We went through almost a month of no substantial rain and I was having to water the garden every day. No matter how much I watered (and I wasn’t watering enough), it’s just not the same as a good, drenching rain. Since late last week, we’ve had rain almost every day. The garden has turned into a jungle! The weeds are growing. The tomatoes are growing. Everything is growing . . hopefully, the snakes are not growing but I know they’re in there.
Every day I get this bucket full, except the days I pick green beans and then I get this bucket full of green beans and dump it and then fill it up with tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini and yellow squash.
See that zucchini in the front. It was normal size one day but I couldn’t reach it without walking through the zucchini, which have gotten huge and have prickly leaves. I had on shorts and flip flops . . I know . . I said I wasn’t going to do that after seeing the snake, but I did. But, I wasn’t going to wade through that zucchini jungle with flip flops. The next day, I forgot to look for it and the next day . . it was huge! It may be too big to use or I may be able to remove the seeds, slice it and dry it to make zucchini chips.
Vince told me that he only wants tomato/cucumber/white bread sandwiches for lunch. I said “Forever?” and he said “No, just during tomato season!” So, planning lunches around here is easy . . til Vince gets tired of tomato/cucumber/white bread sandwiches! Wonder if he likes them enough to have them for dinner too? 🙂
