We missed a good opportunity for rain yesterday morning; the breeze got up and it was pretty dark south...alas, it missed us again.
I just puttered yesterday. I re-varnished the trim above the sink where the water splashes. I used the new miracle re-finisher recommended by the cabinet maker (a local shop). It is called Good Stuff and it is. It is in jelly form and you apply with a soft cloth. I put on two coats, buffing between both. We also refinished DH's step dad's old cane. He did the sanding, I put on two coats of Good Stuff. While I was on a run, I put another coat on the top of the kitchen table. I scrub this so often, the finish begins to wash away.
I walked out into the kitchen garden, the first time in a few days, and was delighted to find a cherry-type self-seeded tomato hanging full of ripe ones. I had given up on any more tomatoes this year. I remembered when it first began ripening I practically ignored the lowly thing waiting for a 'real' tomato. Funny how time changes things (words to a song?). They are very sweet this time of year and taste wonderful. I picked a small bowl full and now will be watching it closely.
I see some green tomatoes on the regular vines, but I doubt they will have time to ripen.
I need to plant some garlic this week. I hope to do it after a rain...
