The Garden and The Girls

In one of my older posts I showed you how we used twigs for our tomato cages. I love the look, think it is such a nice, natural alternative to wire cages. Here's the garden now, holy crap, it's a jungle. I'm not lying when I say we must have 300 green tomatoes out there. I feel like Bubba in Forest Gump when I say that we are going to make quarts of tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato soup, tomato salsa, etc..... The other picture is of the herb garden. Mom planted basil, cilantro, marjoram, sage, thyme, parsley. My favorites are basil and cilantro, I don't use the others much, so if anyone needs fresh herbs, please stop by.
Also wanted to share this neat picture of my girls. I've had the white ones for a year and added four brown ones. At first they were like two rival gangs, but now they all get along great...........sometimes...........those brown ones are very territorial..........and hungry, but they are fun to have around....
If you have any ideas or recipes for herbs, tomatoes or eggs, please hit "comment" and share your ideas!!

About Me

Thank you very much for taking the time to read my blog. I am married and just entering the second phase of my life as a Army retiree's wife. My husband and I did 25+ years in the Army. He is now officially a retired Colonel and has just entered the civilian workforce and I am happily settled in our 1830 Stone house. I (along with my Mom) operate www.theoldtatteredflag and currently we are building a small shop in the back part of the house. We live in Northern NY, right near the Canadian border. I have two handsome sons and 2 puggles. Life is busy for us, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
