Creating, crafts, gardening, quilting and life on a little ranch.

Category Archives: tomatoes




I was so ready to enjoy a few days away but felt anxious about my garden.  Last week we had extreme temperatures, one day  it was 109 and then we had a 106 on another day.   My poor plants looked so stressed out.

Right before we left I deep watered and hoped for the best.  Luckily the weather cooled the day we left and I felt a little better.

I couldn’t ask my kids to come and water, because we were all going to be together.

My sister-in-law who usually takes care of my garden while we’re away, lives across town and it’s hard for her to get a ride to our house, and she doesn’t drive.

We also have squirrels who have been stealing our tomatoes.  One day we had a good sized tomato and then the next day it had disappeared.

But I was surprised to see that mi jardin survived.

I came home to some red ripe tomatoes and a few zucchini.


I felt so relieved!

I quickly  harvested my bounty.

Thank you so much for stopping by.♥♥♥♥
