Wasted Trip

But not a wasted day. It was a really nice morning, warm and calm, but that changed in a hurry.
By the time we got half way out to the acerage it was raining pretty good. I did'nt waste much time out there. I unloaded the few things that I hauled out and headed it right back to town to get something accomplished right there at home where I came from in the first place.

Mom and I proceeded to boxing things up and cleaning out lots of useless garbage. I really need to learn to let go of junk. I have old bills from the year 1834. Well not actually, but it is probably safe to say that I would have, if I were alive back then. I said goodbye to alot of stuff today, including my old couch. It is out on the deck getting a good taste of the rain we are getting. I brought the matching love seat out of storage to put in its place for now. This is the kind of work that mom really shines at, cleaning and packing. She loves it I think, (crazy women). I, on the other hand, was'nt really enjoying it all that much. lol. We did get alot done though, but there is still alot to do yet. I really can't wait until this part is over.
Every day I have been eating some of my tomatoes. I don't think I have had a completely ripe one yet though. I just can't wait that long. At first I kinda thought that all the tomatoes would ripen together. But I have been keeping up to them so far. It is like a contest to see who will win, the tomatoes or me. So far I am in the lead. All I know is that they are very tastey. It is simply amazing how these things come to be. I'm still scratching my head on this one. Amazing.


  1. Looks like the makings of a lot of "green fried tomatoes" to me! If nothing else, then some home made green tomato relish is in order!

    Glad you have some help in getting things ready, buddy!

  2. As a matter of fact I gave the "green fried tomatoes" a shot today for the first time. It was alright, I will be doing it again sometime, but not right away. The help is greatly appreciated and highly skilled in the department. I would be kinda lost without the help in this house cleaning situation. Most women and myself seem to have a totally different perspective of what a clean house looks like. Thanks for dropping in there boys.

  3. I find your blog interesting. I have tried to do similar things for years now. I tried some subsistence farming while raising a child. I am still here raising a little food, including lots of green tomatoes every year. There are lots of things you can do with them other than fried green tomatoes. I just pickled quite a few.

  4. Thanks for the visit TPitS. It looks like you've done more than just tried, looks like to me you are doing it. I had a glance at your blog an it looks interesting.
