Humpity Day: Pole Dancing…

Pole Dancing!

It’s the closest thing we’re going to get to pole dancing around here. Trust me on this.

Some of those tomatoes have been plucked.


We had a big rain yesterday. Big compared to having an extended dry spell and heat wave. Using the dog-water-dish-rain-gauge method of measuring, it looked like 2 to 2 1/2 inches. We don’t get too technical about these things. Any right-side-up pot without a hole in it will do.

Roma. She loves the pole!

I don’t have to water today.

This roma is in the ground. If you look deep, you can just see the bright red of two very large roma tomatoes. Plucked. Same day. Different lighting.

After the rain!

Red leaf lettuce. We can’t eat it fast enough.

End of story.

How does your garden grow? Tell me.

Is August not whipping by?

It is.

Here be Hump Day… after the rain.

  1. The National Weather Service has been teasing us, predicting rain almost every day and not delivering. Really, it’ll get overcast and we’ll hear a few rumbles of thunder, but no rain.

  2. We had 2 days of that wet stuff. We needed it though. We were as dry as burnt toast. Your veggies look great! We have broccoli, peppers, lettuce and thyme and onions growing. They’re all doing great! They’re not ready yet, though.
