I can't believe stuff grows when I plant it.
it's a miracle really.
I have been working outside a lot lately... pretending that I know what I am doing...messing with flowers...and my garden. I have so many tomato plants...they were all the ones I started from seed back in March and they all grew big on me and now I don't have the heart to throw them away or give them away- they are like my children.
So if you live near me...expect some tomatoes to be found on your front porch...and no I will not can my tomatoes. No mason jars are found at this household...the thought of canning stresses me out. It is just so much easier to buy canned tomatoes from the store when they go on sale. I like to freeze things...that is about it.
I love seeing my girls going to town on freshly picked peppers and cucumbers...my snap peas were a hit too. I feel like Eve when I play in my garden. I would love to live off the land...can you imagine a life of eating only garden food?
Eve must have been beautiful...
and Adam too for that matter...as he worked hard at the sweat of his own brow...dang...definitly hot.
I love my little backyard. It is our little oasis get away. Shaded for most of the day with our huge tree-...we build forts, have snacks, dig, color, swim...slide. We went to the dump a couple months ago...to dump junk obviously- but I found a kid's slide sitting on the ground- perfect! and I also picked up 8 big planters pots for all my tomato plants...TREASURES. I felt like my dad for a quick moment.
Dad always comes home from the dump with some found treasure. Like that one time... a big box full of used purses... Mom: "Where on earth did you get all those ugly purses" Dad: "the dump...some of them are really nice" The box of purses stayed in our garage for about 5 years until one day Mom secretly threw them away.
what's going on in your backyard?
