As we approach the first of September our 2019 garden is in full-swing! Do you remember what it looked like in the spring?
We are having fun with our garden. The lettuces in early summer were divine. The tomatoes are now ripening faster than we can eat them! We’ve been eating homemade marinara and gazpacho and caprese salads nearly every night.
Admittedly, we are really excited to have our own pumpkins too! We affectionately named the garden Jamie and the Beanstalk because the darned things have taken over!
Speaking of affection, Jamie has another love in his life. He spends time with her morning and night. He takes her drinks and nourishment and words of encouragement. He calls home to direct our children to do the same.
Please allow me to introduce her…
I’ve named her Felicia and he loves her. In fact, on a recent trip to Idaho for several days he loaded her into the car.
Oh yes, I hired a pet sitter to come four times per day to care for our pets.
No, off course he didn’t trust the care giver to water his beloved.
Here is a screen shot of my phone to prove it:
We all have issues, indeed.
