Sorry it has been a while since my last blog. Been a lot going on. Jim's 56 y.o. brother died on June 30th. Anniversary of Mom's death on the 28th of June, Son "Alan"'s 23rd Birthday on July 11th, on July 14th ,son "Rob" Graduated from Ranger Training

and one plant that I thought was bell peppers.... but yet another jalapeno style ( wicked hot ) pepper...What kind of mood was I in at planting season?
The tomato's are also loving the hot temps! I'm guessing salsa is on the menu soon... I hope the neighbors are in the mood for some - a - spicy - a - hotta - salsa! Looks like the crops are a plenty!
Here's to the memory of our lost loved ones and the successes of our current loves and especially to the hot days and dishes of a Carolina summer!
Miss you Pop and Mike! Pop lived and loved 56 years... Mike kept his legacy intact through his se
