I am quite excited to get outside to try the new tractor. It should have no trouble eating up those leaves. There are so many leaves that I am going to also have to manually dig them out of my gutters and drain pipes. Oh well, better now before the weather turns colder.
I have grown weary of the discussions about whether Columbus actually discovered America or not, and the Native Americans saying that they mourn Columbus Day because they have been treated so badly. I agree with their assessment that they were treated badly, I really do. Don’t think I’m saying otherwise. I just am tired of the discussion. The point has been made! So many employers nowadays don’t give their employees the day off for Columbus Day, I don’t really think it is a holiday anyway! Just another excuse to run some sales, and for schools to close for a day.
Where ever Columbus actually landed, after his long voyage, I have to say that one thing is likely to be very true – the sailors must have been very excited when they spotted land – wherever it was!
This camp would also be a great location to hunt. There is an abundance of moose here as well. I love moose. There is nothing like a charbroiled moose burger. Maybe I can find some moose meat from last year to bring along. The guys would like that.
I will be pulling up the tomato plants and cucumber plants. Unfortunately, I had slight tomato blight on my tomatoes. It turned the leaves yellow and essentially killing the plant before the fruit was ready. I was able to get some fruit out of it but it was limited. Next year hopefully they will have discovered a better preventative for this disease.
