Happy Mother's Day!

Things are growing in the garden!

When we lived back east, we had a H U G E veggie garden. The kids were little, and we'd go pick fresh green beans for dinner, and eat them raw, after rinsing them with the garden hose.

Since we've lived in the H O T desert, I haven't had much luck with veggies. So this year, I'm trying something new. We have a small courtyard (my office window looks out onto it) that gets both sun and lots of shade. I've planted a bunch of veggies - tomatoes, squash, carrots, pepper, and also parsley and basil. In POTS, not in the ground. It's easy to water, and hopefully the veggies won't burn in the baking sun. Also hoping the birds and bunnies don't get to them all.
I'll let you know how it goes.

Have a wonderful Mother's Day - and I hope that things are growing where you live!
