So this morning, I decided to forego the walk. Actually, my friend Sugar asked if I'd like to meet her for a walk in Montrose this evening, so I'll get in a short walk (emphasis on "short"). So it's a lazy morning (as far as exercise is concerned). I slept in til about 8:30. Made coffee and wire brushed the pomegranates that I had fired last night, and they are happily tumbling in the tumbler in the kitchen for the next few hours.
My mom is coming over today. She's bringing lunch. Despite my insisting that I could fix us something here, that I had food, that I was able to get up and about, and that I am trying to eat healthy, etc. "I'll bring something light." God bless her. Our time together is cherished. The plan is that we will watch the final Oprah show together. : )
And finally, this morning, I went out to put the sprinklers on the garden. It was just a few short weeks ago, pre-surgery, that I was turning the soil, adding organic mix to my terrible dirt, watering, prepping the garden and planting because I KNEW that I wouldn't be able to dig for a few months. Well, the garden is doing really well, and I thought I'd put up some pics to show progress. I have tomatoes, zucchini, yellow squash, chinese peas, green beans, cucumbers, bell peppers, eggplant and a sunflowers around the border of the garden. Nothing is harvestable yet, but it's looking good. I need to weed (as the crabgrass is coming in again, but I can't bend. So maybe I can do it with that little "grabber" tool that my mom bought me?? I wonder?
Before you check out the photos though, I just wanted to add a request. I know there are a lot of you that are reading my blog. I really appreciate all the great comments on Facebook, Twitter, etc. I was wondering if you might consider following my blog? Just because I like knowing who's reading (nosy that I am.)
Okay, here are the photos. Have a beautiful day today....and remember to listen to your body and don't do too much! : )
|The garden monsters (notice the crabgrass peaking in)|
|The Chinese peas are starting to climb|
|I have bell peppers forming!|
|The full view, sort of. with the new pepper and tomato plant that I'll ask Neddy to plant this weekend. Notice the sunflowers that are about 5" high all the way down the right and in the front bottom.|
