Finally Morning Glories!  I have been waiting ages for this plant to finally bloom while it’s been growing like crazy.  They’re just as lovely as I had hoped for. In the meantime… bugs of some kind have been destroying my tomatoes and I’m not sure what to do… I’ve tried homemade remedies, but apparently not the right kind, so I hope it’s not too late to try something else. It looks like a lady bug has arrived on it’s own to help with the aphid issue I’ve been having with the jalepenos, however. On a sidenote, apparently I left one of the peppers on the plant longer than I meant to. That thing was HOT!  I felt so bad after Josh bit into a small slice and discovered they were more fiery than he likes. I actually only managed a few slice myself and then it was just more painful than tasty.

We ended up having a really nice weekend overall… things have been on the stressful side, so we had a really fun spontaneous day yesterday. We had planned on going to the Pioneer Village in Hastings, but didn’t spend as much time there as we thought we would, so we stopped at a winery on a whim afterwards and did a full tasting and just relaxed and talked for an hour or two and then decided to go to Dave and Busters for dinner and games. As always, we spent more than we meant to, but walked away with yet another kitchen appliance (Quesadilla maker) and a disco ball lamp… we had to use the tickets on something, right? :p
