Last week it rained all week- finally made it to the garden…

Cherry tomatoes are full. Have Sunrise Bumblebee (yellow with stripes), Kiss the Sky (large ones), Super Sweet 100 (little red ones) and Black Cherry (med. red with dark color). We are going to turn some of these into tomato juice and can it.

This is just some of the 15 different varieties we planted. We put up 9 quarts of tomatoes today and have several pans still left. The hardware store was out of lids for my jars so I have to hunt some down. Most of our Tomatoes are heirloom (Brandywine Sudduth, Brandywine Black, Nepal, Indira Ghandi Black, Red Pear Grant Gran Sasso, San Marzano, Rutgers, Cherokee Purple, Kellogg’s Breakfast, Goose Creek and Black Krim). I have fallen in love with Dwarf Wild Spudleaf- not a lot of juice so it makes a really nice BLT (great flavor too).

We also got eggplant-looking at eggplant parm recipes, lots of peppers, they are heirloom as well (Nadepeno, Jimmy Nardello, Purple Beauty, Cajun Bell and Zulu), onions that are so sweet along with zucchini- on to more bread- good thing it freezes well (yes I have had zucchini casserole several times).

These plants came from a local man who sells them- they were about 2 inches tall and very spindly- they are all 6-7 ft tall now. Garden did well this year.

Finally got to say..”I do!”

This is a life of extremes
Both sides are slippery and enticing
These are my places off the rails

And this, my loose recollection of a falling
I barely remember who I failed
I was just trying to keep it together

This is my first wave of my white flag
This is the sound of me hitting bottom
This my surrender, if that’s what you call it
In the anatomy of my crash

And I keep on smiling
Keep on moving
Can’t stand still

Me, the notorious bottom dweller
Me, the ceiling-less brave explorer
Lured to the ends of overwhelm

This is my first wave of the white flag
This is the sound of me hitting bottom
This my surrender, if that’s what I call it
In the anatomy of my crash

And I keep on smiling
Keep on moving
Can’t stand still

Such pretty forks in the road
On this continuum I’ve been bouncing
Life flashing promise before my eyes

This is my first wave of my white flag
This is the sound of me hitting bottom
This my surrender, if I can bare it
In the anatomy of my crash

And I keep on smiling
Keep on moving
Can’t stand still

Kim had her surgery Thursday and was home Friday. She is resting and sleeping due to pain meds. She can’t eat meat or hard food for 5 weeks as she can not swallow well due to swelling in the throat. Please take a few minutes to send her a get well card as talking is difficult.

I finally meet Bennett Fullerton who is 3 months old…

We had a picnic outside- Taco Tuesday! Maddox, Tommy And Bennett.

In November, Tommy told me he wanted a typewriter- he saw one in “Men In Black”- became curious and told me “it will help make me think better because I have to know what I am going to say before I put my words down”. Well when you are that curious and thoughtful- you know we had to find him a typewriter (Hard to find decent typewriter today at a decent price- I got one too so we are now going to be penpals). This is what I got back last night.

I don’t normally (almost never) post political things- but this is more than politics and I am so excited. Sad it took the Supreme Court in 2015 to say Gays could marry and now in 2020- they can work without being fired because they are gay. People should stop hating- after all, Jesus said- “Love thy neighbor”.
