If Norma and Lynn (go say Happy Birthday to a woman who is proud to tell her age!) hadn't told me to thin 'em and use 'em it might never have occurred to me. Feeling tired and dragging when I got home from work, I decided to take a stroll through the garden and it really picked me up. This news should wait for the Friday State of the Garden, Such As It Is Address, but I can't wait to share: My romaine is making a comeback! I might get a salad out of it yet. It gets even better when I thin out the container garden a little. On my gardening friends' advice I pulled some of the radish and beet sprouts and tried them. They were so good! They tasted like, well, like radishes and beets! I don't know why that surprised me, how I thought they would taste I can't say. I had produce fresh picked from my garden on my salad for supper. I made the salad with only some lettuce and cucumbers so that I could really enjoy the pickings.
The day just kept taking great turns. After dinner a wonderful, great and dear friend called out of the blue, it's been years. I'll be riding high for days, that is my prediction.
One hundred eighty-four to go. This day deserves the big italics, you know why? It is the half way point!!! I'll bet some of you didn't think I'd make it this far, did you? I'll bet some of you thought it would be more entertaining to watch me sweat it out, didn't you? This is when it gets difficult, the summer......when I usually quit posting....... This isn't going to be easy.
