Kitty Litter

Copper River Tomato

Brandywine Heirloom Tomato

The tomatoes and tomatillos are now in the raised beds.  Just in time because the weather is quite warm this week.  I'll put the eggplant in later today. Vegetables like loose, well draining dirt (so do cats, it seems). My only pest (so far) is Linus, the cat next door.  My dirt is so sexy I have him convinced it's kitty litter. 

It's not.  And I sometimes want to shoot his little paws for digging in my beds. 

I won't.  Shoot his paws.  I pulled the bok choy (that had bolted while we were at the beach).  We ate our bok choy for lunch and a yummy easy cauliflower dish that I made with diced up ham leftover from Easter dinner.  I'll give you the recipe as soon as I catch up from Spring Break '11.  

We had so much fun.  Today I've been spot-weeding.  And watering the fig tree.  Dr. Gooch can't figure out where to put it.   A Fig tree gets pretty large so we must choose wisely.

One more thing.  It is funny to me how winter truly makes me forget how LUSH it gets when the ground warms.  I love it.  It makes me feel like our acre is 10 and our neighbors are that many miles away (except of course for Linus).
