The garden, searching for the pumpkin and lunch today
- When I stepped out of my car on Saturday morning at Doug's garden, in search of tomatoes and Old 200 Poundy, this quiet scene presented itself. Lovely and serene (click to enlarge.) I located the tomatoes for sale in the garden shed nearby, but no one seemed to be around. Eventually the nice lady who works there came up from the garden to help me.
- She speaks mostly Spanish, but eventually understood that I also wanted to see the pumpkin and lead the way. There it is, Old 200 Poundy, looking as if it is not quite at that weight yet. I'll keep up with its progress and report back.
- There are lots of flowers around, too. I loved these ruffley looking lilies, basking in the morning sun.
- And I got my tomatoes. There is nothing like a summer tomato. There have been mostly sandwiches made from them, but I'm also thinking gazpacho. Yum.
