Mr. Gibbs How Does Your Garden Grow?
May 19, 2008
Jeff has another garden growing this year. One year I swear we had a million cherry tomatoes, Eric would come in the house every day with them cradled in his t-shirt and he would be like "we got 50 or we got 75!" We had tons of cucumbers, and watermelons, I had a sign by the door for the UPS man, please take some watermelons...he took 2!
Now Jeff is a pretty good gardener, I mean heck he grew up on a farm. He has the growing part down, but the thinning out part, well not so good. You should have seen the radishes, they had no room to grow cause they were a jumbly mess, and well look at these carrots, they be gettin' a little action in the dirt, if you know what I mean!
So this year he thought he would grow a salsa garden. I got an awesome salsa recipe from my girlfriend Ruth (hey honey!) and so he thought how great it would be to have fresh veggies.
Well it was all good on paper, but basically the cilantro is done and pulled out, the onions are not done yet, and the tomatoes, are slowly ripening. So basically, I can't make salsa cause nothing is ready at the same time. Oh well it was the thought that counts right?
The tomatoes ain't very big, but man they taste good, nothing beats a tomato from the garden, oh and a side note to my BFF Tracy, no I did not use a glue dot to make them stay stacked, I was just very patient...ha!!!!
He also planted parsley, and I am thinking..do you really eat that? I thought it was mainly to garnish your plate and you just push it aside with your fork? Beans and wienies will look so much more elegant with a sprig of parsley on the side! Pardon, can you please pass the bread and butter?
But it is all for fun, who cares if we live in the desert, and he uses gallons and gallons of water, it looks nice out there all green, amongst the brown desert dirt. Ahhh!!! to live in PA or Canada where there is grass.
So I went to the baby shower yesterday, and Kim loved her baby album, of course I was so excited that she was opening it, I forgot to take a picture...oh well, she looks beautiful, and you will have to take my word on that.
Have a great Monday, and thanks for stopping in!
