Back 40

Sissy and I are driving up to New Hampshire right now to see what treasures we can find in our parents' attic. You may remember the last time we did this. Or the time before that.

Anyway, nothing really to share at the moment, so I thought I'd show you what's going on in the back 40.

We've got hot peppers, squash, basil, parsley, oregano, cilantro, and eggplant. (The tomatoes live on the side of the house where I think they get a bit more sun.) We did a little experiment and put one squash right in the ground. Let's see if we can keep the pennywort off it. (It's looking a little stunted compared to the squash-in-pots, so I've been feeding it special.) The cilantro went NUTS with all the rain we were having.

Hello, beautiful! I love you, future-eggplant, I will be very respectful when I gobble you up. It will be a special recipe, I promise.

And not to be outdone, a little shot from the "mother's garden," the one our mothers helped us dig and plant. So fabulous!

I know this post was a little sillier than usual. But that is exactly how this ride whole weekend is going to be. It's our coping strategy...

Been dreaming of New Hampshire lately. Miss it so, even after 30 + years. Tell us all about it.

Love the eggplant flower! Have a great trip.

Enjoy. I'll be there next month. DH is driving back from NH tomorrow.

Geez, I suppose it shows me just how clueless I am about gardening when I thought your eggplant flower was a clematis. Ahem.

Your stitching gallery is beautiful! I love how you placed everything.

Have a good weekend.
