Last week's fishing continued to be very slow even though I finally caught a decent fish. This 39 inch striper must have been a loner since no other big fish were caught as far as I know. Lets hope the fall run generates some action in the next couple of weeks.

Today I picked the end of my grape crop. I have one vine which produced 2.5 spackle buckets full of grapes. That comes to close to 50 lbs of grapes. I think I got about 2.5 gallons of grape juice which was fabulous. The juice is so rich that it can be cut with water which makes it last longer. It takes time picking and cleaning the grapes, but it is well worth the effort. My tomato crop is now over 2700, and I still have some to pick. We are still enjoying them and Linda made some tomato soup today. I have also given away lots to friends and neighbors. Fishing remains very slow especially in the ocean. The only concentration of fish I have found in the last couple of weeks was in Pleasant Bay where there was tons of bait. I tried the Canal yesterday. I caught no fish and ended up calling 911 when I felt faint due to over heating when I walked a long way and was overdressed. I guess I am getting too old for late night solo trips. My thanks to the Bourne Fire and Rescue squad who checked me out and gave me a ride back to my vehicle. I have taken most of my Hibiscus to winter over in the barn. Hopefully most of them will still be alive come spring. All the geraniums are hang upside down dry root in the barn. They were fine this spring when I did this last year. That's it for now from Loon's Landing.
