i was supposed to accompany the gardeners out to the community plot this morning to help with the weeding…but it was raining.
so we came back and i had a lounge in bed….around 11am though, the sun came out and i was feeling mighty lazy so i gallantly offered to do the weeding on my own.
in the outdoor sauna called chicago in august ~~ i should have thought twice…here’s me at the end of 45 minutes of weeding
i don’t think i;ll be using that on my internet dating profile…here’s the basket of weeds i pulled
we are growing an artichoke and here is a nice photo of that…not sure we will ever see an artichoke from this plant but i think that’s why they have those jars of lovely marinated artichokes for sale at the grocery store…
here’s our most promising candidate…a melon…still green but won’t be long before i’ll be raving about the difference between home grown and store bought melons…
now while i was tying the cucumbers to the trellis, this fell off~~
i thought it was a very small watermelon….but when we cut it open it looked more like a swollen zucchini…we put it in a salad and it tasted like zucchini
my weed pulling experience was at least as strenuous as the 50 minutes i spend on the treadmill these days, i did have to quit because i was afraid i was going to pass out and nobody would find me!
did i mention the mosquitos???
