Looks like most of us will be pretty close to home this holiday weekend.
AAA states that probably more than HALF of the nation will be staying
within 300 to 500 miles from their home this year. Some places the schools
are starting the very next day, so some people are leaving early and
will return on Sunday or Monday. Gas prices don’t help either but they
are quite a bit lower than last year this time. Auto
Thursday I killed my tomato plants..Surprised  by that I mean I took three of them
up and carted them away to the garbage. They were no longer blooming
and were mostly yellow in color where green leaves once were.
Very disapointed in the hanging one. I bet we didn’t get 12 good size
tomatoes on it.  That is with miracle gro too!
WONT do that anymore. Someone told me that if I
just cut them back and leave them in the containers they will grow
again next year. Don’t know about that..Thinking here in MICHIGAN it gets plenty
cold and a lot of snow! If they aren’t doing well right now.. don’t think they’
will next year either. The yellow pear-shaped small tomatoes are
doing well as they are growing IN THE GROUND and are not root-bound.
I think I will have those until the frost gets them as they are still blooming.Smile
We plan on making a trip this weekend to the local farm stand just to see
what they have this SEPT., if anything at all. Havent had to visit them because
we have grown our own things, but curious and want some butternut
squash and they grow it there.
HELL HOUSE had lookers again Thursday. Funny to watch them really.
They seem so interested until they see that back apartment and the
moldy walls and the ceiling that has collapsed. YIKES.. NO DEAL!!
Gonna take major bucks from somewhere.
Thursday  afternoon  some man in a
car pulled up in front of our HOUSE and took a picture of it.
MOM  lost it. Sad She was yelling when I came into the room.
WHY is he doing that? What does he want a picture of MY HOUSE
FOR? Course he was pulling away when I saw him, but I just had
no answer for her. I told her maybe he was scoping out the whole
neighborhood.. to buy some houses. who knows. I hope she forgets about it..
 sure shook her up. If I see him again I am calling the COPS!!!Wink
WELL not much more from here…

  1. You’ll never believe this Sis, but guess what! Some guy was standing outside of my home also taking a picture yesterday. I glared at him and he just walked on up the street taking pictures as he went. that told me right there that it was likely the City. I still stood there, arms folded..he saw me but paid me no mind ( it IS a free country still after all) In a few minutes he went down the street catty corner to mine. Then, a City car came out of the street, My’s a tax assessor thing.

  2. I have had plenty of tomatoes and they are still blooming. They are not ripening very fast now though.I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!HUGS!!

  3. Too bad about your tomatoes, but at least you have some of those great pear shaped yellow ones—I love those and we didn’t get any again this year! I wouldn’t worry about anyone taking pics of your place—you can actually get pics of almost ANY place online—I’ve even seen YOUR house and garage online!!! Perhaps someone is scoping out the neighborhood to tear it all down and will offer you a reasonable amount for your place?!

  4. You know… get a license plate number on that guy the next time, too. That’s kinda frightening. I wonder why on earth he would be taking a photo of your house like that. It makes sense what Rambling said, a City Tax Assesor… The City is losing money out their ears in this economy and they’re going to try to eek every penny out. A Photo of the house will help the "expert" adjust the tax rates accordingly.This is what the world has come to…

  5. I would have to wonder why someone would be out taking pictures of your house. I hope it’s not the way the city assess it’s taxes, but I’m scratching my head trying to figure out some logical reason. Hmmmmm…..?Hope you have agreat weekend Sis.

  6. I think the assesors take a shot to add to the file to show they actually were at the property and to not get them confused. You could probably call the assesors office and ask if that’s standard procedure. Our tomatoes in the garden are still going which means more canning for me.. sigh (I wish I could sneak them to the garbage!)
