So, it was a wonderful thing when he got four nice healthy ears of corn. Two we gently dropped into hot water. The other two we scraped into a salad. They were wonderful! Very sweet!
Now his tomatoes have gone crazy. He has hundreds of teeny tiny green and bright red tomatoes and one enormous plant that he seeded from the seven foot tall tomato plant that grew on the portal.
The arugula has now bolted in the heat, and the last of the butter leaf lettuce and spinach were treats for Humberto and his family last week. The peas and beans are gone, both were a little stringy, so we don't miss them. Parsley is still abundant and waiting to go into a chimichurri mix and the carrots are still burrowing underground.
He says this has been a great experiment and is already thinking about adding on to the garden and what he will put into it.
We are trying to get out of town. We have a road trip planned, but we have a very sick cat. Cookies has some unexplained puncture wounds that I will not describe in detail, so we are off to the vet to see what we need to do. Cats are so easy to leave behind when you take a trip. With the help of a neighbor and Humberto, Cookies is always fine when we leave and madder than heck at us when we return. We will see how things go.
Que le vaya bien!
