Since we now live in an apartment, we have no garden to prepare for winter, but my think about container gardening for next year.

Yesterday, we dried Parsley. Also picked Chard and Kale.
We're trying to "Winterize" the garden a bit at a time so
it isn't too much at once.

I picked some lettuce yesterday afternoon.
Looks like that will be the consistency of the fall garden.
Nothing else seemed to want to come up except I noticed a few potatoes sprouting up here and there. May not have time to make now but will leave them.

My computer tells me it is 44 but the last post showed 50. Either way it is chilly this morning.

Chilly here too. Computer shows 50, but sensor on balcony shows 48. The potatoes will probably be okay.

But bread has carbs.

This morning was spent building or rather preparing
a compost bed. Also taking out bean vines, some
tomato plants, the cucamelon vines, pulling Bind weed
out of the fence.
After a shower and lunch, I deserve some down time.

I went to work this morning and I am about to go out to my garden and so some cleaning too.

Carbs yes...... ISHY should know better than offer me any kind of sandwiches only the "necessary" ones.

Dug the sweet potatoes and they did very well for no more than I had planted.
I will plant a larger crop next year.

Also cleaned up more of the garden this afternoon. It is beginning to look much better without the weeds.

Yes. Weeds must be pulled to be eradicated. They're perennial, and they come back in the Spring.

You must learn to use "slips." Even from small sweet potatoes it is much more economical.

Why buy when you have your own for free??

Actually you can take a sweet potato and put it in a small amount of water and allow it to form roots.

Then over the potato it will grow its own slits.

No LFF.

Just for tomorrow.

My brother and sister in law are taking my daughter to St Louis this evening.
The appointment is at Barnes hospital at 9 am so they will go tonight. (2 1/2 hour drive from here)

Right now I am fearing the worse. Not much has been told me but daughter is at the local hospital here getting pre-op and that scares me. Pre-op to me says operation?? They are saying the mass is suspicious and St Louis is better equipped. Sounds to me it must be early stages of cancer. Guess I will know tomorrow evening. I am scared and I think that is why daughter mainly wants me her to look after the kids instead of there with her. I would come unglued for sure if I went. rdrop

Yes. That means operation- maybe to remove the mass. Then, if is is cancerous, hopefully, they'll get it all. Just pray, as we are doing, and try not to show your fears to the kids.

Daughter is on her way to St Louis.

And I need to verify an error on my part.....daughter is a home health care provider and it was her client that was at pre-op for a procedure the client is having done next week. So this means I misled you. I am thankful we are not at the stage of pre-op for my daughter. Hopefully they will find no reason for operating and there will be no cancer found.

Daughter had not made her self clear to me. This upsets me that I have misunderstood her.
