See, I am practicing my limited Spanish! Now, if I can just work that word into regular conversation with 10 year old orphans I'll be good. ?Tienes un jardin? (Do you have a garden) Tengo un jardin. (I have a garden)
Still packing away here. So until I have something better to report, here are a few photos I have taken of our garden over the past several days. OK, more than a few. (My papaw always asks about our garden progress, so these are really for him).
-- yellow cherry tomatoes (los pequenos tomates amarillos), seeds received from Carl
-- baby romas awaiting their debut
-- big and fat (los grandes y gordos tomates) , better boy tomatoes
-- zucchini flowers (las flores de las calabazas verdes...Im guessing on this one)
-- summer yellow squash (la calabaza amarilla)
-- Japanese eggplant(la berenjena de Japan), longer and skinnier than the traditional fat and round ones, and very tasty
-- baby blackberries (la bayas negras), a bit later than last year, probably because I moved the to the new berry bed in the early Spring and it might have taken them a bit to get accustomed to their new digs
-- and the biggest surprise of all, raspberries (la bayas rojas)! I had planted one raspberry plant back when I moved the blackberries, but the plant just yellowed and the berries got all squishy before they even ripened. So, I was just hoping that the plant would make it through the year and produce next year. But a few mornings ago I noticed that we in fact have about 20 or so new green berries. Wyatt is so excited!
OK, back to packing.
Hasta manana amigos!
