Wow. I finally finished my five 60 hour weeks and have been decompressing. The weather is absolutely gorgeous which is helping to chill out. Today I changed the blades on my riding lawn mower (bent them last time I mowed riding over a root), mowed the yard and harvested the last of my veggies (mostly peppers). I then cut all the vegetation out of the vegetable planters and put it all in the compost pile to make compost for next year. This years experiment of growing vegetables in the Earth Box planters was a complete success. Next year I will install an automatic watering system with the boxes to save the daily watering chores. Below is a picture of the vegetables I pulled today just before putting them into freezer bags and freezing. The front center are cherry tomatoes. Left to right around the tomatoes are bell peppers, anaheim and banana peppers, jalapeno peppers then carribean red hot peppers. I won't be lacking for peppers this winter.
