In The Garden - Yeah!

I had the granola for breakfast :-)

In the garden -

Our garden is small and is in our side yard. Our yard is a triangle. The side yard is the largest part of the yard. It has three pecan trees and two plum trees and contains Frank's workshop, dark room and shelters for the travel trailer, jon boat, lawn mowers and yard tools.

My pictures aren't the greatest today. Right click on the pictures and open in a new tab or window for a larger view... that way you won't have to reload this page.

Along the fence are onions amidst the dollar weeds. The tall plants are what are left of the collard plants. Frank gave a couple of the workers who did the driveway a bonus of a mess of collard greens. The next area has carrots and a few volunteer mustard green plants. The next row are the potatoes... they are coming along nicely. The red stuff is leaf lettuce. The poles mark the spots where the tomato plants will soon be planted. Later okra will be planted. I think Frank has given up on growing squash. They always get blossom rot. There will also be pepper plants... not as many as last year.

The tractor is normally down at Stubbs Acres (my parents old homestead). Frank brought it here to do a little maintenance. He managed to get some of the work done before his surgery. I think next is some good used tires.

These are the carrots. Frank saw these pictures and said it really needed weeding. It has been too wet to do that. More rain expected over the next few days.

It looked so pretty looking up through the plum tree.


We just got back from the doctor's office and Frank no longer has the tube. We have to change the bandage a lot as there still will be leakage until the trench the tube made closes. If Frank starts feeling bad and running a fever we have to call the doctor. Hopefully all will be fine. We get a little longer break in him seeing the doctor... next Thursday instead of Tuesday.

The doctor also said that Frank could do anything that he felt up to doing. Even weeding the garden and changing the oil in the car and most important dishes ;-) He washed a few dishes a day or so ago... it sure helped me out a lot. Thank's Hon!


Gardening is about enjoying the smell of things growing in the soil, getting dirty without feeling guilty, and generally taking the time to soak up a little peace and serenity. -- Lindley Karstens



  1. That's wonderful news about Frank's tube. I hope you both enjoy the rest of your week.

  2. Great news about Franks tube! Praying all will go well.

  3. That's great about the tube coming out and the dish washing. You must have him trained right!

  4. You have a nice garden there! We started putting down layers of newspaper with straw or dried grass clippings on top for our pathways. It's easier to get to the plants for weeding.
    Glad you hubby is doing better!
