When I think of summer, I tend to think of long, slow, lazy days. Days spent lounging around the pool, with very little to do but sip from a glass of chilled white wine. Paint my nails. Read. That sort of thing.
Well, I’d better come swiftly down to earth with a bump, because that’s just not the way life is! In fact, with every passing year the summers seem to get busier and busier!
OK, so it starts with our huge gardens. The top garden, near the house, is full of a variety of squash plants. Butternut, crookneck, delicata, potimarron. Plus a couple of melon plants.
The bottom garden? Okra, 4 kinds of peppers, lettuce, sweet corn, 10 different types of tomatoes. And it’s all going great guns. And they all need weeding, feeding, neeming, watering. Whew!
Add Lujos to the mix, and the odd spot of photography and video, and it makes for a pretty busy summer. Oh yeah, and now pop in some visits from family, just in case we are in danger of getting bored!
