“Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat. In our mad rush for progress and modern improvements let's be sure we take along with us all the old-fashioned things worth while.” Laura Ingalls Wilder

Hoping to See ..


... a sea of red soon.

Yesterday I was watering the garden .. a 'chore' I enjoy doing by hand.  I had hopes of setting up a sprinkler system .. maybe another year .. but for now .. hand watering affords a better look-see at what's doing well and what needs to be pulled out of the garden on a more frequent basis.  And .. I spied a few tomatoes turning red!  So excited as the last two summers we've only had green ones picked just prior to the first frost.  Seems our oh so wet dreary spring has turned into a hot dry summer which has been good for the peppers and tomatoes.

So glad to hear that your tomatoes are ripening up for you, some of ours finally are as well. Enjoy those tomatoes.
