A Lazy Day in the Garden - Actifit: 10 29 2019steemCreated with Sketch.

in actifit •  22 days ago  (edited)

Another beautiful day in San Diego. The nights are getting crispy and the early mornings are quite cool.

Once the sun is up, it is really nice outside. My plan was to get a lot of gardening done today, but all my dudes and the dudess came over. The garden can wait!! People are more important.

Dude 1 build a blanket fort between two chairs. He stuck his head out exclaiming that he had build a kids cave.

“It’s like a man cave but for kids.”

Thanks for explaining, dude 😀

Everyone was too wiggly today to get a good picture.


Miss BB kept wanting to check out the baby while Dude 3 was relentlessly feeding her. He knows that she gets some coconut oil on her food. Let's just say that she got a lot of that today and some landed on his pants too :)

My husband was sitting on the veranda while my daughter, daughter in law, the baby and I had moved inside to have some cobbler. Suddenly, he send me a picture similar to the one above saying: "The yard right now."

immediately, I had visions of 3 dudes with garden shears and loopers being let loose by him. I have seen what those boys can do before And some extremely weirdly trimmed trees are my witnesses.

Did you know that fall and winter is a major gardening season in San Diego? At least in the coastal areas and mostly inland as well. It gets colder the further east you go (in the summer it is the opposite- every mile further inland it gets hotter )

I will share what I am planting as I get going. Lots of travel and visitors have delayed my winter garden.


While taking Miss BB on a short walk through the Lemon Grove neighborhood, we came across these beauties. Someone had lost of fun!

I am hoping to find a lot of carved pumpkins on the 1st. They make great chicken food and enrich any compost

Ooohhh Halloween feels... we don't have that where we are ^_^ Lovely photos! :))

I grew up without Halloween as well. I like the dress up idea - not so much the candy floating around...

Wow 😳😍👍! Look at that baby grow, she is growing bigger each time I see her, that is great.
Nice count my dear, nice time with family too.

She is growing like crazy and is very strong. She needs to be with 3 older boys wanting to hold her and play with her all the time LOL

Your garden looks so lush! :)

Finally got the irrigation dialed down LOL

Little kids are so funny! I love being a gramma! There's none of that pressure to raise the kid right; I can just enjoy the little one and the funny things she says.

Grandkids are the best!!!!

Once the sun is up, it is really nice outside.

Same here, except not too warm outside. Rainy here... expecting snow.... sigh, Thursday overnight.

oh, no snow here - but we sure could use some rain...

Once cutting it can be fun but making the pumpkins empty... I wonder how they stay in good shape,not rotten within 3 days time.

They rot 🤣 But they probably did it on the weekend since many people are gone all day during the week...

@mariannewest They do rot? I thought there was a way to avoid it. Years ago I tried to surch for a way to save it longer. Thanks for telling me. ❤️
