Can't keep a secret...
...thanks, Chicken Mama, for outing me! Yes, it's my birthday... so what?! I'm now have feet firmly planted in the 40's, so what of it LOL?!
I've probably used this photo before, that's me at age 2. I obviously need to ransack my mom's photo stash when I get home next time, I need more variety!
I got this card from my mom, she knows me so well :)
So what did I do today? Nothing earth shattering, that's for sure. I did some garden chores - I'll fill you in on that in a moment, but I did get to go to the library and coffeeshop all by myself, and that's a fantastic present in my book! After that it was all downhill, I spent the afternoon cleaning my desk, files and rebalancing our 401K, no kidding LOL. Hubby's working nights so I had to slog through making dinner for the kids, too. I will however, treat myself to an early bedtime for the kids and starting a new book for me tonight!
Other news: oh yes, count them... that's now THREE herding dogs, and still no sheep. Ha, I'm petsitting a friend/neighbor's dog, although it's really not difficult at all since we love Neptune and he's a good boy :)
I spent yesterday evening re-spraying tomatoes after a day of rain. The Brandywines are still holding strong, but the Amish Paste are now a lost cause and were completely ripped out this morning.
It's okay though, because I hear 41 is the new 31, I decided that beans are the new tomatoes, and planted some in the blighted bed :) I'll be alright :(
I did get a harvest today, a little of this, a little of that...
Remainder of the almost-ripe Amish Paste, Red Zebras, Persian Pickling cucumbers that were hiding and got too big, and just a handful of beans.
I spent another 30 minutes or so just tidying things up, removing bird netting from maturing plants and re-tying peppers, since the temps are supposed to be near 100 the next 2 days, so I wanted to get this stuff done.
These are my Poblano peppers... aren't they freakishly tall?!
