This is a basket of Jimmy Nardello sweet peppers. We started them from seed very late last spring but they took off and are extremely prolific. Rita likes them raw, or they are great in stir fry and salads. This was effectively the last garden harvest. We had a freeze last night and supposed to be in the 20's tonight.
We have not been able to get the garden in winter shape as we normally would, but I just tell myself that it will still be there next spring!
We gave the red hens to a friend today. I just did't want to deal with caring for them through the winter.
After such a dry Aug and Sept, we had over 9.5" of rain in October. "Shake and shake the catsup bottle...first comes none and then a lottle!"
My chemo and radiation treatments ended about 3 weeks ago. I am still dealing with side effects.....mostly neuropathy in feet and legs and what I call "wooden legs", making walking difficult. I am eating well but only have an appetite for certain things. I had a CT scan last week and it showed that the small nodules in my lungs have increased in size since the July CT. The Dr. says it is "concerning" and we will monitor closely.
Please pray that these stop growing and prove to be non-cancerous.
Thanks again for reading the blog and for praying.
