm Stand in Durham last week and got a small bag of apples, and while I was there some cinnamon bread and blueberry crisp jumped into my bag as well. I’m happy to report, they were all delicious. I’ll be back there on Thursday for a refill. 🍎
