Well, with more family in town (more of my wife's family, mine's all within a 5 mile radius), not a lot of gardening going on, though I hope tomorrow to get out for a bit. I'm sure I need to water, since I haven't removed the hoop covers yet. The wind has been a pain, but otherwise it's been dry and relatively sunny. No pictures to show since I haven't spent much time in the garden, but trust me that the tomatoes seem to be turning the corner, literally. They've started their 45 degree bend and are now climbing vertically again after being planted at an angle.
What I wanted to share is that we finally ate a salad from our garden. After robbing from the outside of many plants, you can hardly tell, which is a good sign. I didn't give them a haircut, but rather cut individual leaves from the stalk.
We had the great grandparents of our kids over for dinner and made my wife's patented baked-potato soup!No, unfortunately not with home grown potatoes, drat. Actually, none of the main course came from our garden since I yanked the green onions out and haven't planted any yet (to-do list item). The salad however, was amazing! Too bad I had to spend $2 on three small tomatoes that were a bit squishy. Come on tomatoes!
Otherwise I spent a great day off today taking the kids to their preschool classes. It was fun. I'd never been to the youngest's class, and this the second of the oldests classes. Good thing I went since the eldest will be "graduating" to kindergarden in a few weeks, hehe. It was fun. I spent the entire class manning the sensory table, which is a waist high bin filled with flax seed, a bunch of random containers and funnels. Flax seed is very cool feeling. The oil inside makes it almost slippery.
Anyway, it's been a while since I posted so I thought I'd give you an update. Enjoy your garden this weekend!
