It’s Spring Again

It was early last year that Gpa and I found the community garden.  It took a while for me to decide if I was going to have a plot.  There is a lot of work involved and the plot is 10×20.  I thought it would be too much for us.  It was, I gave the food pantry as well as friends and neighbors the excess.  It was very nice to be able to do that.

Getting the tomato babies planted.  Got a few strawberries, trying a couple of rhubarb for Lillie.  Most definitely cucumber for pickles, and at the plant sale I hope to get basil, eggplant, okra and peppers.

Lillie and a friend has a plot now and Gena has planted a few things at her house.

It is so exciting to see new life bursting out all over.  And even more exciting to see others giving it a try too.

It is a comfort to see all the flowers and trees blooming, witness to life going on.

Tomato Babies

During the time that Gpa was sick.  I took a moment to plant some tomato seeds.  I didn’t know that I’d be a couple of weeks early.

I had helped with transplanting seedlings last year so I got three cups filled with dirt, made three rows in each cup and put what I thought was 3-4 in each row.

I must not have because 25 or more plants came up in each cup. So I went to the community garden and divided up 40 of them.  I went to get a couple of clear containers to use as a green house.

I feel like an irresponsible mother.  The number of tomato babies is overwhelming and I want to go see the grandbabies!  I’m going to have to get a babysitter!

They are outside in the sunshine, under the containers.  They seem to be happy.  Exif_JPEG_422
