The indoor plants. You haven't been updated on their progress in quite awhile. As you can see the Avocado on the left is enjoying being on the kitchen counter under the skylight. Indirect but bright light. Getting a second group of leaves. To the right is the Arabian Coffee plant husband gave me for Christmas. This plant had a very hard time getting used to my house. But now it's growing, making leaves and is very happy. The stems were all clumped together so I added a wide mouth canning jar ring to separate the stems. Seems to be working and the plant is so much more "abundant" in it's leaf production. The secret to the green leaves- a spray bottle with water and Miracle Grow- the blue stuff- once will do the trick. And I also rub my fingers over the leaves. They seem to enjoy that.
You also get to see my ancient stove. 1984 or 6. Hard to say when they installed it or purchased it. It's in a half wall that divides the kitchen into two--- dining and cooking spaces. The dividing wall is only 8 feet tall. The ceiling is two stories tall.
Yesterday I baked a peach cobbler and it bubbled over the baking dish onto the pizza stone I keep in the oven. Thank goodness. The cleanup was easy when it might have been quite awful. Electric. Heating elements would have been coated in burning sugar.
We had Tomatoes and Cheese again. And sweet corn. My basil on the back deck is still producing. I just keep pinching the tips off so it doesn't go to flowers. The Fig Tree provides some shade. About a dozen figs are on the Tree. I water it twice a day- hoping the figs get ripe. They are getting nice and fat but are still green. Temps here in Maine are in the low to high 60's. Not exactly August temps. And it's been raining.
I am wearing a "sapphire and diamond" band. I can't remember if it's real or fake. (if I bought it- it's fake) The band itself looks like gold. I don't remember where the ring came from or when. But I decided to wear it this morning. Sapphire is September's birthstone. And it fits and isn't making me itchy....yet. At some point in the day- I will want it OFF. And return it to the small glass dish of rings.
I am going to the library to pick up a book. I may stop at the grocery to buy milk, four for a dollar sweet corn and husband needs coffee.
The Peach Cobbler is pretty damn good. Great Peaches.
