Thought I would show you the harvest of the day/week.
I got up the gumption and went out to the store today.
Mr and I were able to save over budget $500. this month!
So I got a forked hoe to tend the earth.
Been out in the garden all evening.
The Chinese cabbage is in as are the pole beans, radishes, and Copenhagen Cabbage.
There are three 16' furrow's worked now.
The cabbage is in two of them and the other one will have the carrots.
The carrots will go in the next time I am in the garden.
Got dark on me and I just needed to stop.
The sugar snap and peas are surprising me , I thought for sure I lost them.
They had so much on them I can make a nice meal out of them.
The tomatoes are reddening too.
The Simpson black seed is still given me lettuce leaf.
The million dollars cherry tomatoes are loaded with young fruit.
I was able to get three tomato cages today and placed them on the three plants in the bail. One of the plants has Roma, and another has a nice round slicing variety.
My Dog (the Lab) keeps trying to eat those plants also.
I am guarding them with chicken wire.
The Egg count is rising and this keeps the family well in eggs and as it turns out just the perfect amount. Have not purchased eggs seance Christmas (baking).
I purchased a nice asparagus fern for the entry way. It is my gift to me for this month. So pretty ! There was a nice plant stand for free on the curb last week, that and an empty pot that I had. Need a little potting soil and I'm set It is huge , I found it for 10.88! too cool!
That was my big splurge.
It felt real nice.
I'll have a gift to make for my dear friend. We are going to get together next Tuesday.
I look real forward to an evening out with the girls.
That is the night before my sleep deprived EEG test.
If I am going to be sleepless there is no better way!
Spending time having fun.
If you recall My Sweet Mr gave me a Camera thing to Skipe, that is to have a talk over the computer like your on the phone ,but ya can see each other.
This day and age is so amazing. Dove and Dash are getting to know their aunt from a distance. Yet they still get the bennefet of another known adult in their lives.
My sister two years elder has been calling me several times.
Each morning she calls.
Funny how life travels by.
Here we are middle aged women and becoming friends.
Who would of thought it.
I really care about her.
She and her husband have just lost everything with the deportation threat.
He is a Brittish citizen and 25 years ago was told he had no need to get American citizenship.
Well they sold the house in bad times thinking that they would be kicked out and then got a stay.
Have now been in limbo for several years .
Like a prisoner in her own country.
She stands by her husband and will continue to fight.
They laywers are the only ones who really bennifet.
Well tired girl with earth in my hair and soil in my nails.
I need a good hot shower with a nice soak for my tired back.
I love it when I garden, I saw a rainbow all 7 colors dome the sky for a good half an hour over me today while I gardend in the light rain. It was in the mid 70*'s.
