A Garden Doesn’t Wait




Amazingly, even with all the neglect, the garden still produces! A short walk in the garden may have been exhausting, but well worth it- Pole Beans, Swiss Chard, ‘New Girl’ Tomatoes, Eggplant and some Zinnias!


Happy Gardening,

    Eeeesh! I thought I was the only one who did that (washing hair to get nails clean)! Maybe I should be relieved that it is an occupational hazard.
    Thats a lot of delicious-looking produce (yes, the zinnias too)

    lol on the nail cleaning solution...I didn't think about it so much but it's true!!

    I do hope you weren't doing too much in that garden whilst you were out, you still have a long recovery yet you know!!!!! (yes I am speaking from past...and present experience so take it easy...I'm having too!!!)

    That's quite a bit for a short walk. Glad you were able to make it out to see what is happening in it. Hope your feeling better! I've been thinking of you.

    Hi Tessa~~ As exhausting as it was, I bet you enjoyed every minute in your garden. The weather has been nice. Looks like you'll be eating well for awhile. Take care!

    It always amazes me at the tenacity of our garden! I'm glad you're up and enjoying, Kim

    Hi Tessa, I hope you are feeling better. My gardens are being neglected now, too, because 2 Sundays ago, I tripped on our dog's leash in the front yard, and fell while holding our 21 month old grandson, landing hard on my left knee. I haven't rested it enough at work, so the healing has been delayed. My husband picked some tomatoes yesterday after I asked him to. I hope to cut some and freeze them tomorrow while sitting at the table.
