I think it’s time for another Daily Tea. The world is such a crazy, sad, scary place lately. I think we all need this song, and the video that celebrates athletes around the globe coming together. I only the countries, governments, religions and political parties could do the same.
Here at the ghetto shack, Banjo and I are having a hard time coming together and there is only two of us. He’s desperate for some playtime, of really something, anything to happen to break the monotony. I really must get it together enough to play with him or walk him. I bought him a new ball yesterday and he has been desperate to run around me in laser fast circles taunting me with it. I just haven’t had it in me. I’m trying to pull myself out of the hole and get some tasks done. And it is happening, things are improving at a glacial pace, but there is improvement.
On the gardening front, my cheat plant has been producing pretty well but for some reason the fruit that remains is in no hurry to turn red. I did manage some watering yesterday so hopefully that was the missing ingredient since we haven’t had any rain in ages. We got some thunder and lightning yesterday, but no water was able to make it to the earth.
I have a question. Has anyone ever grown Tabasco peppers? I bought them because it was an heirloom plant and I had no tried it before. I’ve been waiting for them to get bigger, and then I realized DUH, they are the peppers that you buy at the store in the bottle with the vinegar. I have a couple dozen or more and I suppose it is time to pick them. It’s hard to say. I guess I’ll Google that. Okay I googled and pulled that picture. They grow upwards just like that. They will eventually turn red are as hot as cayennes! “Tabasco is one of the most popular hot peppers with a Scoville heat level of 30,000 to 50,000. These peppers will get hotter as they turn from green to orange to red.” I have to figure out what to do with them!
In the meantime, Stay Cool and Stay Woke it’s crazy hot and just plain crazy out there. And, well, in here too.
P.S. I meant to post LisaMia’s stupid petomato, Kyle. (she killed Kim) It’s some sort of FRANKENSTEIN thing growing in a bottle or something. I’ll let her tell you about it.
Also who the hell is that next to the garden gnome?
