1. A few years ago my neighbor JP introduced me to these little yellow tomatoes. I fell in love. Smitten with the tiny things.
Unfortunately, they cost $3.50 in the store for a tiny container. I think I need to try to grow them in my garden this year. My boys love them too. They are wonderful raw, or roasted on top of pizza!
3. Reid helped me plant some onions last month, and he was so delighted when I showed him they are up in the garden. I loved seeing him so excited to be growing food.
4. Thanks to those of you who have asked about the job. It's been going well. I've only been able to work about 6-7 hours a week, due to a conflict in schedule with the time my client wants to meet, and the time I actually have childcare. But aside from that it has been going well and is definitely challenging me, which is good.
5. I broke down and bought myself one of those foam gardening kneeling pads at the dollar store. Somehow I think this makes me less of a gardener. Like I'm less tough now that I have my cushy foam mat? Or maybe I'm just getting old since I need to pad my knees? Then I think, Oh don't be ridiculous, save your knees silly!
