Tomatoes and Trips

These are my tomato plants. They are 8 feet tall–no joke Husband measured them. I’m off to Chicago for a long weekend. I expect that while I’m gone all of the tomatoes will ripen.

*Sigh*

These are my babies–I know they know I’m leaving.

The “fertilizer” was the clover planted in this bed last year and turned over in the spring. I watered them deeply when I transplanted them from the pots I grew the seeds in and I think I watered them twice from the hose this year.  8 frigging feet tall. The cherry tomatoes are as big as plums.

Go organic and you too can, have many tall plants with hundreds of tomatoes.

Talk to you when/if I get back. I may have shorter hair by then.

Chore Girl!

I should be wearing a cape, as I’ve found myself thrust into the role of my dreaded alter ego: Chore girl.

Today, after pilates, I put up a cord of wood, mowed the front triangle, moved the swing, mowed that part of the yard, washed dishes, put laundry away and that’s all off the top of my head. I don’t think I stopped moving for more than ten minutes today.

I was once again reminded of what I know to be true—if I try to put off writing, writing will not be denied. On a brief break, I penned a 53 word story for a contest. After I put up some more wood, I polished and sent it off. It’s not even a mental ‘I must write,’ it has become a physical craving.

Not a bad problem to have.

So much more to finish before I head off to Chicago. I’m so excited! Back to mowing! I hope your last two weeks have been great!
