It worked..it is SUNNY today!
And the rain pelted for and entire night and day..the gardens were left in disarray..
much to my dismay..
Ok too poetic..
a mess..hosta blooms knocked down..tomatoes engorged with water ..not sun nor warmth..
I communicated w/ my Smurf seed purveyor and she attests a bad year so far for tomatoes..bounty may be late September..
they need the latter two things to turn..warmth and sun..
A lot of the gardens are finished already:(
Why why why why why..
is this year's summer Jetsoning by?
Today is nice and I will clean up places..that look tired..Jacques will mow..
The dinner plate dahlias..are definitely not dinner plates..and not really my colors..but that's all they had:(
I cleaned all the garlic yesterday afternoon..quite a sight..
we love it's perfume in the house..
I cut the roots and stem..and gently rub to clean.
End of Oct I will plant..and the cycle starts again as long as I can.
I have saved one basket of 25 bulbs to plant which should give me a little over 100 next yr again God willing.
We eat it ALL.
We had a lovely visit yesterday..
I need time to write about it and not hurry the memory along.
Next post I hope.
We are celebratingAdamo's 18th birthday this weekend and Giuliana's 16th.
I am repeating myself endlessly..but talk about speed of light .
These two are such lovely young adults♥
I made a rolled carrot cake for Jacques..next time I will grate my carrots smaller..I used my mom's hand crank grater that I LOVE:)
But it made the cake extra moist..
You can find the recipe many places..in French at Isa's place and in English here.
Fun instead of a BIG cake:)
Thank you both for inspiring me to make this cake.
Have a lovely weekend!
