My tomato plants have gotten so big that they had to be transplanted from the Aerogarden set-up to pots. Jeremy is doing the hands-on work–adding stakes and moving the whole works to my very small and unfancy but perfectly workable greenhouse, out by the barn. In place of the tomatoes: zinnias!
None of these lovelies can be planted in the ground until around Mother’s Day, but it’s good to have them off to a running start. I have two Aerogardens now and another on the way; my plan is to raise salads year-around for personal consumption. One set of seed-pods contains various kinds of lettuce, another, cherry tomatoes. A few green onions from the supermarket and I’ll be in business. YEE-HAW. The third unit will contain more flowers, which will eventually be in pots out on the deck.
Someone asked if I can skip Weight Watchers to write. Answer: I can–WW is, of course, volunary–but I usually don’t. I need that accountability. (Plus, Jenni would drag me, as she’s my accountability partner.)
Another reader recommended a book, ALL THE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE. I downloaded it and started listening last night. And it’s WONDERFUL. Thank you, whoever you were.
Weekend plans include the Women’s Show downtown, and Wendy and I are also looking forward to a Best of Broadway production of GUYS AND DOLLS on the 25th. We both LOVE musical theatre.
Well, that’s today’s update.
Remember: God loves you NOW, just the way you are. He’s not waiting for some new, improved version.
