|This was just a little over two weeks ago, wait until you see the new pictures!|
However, as of the last hour the garden has been perused, picked over, and watered as I thoroughly melted into the sod. Or at least it felt that way. I was going to show you a few pictures taken of lovely produce but that would require uploading pictures and my brain melted as well in the soupy humidity of a Midwestern July.
The garden should have been watered yesterday but it had to wait its' turn and I am certain I heard it complaining, especially telling were the withered leaves on the cherry tomato plants.
When I returned to the comfort of the AC, I told my husband I thought I could literally hear the sigh of relief from the herbs and veggies. He said he could hear them in the house. :)
So I will return at a later time with garden photos.
In addition to a variety of errands, I've been preparing lots of veggies for eating that Hubby brought home from Saturday's hours spent helping the elderly organic farmers. He came home with lots of green beans, cucumbers, green peppers, greens, and something else which slips my fried mind at the moment.
I'm taking some green beans over to my friend, Sheila, who offered to trade beans for her famous rye bread (which she sent over yesterday). For my bush beans are heavy with lovely beans, too... literally in the last two days. I'm also taking her some parsley from our garden as well as a few pretty nasturtiums. She didn't ask for those but perhaps they will be added to a salad. That's the plan here.
I love bartering. That's how the author of The Feast Nearby had fresh veggies in the summer from her neighbor. She bartered with the strawberry jam she had made.
There may or may not be a My World this Week. I have two other writing assignments popping up this week, which I will link to from here. That was another reason for the busy-ness. But if I can snap a few pictures in addition to the garden photos already taken, I'll sneak in a My World post.
Now... as my friend who grew up in Texas likes to say... I'm takin' to mah' sofa with a cold drink and the vapors.
