|The forest mid-summer...|
The garden is in full mid-summer mode with everything growing nicely except the tomato plants. The two that were hit hardest by the unusually late frost are showing the affects of damage. One learns something new every year they garden and I learned if a tomato plant has severe frost damage... replace it even if it begins to grow.
Finding computer time has been more difficult than usual and the song siren of the outside world has meant minimal time for reading. But some is accomplished a little here and a little there. ;)
This is what is happening in my world through the lens of a camera.
WatchingAmerican Ride has become my favorite American history show. The host is quite a character (on and off screen I hear) but the way history is taught makes you feel you can see what is happening.
Highly recommended and enjoyed. Great for homeschoolers!
Those are baby potatoes in the bowl, I bought them at the grocery store. They were not thrifted.
We have two, one for Hubby and one for me... but I separated them at least temporarily to use one on the deck and one on the porch. They are SO comfortable. What a blessing!
|Kale, one tomato, parsley, basil, and lots of green beans from the garden.|
|The kale is still growing nicely so I'm using it a lot.|
|I'd grow herbs just for their beauty but they do get used.|
|The basil is looking good.|
|The apple mint will be allowed to go to flower eventually.|
But I'd forgotten how much Victoria enjoys curling up in this carrier. Go figure...
Our House Guest
Oh... Victoria is not amused. She hears me coo "pretty kitty" to him. Even if he is a boy. He has been exceptionally good considering he is in a cage. But he is a lively guy and tends to knock things over so his imprisonment is his own fault. ;)
