Tuesday Garden Party, September 6, 2011….Happy Birthday DH!

Wow I have been away so long.  3 weeks in South Carolina…the hurricane just missed us, then getting back and having so much to do!  DH watered  and my 82-year-old mother came over and deadheaded along with my sweet BF neighbor who greeted me when I got home with the yummiest oreo cupcakes.

I am overall disappointedwith the performance of our garden….well I should say the tomatoes.  In invested so much in them after attending a seminar this year really hoping, but let’s face it, here in Humboldt, on the coast, it is just darn hard to grow tomatoes without a greenhouse.

Getting back into the swing of things includes today is DH’s birthday along with his precolonoscopy day.  He did not plan that very well.  I spent a fair amoun of time ouside and probably need to pick more zucchini.  I think I will go check. 

In the meantime, here is what awaited me when I got home:

    Welcome back and our garden didn’t do good at all. I am pulling out stuff soon. Altho my back fence neighbor said they are finally getting cherry tomatoes. I’ll have to check mine since I’ve not watered in a week cuz nothing was growing and it’s been hot. Colonoscopy-oh joy! I don’t like them nor the prep the day prior! Necessary evil though. Take care and don’t over do it! Hugs!

    Look at that wonderful zucchini–I didn’t grow any this year and really missed it, so am considering adding it for next year’s garden. And your strawberries look gorgeous–mine didn’t produce a lot, and the slugs ate several before I could get to them. I kept thinking about you on the East Coast during the hurricane–glad to hear you made it back safely!
