Do you remember the herb planter my dad bought for my Mom - well it is growing beautifully ! We have a rosemary in the top and then basil, chives, tarragon, sage and thyme. Mom planted marigold around the bottom to keep the bugs away (and it's working) and because they look pretty too. And see at my feet, we have already harvested 2 lbs on small sweet onions and Mom got her first yellow tomato today. Mom can only eat yellow tomato's as they are low in acid so she is having a tomato and cheese sandwich for lunch and if I am lucky I might get some too! We also have lots of eggplants and peppers already growing. The seeds that Maggie and Mitch's Mom sent us are also growing wonderfully. We have no idea what they are though as silly Mom lost the tags - she doesn't mind - she says it will be a wonderful surprise when they flower. Tomorrow we can hopefully show you some of our gladioli flowers - they are just starting to open up now and we can see at least one is going to be a bright red. This is the best part of gardening, when all the hard work is basically over and you start seeing and tasting the rewards. Okay, Mom and I are off to make Pesto (we need to use up some of the basil!!!!) And yippee - my Dad comes home tonight. He has been away for the last two weeks and Mom and I have missed him terribly - we have got quite use to him being home with us all the time now. Mom also took me for a walk this morning and I got to sniff EVERY mail box in the WHOLE neighborhood! What a great day and it's not even 9.00 am yet!
