My Ear of Corn

Eat your hearts out, people.  I have ONE EAR of corn growing.  (laugh)
This is the volunteer by the deck at the old place. 

I stopped by after church today... I had not been there since we left so 
fast to get Keith to the hospital last Saturday. 

I have a mess to clean up inside... paint cans, drywall scraps, insulation, etc. etc. 
We still need to get staples out of the floor and then paint it with Kilz. 

I have one room left to paint over again.  

Odds and ends. 

We have found someone to do the carpentry because Keith is not 
going to be able to do it. 

As soon as this baby is ripe, it's going into the boiling pot. 

This is the south flower bed.  You can no longer see the flowers in it, the weeds went nuts this last week.  Neighbor Troy is going to cut the weeds down in the bed behind it... and I am going to get busy this week once I know what the schedule is for the reconstruction repairs at our new house (from the water leak). 

There were still a few daylillies blooming in the weed cover. 

The pear tree is not only ripening, but the leaves are beginning to change color.  It's a little too early. 
The apple tree is groaning under it's burden, too... I did not get a picture of it. 

This little guy watched me go into the hospital to help my brother Pete at lunch today. 

And when I came out an hour and fifteen minutes later... he was almost in the same spot! 

Hopefully, Pete will be released from the hospital tomorrow. 

I have destroyed my phone this weekend... don't ask... and am awaiting the delivery of a new one.  All those pictures lost.  

Our area is predicted to have cooler temperatures this week... I'm hoping the construction guys get in here and get the work done at this house so I can concentrate on the old one for a while! 

Oh... one more picture... 

These were volunteer plants, remember... and I suspect they are Gypsy, from Baker Creek, which I planted last year.  The tomatoes are sweet and good, and I brought a bunch home for dinner tonight. 

The plant in the flower bed has lots of tomatoes on it... but none is ripe yet.  Our plant 
in the pot at home, has MANY nice sized tomatoes on it, but the four I have picked have had blossom end rot on them.
