|And this here! Such a simple site but one I've grown to love. Just an old trailer, a chicken house (I think)? Correct me here if I'm wrong Tommy! And then of course his old gold truck.|
And now onto my garden! Please know that I typed that last sentance with a sigh! I'm in the house instead of in my wonderful garden only because I'm frusterated right now! Something as simple as staking the tomatoes can at times become a chore bigger than myself! Whatever God put into men that He left out of me catches up with me sometimes! And of course, that's when I wish Tommy was here! All I need to do today is tie up these tomato plants and now I have to wait on assistance because cutting the stakes down to size proved too much for me! However, I will insist on getting an A+ for effort! I went after the stubborn things by hand, with a hatchet, and with a saw! Then common sense got the better of me and I decided to wait on my father in law, as what would have taken me all day will probably take him all of 5 minutes! And that there is the difference in men and one woman around here! :)
Now onto the rest of the garden story.....how much I've enjoyed and loved the work out here this week! Things are really starting to grow and flourish and I happen to be quite proud of these plants! As of a couple days ago, everything is planted!!!!! And almost everything that has been planted is on it's way up and out of the ground! Just waiting on my eggplant, carrots (not sure on those for this time of year), and my purple hull peas to make their appearance. And, those were the last of the seeds that made it into the ground!
These are my favorite and best tomato plants, and yes, those that caused my earlier temper tantrum! They're growing strong and fast! Just the last day or so I'm starting to see them flower! Can't wait to get them tied up!
The whole garden! My next project has taken alot of forethought and needs yet even more study! I'm about to get the soaker hoses up and running.....at least I hope so! The verdict is still out on what will be the most effective way to water this garden! Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated! YES, that was a hint!!!
