As with many of you across the country, we've been getting alot of rain lately. I don't remember the last time Matthew and I had to water. I feel like my tomato plants aren't growing at all, but I know they are. We at least have the heat to go with the rain, unlike alot of you. I am getting a little tired of showing the poor plants slowly grow, so I'll only show you one of the Iran pumpkin plants. Both are looking good and actually growing, though slowly too. (Maybe I'm impatient.)
The beans have been blooming this week. I think the blooms are beautiful. I've been thinking about planting another pot.
I can't stand when blogger loads my pictures wrong. Sigh. Anyway, one of the best gardening things that happened this week is that Matthew REALLY IS excited about the garden. For his party Saturday, one of my very best friends drove 100 miles with her little boy to come play. Alex and Matthew have so much fun. Before Alex could leave Matthew had to show him the "plants."
And Matthew had Alex sniff each and every pot! And Alex did! It was so cute!
The other thing that really tickled my heart was that Kirsten over at Sippin' Lemonade (or maybe it's Thanks for the Lemonade) mentioned that she was jealous of my purple green beans since all she had was plain green ones. I offered to share the wealth with her and she agreed to let me! It really tickled me pink and made my week! So thanks for the fun Kirsten! Matthew and I mailed them off Wed. You should get them by next week I'd think. As for my coworkers that I gave the beans to also, I haven't gotten any updates lately. Maybe I'll see for next week how it's going for them.
I hope the rest of you are having as many fun moments as Matthew and I are. Thanks for inspiring us to overcome the hurdle of moving, in the middle of planting season, Kim. It's really blessing us. As usual, if you'd like to read The Inadvertent Farmer's post, here is week 10. If you love great children's books, you better get over there soon and leave a comment in order to try and win one!
