Do you know what the peeps got me for my Gotcha Day? You don't? Okay, I'll tell you..... They got me a BRAND NEW CAR (think obnoxious game show host as you read that). Well, new to ME (Dachshund Mommy: US, Nola. New to US!) Yeah yeah, US and all that.
It's a 1996 Suburban (the price was right), rapper white and totally pimpin'. Now I can cruise along in style! It's in great shape for it's age!
|This thing is freaking enormous|
|The leather is really worn and soft.|
|Can I drive? Lilly Belle, Muffin and I want to go shopping!|
I want to show you all my garden! We're growing tomatoes (all volunteer), celery (fun fact: put the bottom of a celery stalk in a small bowl of water. It'll sprout and you can plant it), pumpkins, squash, beans, peas, parsley, carrots, fennel, purple basil, chives (I think), radishes and I think we've got a few peppers.
A few things got damaged from the 2 frosts we had, but it's been freakishly warm here, even for Florida. Mom's been going around in shorts, tank tops and flip flops and is still sweating. I want cold weather!
|Monster tomato plants|
|Radishes. This is the second batch of em.|
|Peas, with beans next to them (beans are on the left)|
|Lets keep going|
|Front row L to R: peas, beans, squash and pumpkins|
Back row L to R: carrots and radishes
|One of the squash flowers. It's FULL of blooms|
Our secret to such big plants? A garden tilled and fertilized by a pig, and then fertilized by chickens.
