Maggie trying to figure out what I am saying to her.
Pepper is my BIL, Edward, little dog. Maggie is my wonderful dog and Waldo is Gil's dog.
If I had been either, my days would have been easier. I have been planting and doing more planting. I put out nine banana peppers and one bell pepper and a jalapeno pepper. Then I planted 3 Better Boys, 2 Early Girls, 1 German Queen and 1 Celebrity, 1 Cherry and 1 Roma tomato plants plus 2 crook neck and 2 straight neck squash plants. Then I did some seeds, basil, parsley, moon flower, Lilliput zinnia, cocks comb, mammoth sunflowers, mint, cypress and my purple morning glories. If you get tried reading can you imagine how this ole body felt.
Prince brought me in a truck load of straw and I will put that around my plants after I lay down newspapers to keep the weeds out. I learned this trick from P. Allen Smith on TV. Then if barring no bugs attack, I can lean back and just gather the goodies as they come along. Oh, I forgot to mention lettuce and spoon tomato seeds. Spoon tomato grow in a cluster like grapes and are really cute to decorate salads. These are some seeds I saved and I hope the little plants will appear. For years, after I grew the first ones, they would volunteer each year and take over more of the garden. Thus, since the garden is small, I had to clear them and save seeds. Maybe Pa Christian and Mother will look down and give the little seeds a bump start.
The contractor came by yesterday and the painters had missed a ten foot space at the high end of the house and this little triangle space up on the roof where the wing of the house intersects. So unless they come today, it will be next week as we are forecast three days of rainfall.
We have lots of green cherries on the trees so it will soon be cherry picking time. Nothing better than a cherry cobbler or a biscuit with cherry preserves. Cherry preserves we make are Christmas gifts to family and friends.
The Kitty Justice even though gardening is a four letter word (WORK) it is worth it to have plenty to eat and share with others. One of Kitty's pleasures is to share. What have your shared today?
