As you may have gathered from the title, this post is really for Miss Chef. If you want to see how my garden is doing and/or what I've been cooking, please scroll down to the next post.
Thank you, and have a nice day.
Hi Honey. Just thought you'd like to see how things are going here. I took these pictures at 8:00 in the evening without a flash, how cool is that? We got a good rain shower tonight just beforehand, so it made all the colors sharp and intense.
Anyway...the cherry tomato plant is now taller than I am.
It's got plenty of ripening tomatoes. I gave a handful to the neighbors and told them to come steal more next week. I think the brandywine might have set more fruit, too. Having the plants well-staked for once will keep most of the fruit out of dog and rabbit reach, I hope. So far, so good. I think Rosie hasn't figured out that the tomato plants in the new bed are the same as the ones that she's used to finding in the garden.
The raspberries are so very, very close to being ripe. I don't know if you can tell, but I got some bird netting to cover them with. I swear we have some in the shed, but I couldn't find it. Anyway, we might get enough to freeze some?? I tasted one that looked ripe yesterday, and it was awfully bitter. I didn't see any today that were near to being ready.
The rose of sharon tree started blooming.
I've had two ant-free days, after a bout of chemical warfare on Sunday. I'm doing very well at keeping the place clean, so if there are ants when you come home, it can only be Rosie's fault.
She misses you too. But not nearly as much as I do.
Now I have to go fold socks & underwear.
Travel safely. ♥
