I have been so envious of everyone that has been harvesting their veggies for weeks already! I am so happy to report that I finally got to harvest from the potted Veggie garden. I am sure it would have been sooner if I hadnt been for that varmint Woodchuck that ate the entire first phase of output! I had to move all of the pots to a rock wall in my side yard so the little %^@$! wouldnt destroy the lot.
The first pickings - Big Bush Tomatoes and a couple of Bush Boys too. Also have Hot Potugal and Hot Banana Peppers with a handful of Supersweet 100's! This is a city harvest, so good thing we have the Farmer's Market ever weekend!
Our own harvest inspired lunch! Fresh tomatoes and peppers along with some Vermont cheddar and pepperjack and Perrier - What could be better?
I apologize that I havent blogged in forever and I have been slow to respond on the PM's. I have been super busy at work and bringing too much of it home with me. I will post a catch up blog as you can imagine Mother Nature waits for no one and the flowers have been putting on quite a show and I have been posting pics in my albums and want to showcase the lillies this year they were just grand.

Hey, weeds. Your maters look fab. My Mother goes out side when she sees him and chases him wavin' her fly swatter at him. It is quite a site. She yells at him to, says "I know where you live and you better move!" She is hilarious. Your kitchen is gorgeous...Sue

I cannot explain how very VERY jealous I am! I have only got a couple gypsy peppers so far, and about 5 banana peppers that are about done... Can I have a tomato, I don't think I will be getting any! *tears*

Having an awful tomato year! Have only had a few grape and cherry tomatoes and my friends, the raccoons, have helped themselves to the three ripe tomatoes in the pots on my patio! Even they are desperate for a good summer tomato. Not enough sun and heat (hard to believe) here this summer. Hope that you can reach some happy medium with work. The summer is so short here. Enjoy your bounty and yes, your kitched is georgeous!
