Finished another busy week at the salon. Friday after work, I waxed the back of the mo-ho, and cleaned the patio door and a few windows. Saturday after work, we came home, fixed cocktails, and relaxed on the deck. And then I dug potatoes!
Yep! dug these from 3 plants. My vegi garden isn't doing to well this year, so I was happy to find this many. So they'll add to a couple of our meals this weekend.
Today, after cleaning the salon, I'm off to Muskegon to see mom and take her out for an early birthday meal. Craig is staying home, doing bookwork, and cleaning the house. He's got to come up with another $2500.00. We have to replace the roof top air/heating unit at the Salon. Fortunately, when we sign our latest lease 3 years ago, we added that we would pay 2 months rent toward replacement of the unit if and when it was needed. The mall is fairly old, and we knew other tenants have had problems in the past, and we didn't want to get stuck with the entire $6000+ bill. And when we had routine maintenance on it this summer, he discovered the heat exchanger was cracked, along with badly rusted mounting brackets, so he shut off the gas to it. Thank goodness it is summer and not winter. But they're coming next Wed. to replace it.
Well, I'm off to clean the Salon, and then to Muskegon.

    Have a good trip!
    I love your potatoes! I want to try potatoes sometime. Been reading about alternate ways to grow them. :)



  2. Aren't potatos the funniest little things all buried down in the dirt......and delicious!

  3. That's a bummer, about the HVAC unit. But it sounds like you were both wise and forward thinking!

    Great taters!
