The last two weeks have been bit rough around here, first our beloved dog Pepper died, my 85 year old father in law who has been in the hospital since August after having quadruple hart by-pass was not able to come home for Thanksgiving and my employer decided to cut employment by 20%. Yesterday I said goodbye to many good friends after working together for many years, going back to work on Monday will not be the same.
This morning I decided to get up before sun up, made some coffee and went out to the garden with my dog Rosie, it was so peaceful. There is nothing like a garden at sun up, it sure puts everything in perspective.
I spend the rest of the day doing what we gardeners do, pulling weeds, cutting back over grown plants, changing pots and much more. It was a great day.
My herbs and tomatoes are doing well, the tomato plants are full of flowers and already have some small fruits. The herbs needed some prunning, specially the sweet basil
I am getting some flowers from my “Yesterday, today and tomorrow” plant, by Christmas it should be full of flowers, this year looks like is going to be a great one.
A friend of my from Vermont mailed me a bag of seed last October and did not tell what they were “Is a surprise” he told me. This is what I have after two months, I recognize the marigolds and hollyhocks the rest look like weeds to me. I’ll let you know.
Today I decided to start composting I’ll let you know how it turns out in future posting.
