Hi everyone! Today it’s my turn to host…Valerie, that is.
I’m not sure what all of you are up to these days, but late May through early June are gardening days here on our farm. We live far enough north that our vegetable bedding plants (tomatoes and the like) don’t go in the ground until at least mid-May. In practicality, it’s even later because our soil is heavy clay and it’s impossible to work it when it’s rained recently.
However, the tomatoes are finally planted! And here is my helper (my 22-month-old granddaughter) helping her grandfather get some water on those new plants.
We also picked our first garden strawberry yesterday.
And the peas are starting to climb their trellis. Other seeds are sprouting. Now to keep ahead of the watering and the weeding!
On our farm, we believe in fresh homegrown food whenever we can, so we tend to grow a lot. Yes, this takes time away from my writing but, being as I write about characters who garden and farm, I just call it book research!
How about you? Do you grow vegetables? I’d love to hear about your gardening adventures.
So it’s been another fun week at Inspy Romance.
