Sunday we spent the day out on the lake on the jet-skis and then spent most of the evening in the pool. I got some gardening in on both days.
Monday I decided to go shopping and the boys went out fishing. Great long weekend.
My garden is looking good so far this year, I have had tons of lettuce, spinach, and radishes. The lettuce and spinach are just about through and I will surely miss them. I love fresh greens.
Dear Husband and Yngwie hammered in all my tomato stakes this weekend, all I have to do is tie them up when they are ready.
Those onions are about ready too. I haven't bought any plants this year either vegetable or flowers. This is the first year that everything was grown in my greenhouse. Such a satisfying feeling!
Guess what we had for dinner?
Speaking of plants. My Uncle Jessie, whose funeral I attended Friday, was an avid gardener. He always said any man who didn't have a garden was lazy. I don't agree with that, but I love to garden, I think it's a family trait. About 2 weeks ago I received an envelope in the mail. Inside was a paper towel with tomato seeds stuck to it and a photograph of a tomato with a measuring tape around it. It was measuring 20" in diameter. The back of the photo said "grow these tomato seeds and you will have tomatoes as large as mine". The envelope was sent to me via my aunt from my Uncle Jessie. He knew he had lung cancer and was dying and he wanted to pass his tomato seeds to someone he thought would grow them.
My instructions were to plant the entire paper towel. I did and up they came!
I have about 28 plants from these seeds. Hopefully these will get big enough in time to bear tomatoes so that I can save the seeds!
Busy time around the LBPsews house this week lots of gardening, sewing and cooking going on.
Have a great Tuesday!
