In the garden.....8:40 PM
It's past 8pm and I am sitting outside, under my canopy in the backyard. It's dark, but it's a stunning night, not a single cloud in the sky, 108 degree weather earlier and it feels sooooo good now that the sun has set.
There is a game of badminton going on right in front of me, hubby and the kids are playing in the dark, with a few lights, but it's hilarious watching and hearing them play. Giggles and loud cackles reverberate through the neighborhood, signalling the beginning of summer nights and fun time spent outside.
We've had a fantastic weekend!
A lot of yard work has been done, things moved around here and there, mowing, water sprinklers, grilling and gaming.
I think it's what summer is all about. Minus the crazy high temps which make it very hard to be out here for longer than 10 minutes at a time.
I've got my veggie garden going again because it was so successful last year. For so long I was terrified, intimidated and just overwhelmed with the thought of gardening and especially growing my own vegetables. I couldn't keep the simplest of plants alive, but I guess I moved past that , even my hubby is impressed with my progress, and honestly, what's better than homegrown goodness??
I thought tonight I would show you a little of what I'm growing.
Right now I have two different lettuce varieties.....here's my bibb lettuce
