Smoothie World Around Here Lately

I had a Strawberry, Banana, Honey smoothie tonight. Yesterday, it was Mulberry, Banana, Honey. I think the Mulberry was better than the Strawberry, which is good because I have to buy Strawberries, but I have a big old tree full of Mulberries.  

The tree was given to me as a cutting from Mr. Picard, my old neighbor.  I still remember him, with a plastic milk just with the top cut out and strung through his belt up in that Mulberry tree picking berries.   He also gave me my Champanelle grapes as cutting off of his vines, too.  Mr. Picard has passed, but if you are looking down on me, you must smile seeing me enjoy the fruits of your gifts every year, literally. 

Planting and Another Tomato

I planted two more rows of Dixie Lee Field Peas today, two more rows of Edamame, and a row of Perique Tobacco.  This fills in the left arm bed to create an intensive planting arrangement.

Oh, and we had a second ripe tomato too.  This one was the "Bush Goliath" plant.  It is so thick and healthy one can hardly see the tomatoes inside, and there are many.
