Norman got his walk in and I did some sewing and started cutting out another dress for Dyhana and her sister. Then after breakfast we went to the garden and dug some potatoes and picked a cauliflower. I took time to tie up the tomatoes again. They are growing so fast and strong and getting another cluster of tomato buds, this makes 4 on some of them so only two more clusters to go and then they should be about 5 to 6 foot tall and at the top of their stake at which point I will cut of the growth center and not let them get any taller. I still have to pinch off the suckers each day. Then it started to rain – again– so we came back to the house. I used the rest of the morning until break reading up on potato scab. I found out what it is and what causes it and found some suggestions as to what to do to stop it but I far as I can see there isn’t much I can do that I am not already doing. It isn’t bad and does not effect the taste or health of the potato so I am not going to worry about it. They did say that Yukon Gold and Red Pontiac were the worse kinds for scab and of course that is just what we plant. Next year I will look for a different kind of potato but I like these so we will see next year.
I spent the afternoon taking a nap and doing some more sewing. I don’t know how many humming birds we have but they are eating almost a quart a day so there has to bee a boodle of them. This afternoon there were all females so they must be nesting now. The blue birds are nesting again, our other bird house now has four beautiful blue eggs in it. I never see the birds but know they are there as someone is caring for the chicks. We are careful not to disturb any of the birds that nest here- I love listening to them. Have a great day.
