Starting Over!

Starting over  with  the flowers

One thing about living in the South is the long growing season!  My zinnias are near the end of their flowering so I cut a few heads off and dried them.  I planted these Sunday and watered them with a high ph water that we get from our Kangen water system. Not sure how it works, but it said the 11.5 ph water would make seeds sprout faster.  I believe it! We drink the 9.5 ph out of the same system.  Here’s a link  for  more info.

Not pictured is a squash sprout.   I’ve heard Fall squash is good so I pulled up so hills of Zuchinni that weren’t doing much and started some yellow crookneck directly in the ground.  I want to see which sprouts quicker; the ones  in the ground or peat pots.
A few tomatoes still  coming  in

I can’t get over how good home-grown tomatoes are!  I’ll miss them.  I might try to grow them in the greenhouse again this year.  Last winter didn’t go so well.  Plants grew fine, but I  think  I didn’t  keep the greenhouse  warm enough. I wonder  if  Terry will  let me grow some in the dining room?  Not likely unless they match the decor.

Speaking of decor, I think I  might have to  repaint the  living  room (see previous  post about Terry’s angst with the paint color).  What didn’t  help  was her friends at Bible Study today telling  her in a nice  way that her fear was probably right.  Get out  the paint chips  again!  It won’t be  too  bad  this  time since the prep work  and  baseboards are done.  I think it  should be  black  since  it  goes with anything!
