Tomatoes and something, something Earth Motherly/Sustaining

Days of Wine and Donuts

I was going to the l-i-b-r-a-r-y. But somehow ended up at a b-a-k-e-r-y and then a w-i-n-e s-t-o-r-e. In my defense, our niece Raven is a boss of the bakery, and so maybe I was helping her with quality control. Oh well. Here are the "books."
I actually do go to the downtown Everett library quite often. Every time I would come home with baskets of books, before I had a tablet and could read online. The only problem is, my laundry and my book baskets looked a lot alike. And one day I caught myself standing at the book return, with a bra and some underwear in my hand. Not my best moment.



Here are some flowers and plums...it can't all be wine and donuts.
So the garden has won. Wild and crazy girl, throwing shoots of green and flowers everywhere, like unmentionables at an orgy. Anyway, I give.

My friend Jerome mailed me a nice garden journal at the start of the season, all pretty and proper, with a quote on the front. My intention was to write nice prose, like in Monet's journals...something like "remember to plant the poppy seeds in the field, and don't forget more waterlilies." Well, this year my first entry was "WTF, phlox?" And after working out there this evening, I am tempted to write simply, "Imma f**k this b*tch up with a chain saw this fall." Yeah, it's getting tough in this here 'hood.

Yes, of course we have a chandelier in the garden. Everyone should get to have a chandelier outside.

Clementine waiting for dinner service.

Still waiting.

"Where is my waitress?!!!"

"Worst service ever! I'm leaving!!!"

Some shady spots.

Learning to grow food. The plastic netting is to protect the carrots and radishes from kitties. Held down with vintage tractor models, and the trike will have pumpkin vines on it. If all goes well, I will have peas, carrots, kale, arugula, squash, zucchini, pumpkins, berries, beans, cabbage, and plums and pears. Oh, and kohlrabi. I have NO idea why I planted that. I don't even know for sure what it is, but it looked good.

Pumpkin Trike

Kohlrabi. I have no idea.

Frisky fish, and lights in the central pear tree.

Cecil Brunner is out of control...


This is Cecil at just four years old, blocking the view of the garden. I planted her right after the neighbor guy across the street made mention to Jim as to how much wine was flowing in my garden the night before. Now no one can see past her to the sitting area. What happens behind Cecil, stays behind Cecil.
