My blogging routine has gotten disrupted by early doggie and garden demands. By the time I have finished feeding and watering and the consquential showering, I am off on another task for my day, leaving the blog unattended.
Today I asked Dave to water... But on the other hand, I have already been to the Emissions Testing station (7 am) and finally got my car to pass the test, hurray! in time for the required sticker. Doesn't sound like a big deal but I have been trying to get this done for a month, with one failure and a large repair bill in the middle. Now I can rest easy, knowing I am in compliance and won't get ticketed.
OK So here's what has been happening at Casa Johnson
We are harvesting tons of tomatoes and green beans everyday. I am giving them away as I pick.
My fig bed wins Best of the Yard honors, with tons of flowers and fig trees loaded with fruit. Yay!!
A close second is the Japanese garden aka Koi Pond garden. There isn't a square inch available for anything in this bed.
I've had mixed results with the Proving Ground bed. 47 feet of ups and downs. I am focusing on the ups, and learning what works and what not to bother with. I vote for more zinnias next year, as well as begonias and cosmos. The coneflowers are great too. Pink and yellow and white.
I can't seem to motivate to make something arty...so much fun stuff going on with the girlfriends and the remodeling and arranging furniture over and over again.
Now it seems we have finished a lot of what kept me hopping and that even includes having 15 pieces in a the Blue Ridge Art Center show in Blue Ridge GA.
After thinking about all the stuff that has been going on here lately, I am ready for a morning nap!
And what a nice cool room to have it in.
If I get back to work soon, I'll post the results here. I promise.
