Garden Update

in





First Sunday in Sept.- (Yes, I know it's Monday) - final pictures for the tomato contest over at The Examing Room of Dr. Charles. It was pouring here yesterday and the tomatoes took another beating. I like the Monet look of the first picture and the next one is my contender in the largest category( or is green an automatic disqualify?) - it's my prized Beefsteaks that I wait all Summer for - don't know if they will ever turn red before frost. I will probably try the old put them in a paper bag in a dark place trick. The next picture is one of my sensuous grapes next to an overlooked/overgrown cucumber - they didn't mind this years weather at all and they don't have to be staked!!! My basil did great as well. As for the Tomato contest-I think maybe the August pictures are my only hope.

Basil! I'll be right over. I'll whip up some homemade pasta and a pesto sauce. Heaven on earth! Do you have some wine?

Indeed, the basil looks great, can you send me a bunch? Ta.

Those look great. One of the things I remember most about being a kid was my grandfather (father's side) who had a huge garden that stretched down the hill behind his house for quite a ways. I used to love going down there to watch him work (although I hated having to help snap beans and shell peas), and it was one of those huge, magical places (to a child) where you could easily lose yourself.

Thanks for a post that reminds me of those great times:-)
