I've got 6 yellow beans!!!
Ha ha ha! It is probably the first 6, and the last 6 as well! I planted just way too late!!! Oh well...come October 15, I will be ready to blast out my yard with my Cleomes, my red and white zinnias, some tomatoes, green beans, and maybe some more broccoli ( I had planted it last spring, but I want MORE)! I was reading somewhere about planting potatoes (which I won't), and the use of old tires to protect them from the wind. I guess you keep adding another tire each time your plant grows up too high and filling that tire with soil, until you have added a total of 3 tires. Interesting. Sometimes I get an urge to move all my succulents and use my tires for other gardening ideas, but then I talk myself out of it. Mostly because I am lazy, and also because I like my unique little succulent gardens! LOL.
Today I stayed busy with tooth cleaning and my routine MD visit. In between I had lunch with my Mom and daughter. We were excited because our Jewish Deli had cabbage soup today! Normally they only serve it on Wednesdays, but I think so many people LOVE it, they do it more days now! Yeah for us, because we didn't get to go yesterday. It was grand. It has beef in it (I know...not vegetarian), but still a very light lunch, with only about 4 chunks of beef in all.
This evening I get busy and decided to sort of make a prototype for a Halloween ATC, which you can find on my ATC BLOG. I know, it is like Halloween in July, but last evening it got so COOL outside following a rain, that I had a heavy urge to make fall crafts! EEEEEEEE!
Have a wonderful Friday!
