Pruning back the Tomatoes
This morning I had high hopes of doing a great deal of gardening, of making up for the past week when we were at Camp. I set a goal to prune the tomatoes that live in the front of our garage in containers.
It was a cool and pleasant morning. However, by 9:30 it had heated up and the tomatoes were sufficiently denuded so that I could retire to the cool interior of our cave.
Tomorrow I shall water both the front and the back yards.
Gardening is a comfort. Watching stuff grow, tending it, pulling weeds, harvesting the fruits of your labours... these are all simple comforts.
This blog is called "Whirled" soup partly as a pun reference to many of the recipes being "World" soup recipes, but mostly because MOST of the recipes are whirled up in the magnificent old VitaMix 10-Appliances-in-1 in my kitchen....
