D#1 and her BF (24 and 25 years old respectively) have done the craziest thing that someone can do during these crazy times, especially at their age. They put an offer on a house!! I am beyond proud of them but I've gotta say it took me by surprise. They hope to close by mid-August so we shall see how smoothly things go. Deep down I am thrilled since they are putting some more permanent roots down near us. That can change but for at least the next five years they will be here. Since college they'd been talking about moving to another state and traveling Europe or Latin America dreaming of their future together somewhere else, so this very much caught us (gleefully) off guard.
Anyway, things are going relatively smoothly, all things considered.
The garden is cranking out produce: zucchini, cucumbers, green beans (green, purple & yellow), herbs, the last of the lettuce and the beginning of the TOMATOES!!!! So excited for tomatoes. This week I started picking the cherry tomatoes (Bumblebee assortment variety) and I picked a red and a yellow Brandywine. D#2 and her BF are coming for dinner tonight and we are making home made pizza so I think one of the pizza's will be a margarita with slices of fresh tomatoes and fresh mozzarella and basil. YUM!
Here is a picture of the giant random sunflower in the middle of my tomato bed. Yesterday I found a huge bumble bee asleep in the middle of it. LOL!
How is your summer going? If you garden have you been getting tomatoes yet?
