Hitchin' a Ride
This picture was taken circa June 29. Not even a month ago.
The peas are long gone. They were smart. When it got hot, they curled up, wilted, and died.
Kind of like what I've been wishing to do throughout this hellishly hot weather.
But apparently pumpkins would thrive in hell.
Here's that same pumpkin now--circa July 20.
Needless to say the old pot garden is hitting its mid-summer stride.
The sunflowers are opening.
The socks are rocking.
Those white spindly flowers are alyssum growing out of the sock. I believe alyssum is meant as a ground cover. It's kind of cool watching them adapt to being a hanging plant.
The grape tomatoes are slowly chugging along.
And finally, the cukes are growing!
It's my first year planting cukes and I'm loving them! The cucumber in this picture was also photographed on Sunday. Today--two days later--that cucumber is now twice as big. Amazing!
I'm dreaming of pickles.
Speaking of dreaming, I think I'm off to do some pre-sleep.* I didn't get home until 11:45 p.m. last night.
The time and a half will be nice, but not having to eat dinner, make lunches for the next morning (Dr. Mad Scientist forgot), and shower past midnight only to have to be awake by 6:30 a.m. the next morning would have been nice too.
But the Case from Hell has been throughly briefed--now we just wait til oral arguments in October. Which will have nothing to do with me! Woo hoo!
*This is what you do when you're my mother--you come home from work, fix dinner, eat dinner and fall asleep on the couch snoring while everyone else is trying to watch TV. You only get up in order to get to your bedroom to sleep the rest of the night. Because if you don't get that pre-sleep, how are you supposed to get to sleep at night? Ha ha!
