We went away for the weekend, and one of the things I was most looking forward to when we came back was seeing how much the garden had changed. I think its the same with anything, when you're around it every day you don't see the changes, but when you go a away for a bit, it seems to have changed drastically.
I don't think I told you this, but I picked 3 tomatoes before we left. So we've already harvested from this wonderful little bit of earth. But upon our return things seemed to have gotten out of hand.
|This lettuce bed is clearly imploring me to rescue it from the ravages of the weeds.|
|I told the lettuce to quit whining and pull the weeds themselves.|
I didn't put them there, so its not my mess.
|This is what happens to an onion plant when you leave it alone for the weekend.|
Clearly, onions require more supervision than I thought.
The peppers have become contributing members of our garden society.
(p.s.- I learned about garden societies from reading Samantha; An American Girl books. All I wanted as a small girl was to live in the Victorian era and have Petit Fours for my birthday cake. That is all.)
|The Zucchini tells me that it ain't gonna do nuttin.|
So, I tell the zucchini, I'm going all biblical on it's self, and proclaiming,
"He who shall not give me something to eat shall not live"
Ok, so I took a little liberty with 2 Thes. 3:10.
Really, its kind of the same, for a vegetable plant...
|I'm wondering if the potatoes are telling me that they're ready to go, or if I'm slowly killing them.|
I say, only time will tell.
|We've got some Lil' Romas waiting in the wings|
|The Germans are even throwing in a lil' green guy.|
Really, he's an heirloom tomato, and I'm not sure what he's supposed to look like when its pickin' time.
|This guy was originally masquerading as a pepper plant.|
His cover was blown on Wednesday, and I am here to report that he is no longer with us.
As a final crowning glory, I was able to capture this photo
I do believe that if someone were to form a cult to worship the tomato, they may frame this photo and hang it in a terribly gaudy gold frame in the main room in their lodge.
|However, please do not form a cult to worship this tomato. |
He's not going to last the weekend.
Can anyone say SALSA?
Getting a lot of mileage out of this here Gar-Deen,
