sometimes I do what I got to do.

sometimes I do what I want to do.
sometimes when I got to do what I want to do – it’s the same damn thing.

Garden Update #2

Ok - So after about 3 weeks of a steady heat wave...
- A wonderfully large water bill...
- Fighting off the pests...
- Expressing love and constant nurturing...

We were finally able to reap the fruits of our labor!! (Well, kind of...)

So - Here's the update:
  • Tomatoes do not seem to be doing that well - at all. So far we ate one off of the patio tomato plant in the container - but NOTHING from the (4) plants in the ground. Apparently "something" has been robbing us - as i have found evidence of this in my hosta pot.(Yes - that is a half eaten green tomato... what is even funnier is that i went out there the next day and it was gone.)

  • Green peppers - umm, yeah, they aren't doing anything either.
  • very sad.
  •   Cantaloupe- Well.... Its spreading like crazy - and I see evidence that we may actually get a couple of cantaloupes - if we do not get robbed.
 BUT the Cucumbers are doing excellent!!! So far we have eaten a couple of them AND I just picked this one off of the vine tonight.....

    (Thanks for the cucumber salad recipe Marissa (& Martha)!!)
