A Volunteer!

A stray seed had found its way into becoming a full fledged plant out by the side of the house, and has yielded ONE little potential of a fruit so far.



We aren't sure what sort of melon-type plant it might be, as we eat quite a variety of those, but we are guessing cantaloupe, maybe?

The little yogurt container was just for size comparison.

Yeah, right.

Remember the jigsaw puzzle we talked about a few posts back?

Well, I was looking online to see if I could find a bigger picture that perhaps had the whole photo on it, and lo and behold, what do I find?

Seriously?

First Fig

We have had some cuttings from Walter's fig tree for a number of years now, but this was the first year it finally bore fruit.

Even if it was just one.




The legacy continues on!

In Search Of...

Someone who could fix the fuel gauge on our car.

We had this horrible rat infestation thing going on, on the plantation several years back, and they chewed up wires in the vehicles like you wouldn't believe.

We got some things fixed, but the fuel gauge remained faulty - we would get gas every couple of weeks like clockwork, knowing our habits and that it would be half a tank or so every couple of weeks - until this week, when we started looking for someone to actually fix it so I wouldn't have anxiety attacks if we decided to go out of town sometimes and didn't have to do mental arithmetic to make sure we had enough gas to go on.
