Hey! School starts next week! Did you know that? But that's not what I'm here to talk to you about today. Today I want to discuss the importance of good nutrition.
No, seriously, school starts next week. I enrolled Maybelline in Freshman Academy today. Tomorrow will be Oatmeal Head's turn with 8th grade. And next Thursday they go back to school! Yay!!!
Now, to talk about food. Of sorts. Y'all have seen my tomatoes. I gave away another bag tonight, ones I picked this evening. Stupid maters. Like AsthmaGirl, I get queasy. Ew. But we grow them. And I did blanch, peel, seed and puree the bowl full I showed y'all. Then froze them for the winter when I need sauce. Too busy to use them now.
But today I'm combining Back/Front Yard Meme with a look at the tomatoes. I thought I'd start with a shot of the tomato plants from last month, then show you what they looked like today. Last month?
I know. They're little and far away. It's what I have. Trust me that they were green a month ago. Then today:
That's the long shot. Check 'em out up close:
Sad, huh? But they're turning out good tomatoes. I just have to make sure I pick them every day, and that I pick them just before they're ripe, or they split and the bugs attack. Poor things.
And you should see what's growing in my compost pile! I'll try and snap that tomorrow. There are softball size cantaloupes growing all OVER the compost. Way cool.
Hope you all are well. I'll be visiting soon. Thanks for stopping in!
Until I write again ...
