Good Morning World.......
It is time to mow the lawn again. The rains from a few weeks ago really didn't change the grass much but the dew in the mornings that has been forming, has brought our dormant grass back to being green. The soil quality of the yard really is bad so some areas will probably never be green until next spring. I am thinking I will spread bags of soil in places, thinly, to try to counteract the clay that is out there.
I shared the two different locations as to where this vine was growing this spring. I now share that I am not a happy homeowner as far as it is concerned. It is a monster and invades everything. The previous own must have cut it down last fall to a very short vine as it is now overtaken the corner of the deck and the stairs. I have previously shared photos of its advance on the deck floor above.
I do know the pumpkins re going to do well. The leaves of all of the vines have the powder mildew growing on them. I think I will just eliminate them as I think the pumpkins are good without the leaves. We have not had pumpkins for fall decorations but we can do that this year.
It is cold this morning but it will warm up by noon. I have a few things planned to do but nothing major. It will be an easy going day today. I do have my mat board cutting zone set up, left over from our frame shop, that is needed to cut mats for my wife's pastel artwork. That may get cut today. It is nice to have a large furnace room where I can set that up and leave it up year round. The mess of all of that will be hidden now. As one hurricane is going away another is arriving. It really is something I remember as a normal back when I was a kid. I hope that this one is not as strong as the predict. Everyone take care and thanks for checking in on my blog today.
