Spring Flowers

Sue’s first tomato

Monday, February 20th, 2006

Sue loves dirt. She’s happy moving wheelbarrows full of soil back and forth for Chuck’s purposes, weeding and mulching around small trees, digging for a conch shell garden, but perhaps her favorite dirt is found in her garden.

Her garden is a tiny patch of The Peabody Estate, nestled behind the shed and new beach right next to the Hutson’s gate (through which their dogs enjoy the view). Her garden may be tiny, but it contains a huge variety of flowers and vegetables.

TomatoA few days ago Susie gave me the tiniest tomato. Apparently it fell off its vine and wasn’t quite ripe - but after a few days sitting on a windowsill, it brought joy to my salad with bright colors and great flavor. God bless Sue and her garden! Mike

Weed Control - what's wrong with this picture?

Of the three men in the boat, why is the one applying the chemicals not wearing protective gear, while the other two passengers are well protected? Mike

Another day digging

Oh how I love digging. My hands are blistered. My ears are full of dirt. My back hurts. But I can see we’re making progress and my entire body is reminding me that I’m alive! Mike
