Thursday’s weather was more of the same, only warmer (high of 78 degrees here in Redford).

So, walking outside was great!

I had errands to run at lunchtime and didn’t have time to eat at a restaurant. So, I stopped at Arby’s and got a roast beef sandwich (with horsey sauce) curly fries and a coke. I took it back to work and ate at my desk. It was fast food, but delicious,

When I got home, I changed clothes and went out back. I hooked up the square head sprinkler and watered the vegetable garden.

While the water was on, I went up front and weeded another section of the garden, after adding dirt between the flagstones and the original garden. Then I spread two bags of mulch.

A neighbor from down the street (who I don't know) was walking his handicapped daughter in her wheel chair on the street (we don't have sidewalks). He told me my garden was looking good. I told him I'm trying!

Back in the back, I rolled up the hose. Then I pulled up all the dead or dying plants. All that remains is a few small peas (not even flowering), the green beans (somebody’s chewing on them) and the immature radishes. I left them to see if I get anything, but I think I planted them a bit too late.

I harvested the last three cucumbers. The cucumber plant was my biggest producer this year!

I started making my planned dinner (the one I keep putting off) by grating an onion on the box grater. But, my eyes were watering, it was late and I was tired. So, I put the grated onion in a container in the fridge and just ate crackers and cheddar cheese for dinner. Then I went to bed at 9:00 p.m.


  1. How much more do you have to do on the garden before it's finished?

  2. Just to the end. Should be done tonight or tomorrow at the latest (thank God!!!)

  3. When will this mystery dinner be revealed?
