Courtyard and Ripe Tomatoes

Although the tomatoes above may not look ripe, they are a yellow variety we got from Terrapin Farms and are perfectly ripe! We picked them today and they were delicious! We also picked another zucchini, and more will be ready next week.

Also today we finished clearing out the grass and weeds from the courtyard beds. Much of it is now empty, but it gives us room to put new plants in. The bed below left has delphinium, mint, chamomile, tulips and forget-me-nots. The bed below right has corn, sunflowers, and lilies. We're glad to be done with the big tasks and so excited about how much the plants are growing!

  1. Mmmmmmm -- wish I could join you for a salad! Yum.

    As usual, I am very impressed with all of your accomplishments. So, even without your having extended extra efforts in creating this beautiful garden, your work ethic, your compassion, and always "walking the extra mile" to help others, gives me a gargantuan sense of pride that you are a part of our family as well as being my friend.

    With love,
