I'm usually pretty active on my groups - I just wanted to let you all know - I'm here and I'm doing great! I've been way too busy with being a mom, my job, being a wife and an avid gardener. We are at the height of gardening here in July - trying to keep up. I planted over 60 types of tomatoes this year and they are now popping all over the place. YAAAAAAYYYYYY!!!!
I love gardening - neighbors saw all my tomatoes and said, "you're gonna have a lot of weeding to do" but anyone who knows me knows that I love being outside - any excuse and Weeding is relaxing for me. I love being on my hands and knees, in the middle of the garden, where no one can see me. I don't think - I just enjoy the sounds of the birds (I can even hear the hummingbirds buzzing above me), I love the smell.
Have you ever noticed the strong scent of tomatoes is on the vine itself? I come in smelling like tomatoes. Lol!
So, I'll be more active on here when my garden slows down but for now, I must keep my garden happy so that it keeps us happy. I made homemade guacamole yesterday - the tomatoes, cilantro and onion came from my garden. It was fabulous - if you want the recipe, remind me and I'll post it on here. My husband and I sat on the deck and snacked on it. He said, he could just eat it with a spoon. Avocados are a great price right now and perfect ripeness.
Enjoy your weekend everyone! I am!
