On my walk last night I went out to the herb garden and there were 3 figs that are almost ripe!! This is a really good sign. When they start ripening in multiples that usually means they are going to all begin to ripen. I am so-o-o excited!! The chia plants, on the other hand, are still growing . . . taller. My persimmon tree is being watched closely by some animal and I'm not exactly sure whether it's squirrels or racoons but as soon as a persimmon gets ripe - it's gone. I have a very small tree but my girlfriend has a really, really huge tree of persimmons. Actually, she has 2 or 3 of them and they give her bushels of persimmons so she readily accepted my offer to take some of them off her hands. This too gets me excited because I'm looking forward to making some persimmon butter, something I've never tried.
Tonight will be my second day working. I have to be into work at 3:00 p.m. and work until 8:30 p.m. I'm nervous as a cat. While the job is not difficult, there is so much to learn and you learn this job while waiting on customers and oh gosh, I hate to make them wait while I stumble through it all - but there's no other way!!
I put 2 huge chicken breasts in the crockpot with barbecue sauce poured over them and put the crockpot on low, put a quart of pearsauce in the frig and some sliced tomatoes too. I'll probably make some deviled eggs for Hubby as well. That will be his supper since I will be gone tonight. He's a treasure. He's totally fine with my working. If I'm contented and okay, he's okay. My man has definitely mellowed. I'm so glad he's mine!!
Oh lookie here what I was able to pick!!
