Getting Better and Catching Up.

So who takes care of Mom when she is sick? In my house, the answer is usually Dad. But what happens when Dad is still sick, has pink eye, and has to work? Yep, we were pretty much a wreck for a few days. The kiddos tried to help, but they can only do so much so lots of stuff just didn't get done. I have a house to clean, laundry to fold, errands to run. You get the picture. So that's what I have to focus on today.

On the garden front, my high yield Dual peas have provided me with two good sized bags of peas for my freezer. And they aren't finished yet!! My tomato plants are almost five feet tall (??!!??!!) and really aren't showing any sign of slowing down but are still carrying green tomatoes. It's time to harvest my lettuce and try out Moey's salad. And the broccoli and cauliflower are doing very well despite my dire predictions of heat damage. Have I ever mentioned that I am really loving the seeds that I got from Vessey's. Canada must know something that Burpee doesn't. :-)

Well, I am off to a busy day. Hope that you have a great one!

Well take it easy and try not to wear yourself out. (I know, easier said than done!) Well then, how about a little prayer? Lord, I lift up to you your servant Kathy and I ask that you restore her to health. Remind her that your grace is sufficient for her. Comfort her with your everlasting love. In Jesus name. Amen.

I hope that you all continue to improve and are back to full health soon! Try not to over do it, at first anyway. I'll lift your family in my prayers!

Your garden sounds wonderful ;-)

You are really inspiring me with your garden! I hope next year I'm as successful. This season, I'm relying on farmer's markets, etc.
