There are no pictures today as there's hardly anything in the garden picture worthy. I'm having vegetable withdrawal. The only things I have left in the ground now are sweet potatoes, a few cucumbers and the yellow pear tomato plant. That little yellow pear plant is the zucchini of tomatoes. It just keeps producing and producing which is fantastic, but it's the only thing producing. The cucumbers just don't seem to be getting pollinated anymore. The heat is intollerable still and things just can't keep up.
I've planted some more beans, cucumbers and peas. The broccoli and cabbage will go in this weekend. Hopefully we'll see some new green sprouts soon.
School started back for me on Wednesday and the kids go back this coming Monday. I'm excited to go back. The summer teaches me how much I love my job. Yes, the day to day headaches are tiring and frustrating, but when it comes down to it, I love my job. I've always said that if you teach, you'd better need to teach, or you'll burn out. I need to teach. It's a parasite with a sometimes symbiotic relationship. It sucks the life out of you for 9 months of the year, but you can't exist as a whole person without it. I do love my job.
The morning is once again coming early. Sweet gardening dreams.
