I’m so excited that so many of you accepted the tomato edict! I have a confession to make. There are an awful lot of y’all who email me, tweet me and post here. You often use three different names and I just can’t keep track. Thanks to those who include their TT name when emailing.
The above picture is from one of you who can identify your garden or not. I’m receiving lots of great mail with photos of your gardens, your sunsets, etc. I hope to use them all eventually. Please don’t be slighted if I forget to use yours. I actually had to do a search to find this one. I don’t have a good system for this yet.
This gardener says:
“I wanted to thank you for inspiring me to put in my prettiest tomato garden ever! We don’t have a lot of sun at our house in Jasper, but have been carving back the trees a little. The raised beds are recycled porch screens filled with homebrewed bokashi compost and $1.57 bags of topsoil from Home Depot. We are on solid rock so raised beds are the only way for the poor plants to get a foothold. Last year we had 2 tomato plants for our empty nest, this year, your fault, we have eight! And my Jaune Flammé has 3/4″ baby tomatoes. Can’t wait to taste them.”
I’m relieved that even the most resistant among you have come around to the idea and are already see the benefits of this “magical” tomato therapy we are doing together.
Due to a stripped spigot, I am hand watering my guys with a super cute 2 gallon watering tin pictured above. Click the link for details and no this is not a paid endorsement. I just sort of love it.
My other edict was to walk for 15 minutes a day outside. I’ve been kind of successful at that. And I am ready to move my goal up a bit. I usually walk at the end of the day. Now I want to walk once in the morning and once at night. The lap Banjo and I walk for the minimal requirement doesn’t even really meet it unless we do a lap or two in the school parking lot. But now I am shooting for a morning walk and an afternoon walk. It’s a short stroll, not even a break a sweat thing usually. It’s about resetting the mind and getting some vitamin D not “exercising.”
So sad to hear about the train accident today up north. I hope all of my yankee frienemies are okay! Let’s keep the positive momentum going!
Now what’s on your mind today?
