It's A Jungle Out There



Post-Wisteria Pictures

Been out of state-- and off-grid-- for ten days now. Whilst away I had a friend come water my garden for me (THANKS M!!!). She was able to reap a small bit for her gracious help-- go HERE to take a gander.

And now, gander at what she dinna pick:




We'll start gnawing on the stuff above tonight, and the following in the coming days:








I won't bore you with the weighing details [seeing as I haven't yet tended to that task. Ahem...] but in stead allow my photography to send you to the arms of Morpheus.

Slainte, folks!

Lookin' good m'man. Alas, my 'maters fizzled. They got two feet tall, and depsite all the H20 with which they were lavished, nary a fruit appeared. And now they succomb to the frying effects of the south Texas sun. Next year, I plant them sooner! However, we did get a bumper crop of squash, cukes, sweet corn, snap beans, zuchinni... And the watermelons are volleyball size. Some will be just right for Independence Day celebrations...

SciFi-- it was indeed! We just finished meatball-stuffed bell peppers with veggies baked in marinara sauce. VERY NICE to come home to! Hey, thanks for coming by!

Well Mayberry, caint nothin' beat a homegrown watermelon on independence day. You're making me miss the extra month head-start the coastal region gave me... but not enough to head back jest yet! Hehehe!!! Hey, bro, thanks for the patronage!!

Thank you, Lady Pearl! It's tasting mighty fine...

Lady Diane-Sage, it was a time away from this. The land is magical, a true Pagan Place... I could go on, but words are inadequate, truly...

Ken-- true, m'man! Amazing how not watching the growth on a weekly versus daily basis shows just how fast it really is growing!

Thanks, everyone, for coming by and taking the time to comment! Y'all have a great day!
