Friday night was predicted to be our first real freeze of the season, so it was time to make some last minute preparations – drain the dock water system, put the jet ski in the garage, disconnect the outside hoses from the faucets and pick any remaining garden goodies. We got a 6 gallon bucket about full of sweet peppers, a good sized bag of jalapenos, and some small buckets of small tomatoes – green, ripe and in between. We usually have fresh tomatoes until around Thanksgiving.
Guess, I’ll need to get the fireplace ready for winter, but I don’t usually build fires until it’s below the mid 40’s for the daily high.
It was also BBQ prep day so I made up some rubs, got some of the meat ready, split some hickory for the Klose, chunked some for the Stumps and got the smokers ready. All-in-all a pretty busy day. And while taking a break in late afternoon, it was announced on TV that Mt. Leconte, in the Smokies, had 7” of new snow.
I believe it's time for me to find a new header picture with the dock season ending.
Have a good one and thanks for stopping by. I’ll be back tomorrow with a BBQ day update.
