I am finally caught up, I finished the Carver story and another month of Web’s diary. It rained again last night and we got an inch this time. There was a lot of damage done around Nashville but the mountain protected us. We heard the wind blow but nothing that bothered us here under the face of Baker Mountain. Today we are taking it easy and getting rested up for the week end. We will pick tomatoes to day and tomorrow go into the farmer’s market where John has promised us three 20 to 25 pound boxes of tomatoes. We will get half of those cleaned, cooked and canned Saturday and finish those and the ones we pick on Sunday. That will be the last of the ones we buy. Then we will can only what is left on our plants and when they get too slow we will pick all the green ones and make some green tomato relish. I still would like to find some small cucumbers for Bread and Butter pickles but cucumbers are not to plentiful this year. Have a great day.
