It just so happens that Charlie is following in the footsteps of his namesake, my Uncle Charlie, in his love of gardening.
Here is my little helper, face and feet covered in mud. Charlie insisted on wearing an old cowboy hat because I was wearing my straw hat.
We finished planting the tomatoes today and think we have almost 20 plants total. They are mostly different varieties so we can look forward to eating some gorgeous salads. While at Ace, Charlie picked up a sweet red pepper plant and said, "This is my favorite". So we planted that next to all our pepper varieties. Cucumbers are finished, too!
Instead of keeping the huge herb planters on the porch, I moved them inside the confines of the garden. They will get more sun and be protected by the little picket fence that surrounds. Summer means lots and lots of basil....and lots and lots of homemade pesto.
Tonight we sat around a bonfire and enjoyed the late spring night.
I was thinking about planting zucchini tomorrow but thinking that Kelly Mc may trade some for tomatoes or habeneros???
