The Garden

Well, it's been a while so I wanted to pose SOMETHING.
Do you see this bush? That's no bush. That is a weed. A WEED! This is how much I've neglected my garden this year. I have let weeds turn into BUSHES! I pulled them, so it looks better now. Just wanted to share that.

This is what my garden looks like this year. We had high aspirations, and even planted a lot more than this in pots, but this is all that got in the ground. 10 or so tomato plants, and 5 or 6 pepper plants, which I was certain were chili peppers, but they grew into bell peppers. It's ok, I'm bummed about not having the chili's, but I do like bell's, so it's all good.
Here's the first pepper I picked. Sadly, from all those pepper plants, I've probably had less than 10 peppers. Another testament to my neglect.
On the bright side, somehow my tomato plants have been AMAZING. I know I've taken pictures of my bushels and bushels of tomatoes, but they must be still on the camera because I can't find them. I'm a little too disorganized right now to figure it out, and it's about bedtime, so I'm going to go. This is a random post, but like I said, I wanted to post something so you know I'm still alive over here.

We're adjusting to a new schedule, with Sage being in afternoon preschool now, and I have to take her there and pick her up. So, we're having to rearrange how we've been doing things. It's working out, but I think it's got my brain all in a jumble. That's all for now. Cheerio!

  2. can't imagine why you can't care for five kids and have an awesome garden . . . ;) next summer they'll all be just a bit older and it will all be different.
