Tomatos 101

Over the years, mom and I have struggled with our tomato gardens.  In Spring, we're always so excited to get outside & play in the dirt.  We attempt to out guess Mother Nature!.....hmmmm, that really never works in Oklahoma.  This year, mom took the time to start our plants from seeds.  It was so neat......I bought packages of seeds to donate to the yearly garden and several weeks later I was handed the prettiest little baby tomato plants I'd ever seen.  So, here's where this story is going.....during the planting and giving away of mom's tomato plants, several plants were forgotten about.  When we realized what had happened we both quickly planted and potted these little plants anywhere and in anything available.  The picture you're looking at is one of the forgotten plants!  And believe me when I say "forgotten", it truly has endured being totally ignored! This is where I get to brag on this one, of several,  forgotten tomato plants. I took this picture just a few minutes ago......what a beautiful site, a plate full of sweet juicy tomatoes!  So, here's my new theory about tomato gardening,....grow from seed or purchase your plants, put them in a protected corner of your flower bed, plant in early summer, here and the ground, in a big pot, in a little pot, and water when needed.  The strong will  survive and the weak are gone, like bam....gone!  Yikes, I guess that's why it's really nice to grow from seeds!  (It's cheap!)  Well, that's my updated thoughts on tomatoes, 911, oops, Tomatoes 101!

peace & love to all,

What a VIEW!

What a perfect way to end a perfect day!  (I wish you could see the earthy fall colors glowing from this October full moon) you see a witch?  Or...... maybe a big black cat?  Just joking! heehee  I'll let your imagination run wild with the spooky witches, goblins & stuff!  Although it is that time of year!  Fall is here and I hope you remember that next week we set our clocks back one hour!!!!!  Fall back.....Spring forward!  So on 11-7-2010, we will loose one hour.  That really messes everyone up with getting to church on time!  So, we'll game plan right now to do better! BETTER...... isn't that all we really want to better?  No matter what it is.....a better mom, wife, caretaker, sister, painter, artist, cook, carver, knitter, writer,  musician, friend, okokok.......whatever it may be......we just want and need to be better!  I think that's a very healthy state of mind!  What a challenge to attempt to be better at what it is that sparks your life!  What you desire.  What makes you tick in harmony with your world.  I think my new goal is to be better at.......being better to myself!  Because, if I'm better to myself, I truely believe that it'll carry over into my family life, work, hobbies......everything I am a part of!  Well, that's thoughts on this beautiful full moon Sunday night!  My last thought....where's the chocolate?  here kitty kitty...........hmmmm, here Rex! 
peace & love,
