Fun in the south Florida sun!

Hi again!!! I found my largest eggplant starting to touch the ground yesterday and slid a giant seagrape leaf under the area to keep it off the dirt! I know I need to mulch, but I am just not getting it done due to time constraints and lack of funds! My neighbor had a ton of these seagrape leaves, so I try adn put them to use as I ee fit! They make a wonderful palette to paint on also (acrylics or oils). I will post a pic I have where a friend painted a lighthouse for me, and my Mom has a floral one I painted her in acrylics about 5 years ago. But back to the subject...below is my eggplant, Mr. Big Dude!!!

Another view of my flower tires! They sure are gorgeous to see out my kithen window.

And here is the funniest looking flower on my pink-eyed peas! I suppose it will open up more...not sure as this is the first time I have grown these! Isn't it interesting looking???

Here are my lovies playing tetherball and blowing bubbles outside in the sunshine!!! Life is good!!! Thank God!

Happy hump day! Half way through the week already!

Wow! That eggplant looks amazing! If you know how to cook one well, I hope you will share the info. I am a horrible eggplant cook, though I love them! jan

I like how the tetherball pole is anchored in the tire. Now that I'm going to be a grandma I need to learn about these things. :)
