Another thing I'm wondering is whether I can sustain a daily blog without the guys. Before when I had nothing to say, I could post a hunk and not worry, knowing the gang would take the balls and run with them. (pun intended) But eventually, I think of something, even if it's just randomness--like today.
Speaking of worries, I made more of those pickled peppers yesterday, and I believe the recipe I posted to be the best version of it. The peppers in that first batch are crisp and tasty! Budley even liked them!
Now all I have to worry about is whether or not to name the deer that keeps coming into the yard to eat the apples. Seems like anytime I look out, there she is. She's become such a frequent visitor that Peaches only chases her away when encouraged to do so. She does, however, chase the rabbit that has taken up residence in my garden and has eaten the bean plants down to the stems. I'm hoping she gets the little bugger soon.
Deer, rabbits, Japanese beetles, and a variety of other pests have plagued my garden this year, but at least we don't have this problem.
Tanya sent me these pics a few weeks back, and I'm hoping the grasshoppers have moved on by now.
