Hello gentle readers! It's good to be back in blogland. We had a wonderful visit with our kids and grandkids and when I get the almost 400 pics downloaded and organized I'll be posting new pics of the babies who are growing as fast as the weeds in my garden.
As you can see I have a little work to tend to before I can do very much of anything else. A garden filled with homegrown veggies is the most natural thing on earth to me. I grew up with fresh garden food that my Dad worked hard to plant and grow and reap the rewards of for our family dinner table. He would work the soil, plant the seed and then wait for nature to take its course always hoping the rain would come when it was needed. Many times though I did see him carry water to the tomato plants to give them at least a little drink. We had well water so there was none of this turning the water on and giving the garden a soaking. Besides, Dad wouldn't have wasted the water. Many years ago I bought him a little garden sign. I can't quote it exactly now but it said something that included "one is nearer God's heart in a garden than anywhere else on earth." I hope there's some little garden of some kind in heaven that Dad gets to help take care of. It sure would make him happy.
Dad would be proud of the bounty out of my garden; but I can't take any credit. All the credit goes to my dear Hubs for his hard work in making our garden grow. I think he did a splendid job this summer. We have all you see and he still has to pick hot peppers and cherry tomatoes!
I'm not sure what meat will be on the platter tonight for dinner; but I do know fresh green beans, coleslaw, and sliced tomatoes with cottage cheese will definitely fill up the rest of the plate!
