But it's hard to do anything, or go anywhere -- because your garden is holding you prisoner.
How can you leave when the tomatoes are FINALLY coming in? After all those months of patiently tending, and weeding, and watering -- YOU GET TO EAT BACON, LETTUCE AND TOMATO SANDWICHES...
|Really. Isn't this the reason you planted a garden in the first place?|
|Sometimes, I do a gourmet twist -- with a nice kaiser roll, (grilled in bacon grease...don't pretend your mouth isn't watering...)|
|And, OF COURSE -- the first BLT's must be paired with sweet corn. AHHHHHH -- Heaven!!|
Thankfully, the deer ate their fill of green beans and lettuce, so they decided to let us have the cabbage and the peppers. In August, John's baskets are full.
|My sister Ronda and Dean take their garden so seriously -- they sell produce at the local Farmer's Market!|
|Lilly, not really interested in tomatoes -- but loving the idea of a marshmallow gun...|
And you would think we'd have a good understanding of all this....yet we always seem to be planning a trip in August.
When it comes to gardening -- just like most things, timing is everything...
