Not to toot my own horn or anything, but look what we grew!
The other things we are growing in our garden are peppers, seen above, and a couple basil plants. They are growing modestly well, but nothing as blog catching as the tomatoes. The only sad thing is that on Wednesday, we are leaving for a 3 week vacation. Will all our hard work be rotting on the ground or drowning in viney weeds? We're crossing our fingers that we will get to partake in home grown goodness when we return. Jason has set up this automatic drip hose so they certainly won't die of thirst.
Another garden surprise are these lovely things. They are several feet tall and growing all over the place. I've never seen anything like them before! They are in several different shades of pink. We know the previous owner LOVED pink. Just check out blog posting 1 if you have forgotten. I'm definitely digging it here in the yard, and not on my walls.
Neat looking beetles apparently like pink too!
We also have some of these
some of these
and some of these (but probably less of these than we did before because I think I might have pulled some before they flowered, thinking they were weeds. oops!). We have these in purple and white.
It took me all Sunday and part of Monday, but I finally finished these dining room curtains! I really should have been packing or cleaning or something, but I have had the pieces cut out and neatly folded in the closet for weeks, and I decided now was the time to finish them, probably to avoid packing and cleaning. Tada! Unfortunately, my bags didn't pack themselves while I was making them, so I'd better go get started on that. Check back in for blogging from the road!
