We had a nice visit. I am praying now they get home in one piece and that they will have no more anything on the way home. The weather sure isn't cooperating. We had 13 inches of snow here in California over the weekend. I haven't been able to find just how much rain we got. My plants love it though.
I wanted to share the mix I have been putting on my plants this year.
I buy this in bags.
I mix it all together in a large bucket and I just put a tablespoon around the base of the plant. Its dry by the way. With all of the rain its been getting washed down. I have never had tomatoes or bell peppers in May. I was looking at my tomatoes this morning and they are covered in blooms. No blossom rot which has been my bane for a few years. No splits either. I crawled all over the garden on my knees feeding everything on Saturday because I knew that we were going to have rain. I just didn't expect so much rain.
I listen to stories and I read anything I can get my hands on. I was going to the library on Saturday and there was a man on my way selling these wooden signs. He only had this one bigfoot. I told myself all the way to the library, I did not need a 8 foot big foot. As I drove back from the library it was still there. I stopped and he came home with me. I laughed the whole way home. When I got home Elliot was putting stuff on the lawn and I said, " Hey come help me with my big foot." He stopped and never said too much when Mom opens the back of the car and we have to carry it where it is now. I asked him, " Is Peter coming home for the weekend?" He said "Yes I think so." He went back to the lawn, and I was laughing to myself as I went and found Ron to show him what I brought home.
He is so good, he didn't even get mad but laughed with me and I admit to chortling quite a bit every time anyone tell me how it scared them. So the stage was all set for Peter to come home. Peter lives in San Diego and gets off work at 11:30 P.M. and drives home. He will get home depending on L.A. traffic sometimes between 2:30 and 4:30 in the morning.
This is what he said on Instagram. " That's all fun and games until you get home at 2am and it scares the daylights out of you. "
I have laughed and laughed.
I have plans for this big foot. His name now is Harvey. Like in the movie by the same name. I am going to put him in the garden so he can be a scarecrow. He is going to go out in the yard around Halloween. I am going to put him out in the trees in the pasture. Lots of plans for him. Right now though, this is his home for now. Until the rain stops.
Thank you so much for stopping by today,
