After a laborious Summer season, the end is near. It's that celebratory week-end other workers (but me) seem to always have off for relaxing n going to Back to School sales. Some of those clothes are so cheap I got some for me too!

Summer folks in large quantities are here all over, relaxing. The neighbors are even out kayaking in the Christobal small-craft warnings on our south facing beaches in this particular section of Cape Cod. Guess they don't pay attention to the news when on Vacation. I wonder if the harbormaster was out kicking their butts to obey the warning flags.

I'm lucky to get 2 to 4 hours of sleep with the outdoor noise lately, n have been getting allergy head-aches from all the ragweed pollen. In one more week it should be a different scene around here, fewer folks around, alot more rest time, n less crazy work until Columbus Day.

Pics are from the deck tomatoes 3 weeks n 2 weeks ago. At one point I counted 14 green ones on the one, bush type, potted, plant. They are ripening in various sizes from cherry to large Beefsteaks. The vine was too heavy, so I took some off to ripen on the windowsill. I've cooked two, n have five in the frig. With the prices for organic on the vine at the market, my planting n care labors are paying off.

(pic order gave me alot of trouble again in the editor this post- but guess I like the unintentional one on the top anyway!) 

I hope your labors are feeling rewarded also-
Have a good Labor Day Week-end,

You are quite industrious in keeping plants from the critters. Glad that works!!

Sorry, to hear about the headaches. I have not had one in over a week, knock wood. With me it seems to be changes in the barometric pressure than can trigger them.

Ummm, give me a beefy-steak tomato any day! And a steak, for that matter. :)

Christobal, interesting name for a Hurricane. I guess they do have to keep coming up with new names, eh? And each year has to be diffenent for each letter name?

Wow that's not enough sleep to survive on, I hope things quieten down soon, and that you can get some rest. I'm impressed with your plants.

Here in the UK it's just a normal weekend.

This has been a luxurious summer and I distress to think it is coming to an end. I am not ready to face another horrible winter like last year and pray to go into it better prepared.

Tabor, The squirrels alone used to do them in, then there's an opossum. Chicken n hardware wire are easy to reconfigure.

Jannnie, been a bad allergy season- Beef is so over-priced now! Changing storm name lists doesn't make them any friendlier. We still get butt-kicker no-names anyhow-. I can't get the good computer for loading your pics until next week, btw-

LLcoolJ, Yep, I'm very grumpy, n Not a Cat! One more week, n things will be looking up- For such a late summer start this year, the plants are finally doing well, n the produce always tastes better than the market food. Thanks

Gran Annie, it took so long to get nice here this year- it's been too short a summer! Remember to stock up on clean blankets, sweat-shirts, plastic to hang up, n emergency heater- units. Maybe some disposable pocket- heat-paks they use for football too- Enjoy the warmth while it lasts! Praying for a mild winter doesn't hurt either.

Ahh...the end of summer is upon us, and hopefully you'll be able to get back to some kind of (in)sanity soon.

Fresh tomatoes are a very good thing indeed.

I've had a cold for a few days and then ragweed on top of that sort of aggravated it. A nasty business, but I loved the holiday anyway. I'm glad you've had some nice days.

G.B. , insanity may be more fun than what I've been doing. I'll settle for a whole 6 hours of un-interrupted sleep minimum per day. Now if the cat would cooperate... Good for pizza, rice, stew, n my nutrition, plus so expensive.

Lynn, hot weather colds are difficult- n Bugs are running around work n little ones the past several weeks. I've had a few bad days but didn't get to stop.
Here comes warm weather time off- yay!
Hope you are recovered n the pollen lets up there for you.
