Re: Windy, rainy

Fall has arrived here also- has rained off and on since last week. Of course, at the beginning of this week, we got the last window put into the house, and today was gorgeous out and they got 2/3 of the house weather-proofed and lathed in anticipation of the stucco. They are finishing the lathe work tomorrow, but it is supposed to rain Saturday and Sunday. Hopefully the forecast for sun on Monday will hold and the first layer of stucco can get put on!
My garden is just a mess right now- needs fall cleanup badly. I have managed to kill off nearly all of the grass in the back yard though- and with only one application of round-up. I want back an resprayed the few remaining greenish spots at the beginning of this week, so hopefully that will finish it off. After the house is all done, then resodding the back yard in next on the big to-do list.

Has been windy rain & warm here too. 65F, thanks to the "pineapple express". Don't you love the names they give these weather systems? Most of my porch pots froze in the cold snap 2 weeks ago. Looks like a couple of the geraniums might live.
We voted about 10 am, but the calls keep coming.
Will look forward to pics of the orchid when things calm down.

Subject: [CHAT] Windy, rainy

It's a windy, rainy day--gloomy, but not cold [74 degrees]. Began picking "kirmizi aci" peppers yesterday, so I'm drying them today. Picked 11 yesterday, mostly from the inside of the plant, where they don't show. I want to let those on the outside stay put until most are ripe and I can take a picture of it to send to the young lady who sent the seeds. Looks like this plant will produce two to three dozen peppers this season. That's a lot of hot!

Got another orchid blooming, but it's bobbing around in the wind too much to photograph.
