thoughts… brilliant and not

Are you having a resurgence of morning glory? I feel like it’s taking over this year.
I remember growing up there was a constant battle against it, but we seemed to come out the victors and morning glory hasn’t been a huge problem since.
Guess it was just biding its time. Because this year? This year, it’s everywhere.
I admit, it’s my fault. Earlier in the year I had thought about how morning glory used to be a huge issue and wasn’t anymore…. That’ll teach me to have thoughts.
The chili pepper plants have decided to skip the picking stage and go straight to the drying stage…. I mean, they’re beautifully dried… just not what we were hoping for.
Fortunately, the other pepper varieties are looking good.
I just had the brilliant thought today that we should grow the lunchbox/snacking sweet peppers. Like mini bell peppers. So hopefully those’ll get added to the pepper mix next year.
(In case you weren’t aware: all my thoughts are brilliant. Sometimes brilliantly bad… but that still counts as brilliant!).
It is peak tomato and peaches time so for this coming week only (8/8-8/12), you can get 5 lbs of yellow peaches and/or red slicing tomatoes for $10. Regular firsts, NOT seconds! No maximum (ok, maybe no more than like 50 lbs per person), but must buy in increments of 5 lbs.
The peaches and tomatoes are available in the store, no need to pre-order.
Remember, only available next week – August 8th through 12th. If you come in in October asking for the 5 lb tomato/peach special, we’re going to look at you like you’re crazy. And then say no.
