Not so hot today.

Friday, August 05, 2011

Well, I did go out into the yard to do a little yard work. My hip/butt area hurts pretty bad today and I am not really sure why. It actually started hurting yesterday and I put ice , but it didn't really help. I worked outside about 45 minutes right after lunch today an then came back in. Even though the temp isn't high today, the humidity seems really bad.

My honey has gone for a work weekend at the hunt camp this weekend. He just got a cortisone shot in his left knee Wednesday and shouldn't being doing a great deal so I hope he behaves. I am going to get ice on again, so will check in tomorrow.

Eat healthy, drink your water, do some exercise, track your food and have a great rest of the day.

Nancy

    That humidity can really knock you on your butt can't it. I hope both you and your DH are feeling better soon. Have a wonderful weekend without the humidity hopefully.

    Hope you feel better, sweet Nancy. And you remind me that I need to call my Mom ... she and Dad live in Staunton. With all this heat, I should check on them better!

Relax and rest this weekend. Take good care of yourself.

Tall tomato plants

Thursday, August 04, 2011

My tomato plants are really tall. Compare the size of the plant to me. I am 5'3 so I am guessing the plants are at least 6' tall. I took some pictures of some of the tomatoes too.

Tall tomato plants:




Compare tomato to the size of my hand:

    wow, I love newly picked tomatoes. That's one thing I miss about my childhood, we could always go out door and pick a tomato in the summer.

We get such a small amount of sun that that don't grow very big and don't ripen.

    Wow, those are some big tomato plants. I don't think I've ever seen any that big before.

Hibiscus Christmas Tree

Tuesday, August 02, 2011

This hibiscus kind of looks like a Christmas tree. Look at the "star" on top and then all of the "ornaments" (buds getting ready to bloom) on the "tree"



After putting the pic on the blog, the "ornaments" aren't really as noticeable as in the actual picture.

My Tomato Pinwheel

Tuesday, August 02, 2011

I have been getting some strange looking things in my garden this year. I posted a few days ago the "tomato Face" and today I am posting my "Tomato Pinwheel". Look how the inside is separated from the sides of the tomato. Looks like a pinwheel to me. lol...lol...

    You have a productive garden! That's great!

I know what you mean about strange things that come out of there. Last year I tried to plant carrots--they came out like a hand altered by a mob. Scary stuff!!
