I just had a bagel with cream cheese and one of my cheat tomatoes. It was really good. You know how everything is “gluten free” these days that has always been “gluten free”? Gluten FREE! is screamed from so many products these days I just ignore it. Then I bought some bagel thins in the healthy section of Kroger and when I got home I noticed they were gluten free. Well, crap. Bagel need to have gluten they are bagels. So I knew I had wasted my money. I tried them anyway and they are really good. They are made with sprouted wheat and chia seeds. So I will be buying them on purpose time. I mention all of this because it’s almost BLT season and for those of us who live alone, that brings with it The Bread Crisis. If you buy a loaf of bread, it goes bad before you use it all. If you buy individual buns one or two at a time, you run out before the next grocery store trip. If you freeze a loaf of bread they stick together and get freezer frost. This packet of six bagel thins are just right for me.
I’m also talking about good things because THE CRAZY is back. I haven’t been taking my supplements regularly. I have been drinking the sanity water. I’ve been drinking wine. I have not been eating properly. I have been down with some sort of allergies or something for days. Which led to me getting up to toast a bagel and feeling like I was going to do the ugly cry and/or have a panic attack.
So I need to take my own damn advice and do some tomato therapy. Even if today it is just, eat the tomato.
I did finally get some baking soda to spray on my poor cheat plant that has more tomatoes than leaves these days. And I did put some in the watering can try to make the fungus less happy to be there. I haven’t done a lot of watering because of THE CRAZY and not feeling well in general. The tomatoes themselves are doing well. My mystery tomato plant that I thought was yellow pear once home noticed it was label as a yellow brandywine, looks to me like it really is going to be yellow pear. It is struggling with the damn fungus as well though.
Oh I also had home grown lettuce on my bagel. It’s quite tasty! I do hate washing the leaves though.
So there is my gardening confessional this week. I haven’t done a lot, but I am going to try to do better.
What’s happening in your garden?
