I didn’t spend as much time out weeding as I had planned. After giving the piano lesson, it was very hot and humid outside – and y’all know how well I do with humidity. 😛 😉
I did make a few more discoveries… with my plants.
First of all, my tomatillos aren’t tomatillos. Not sure what they are, but there are no husks on these babies…
I’m a little disappointed as I had envisioned myself making huge batches of salsa verde. However, I also love surprises, so it will be interesting to see what kind of tomatoes these turn out to be. I do need to warn those to whom I gave ‘tomatillo’ plants. I will also call the seed company and let them know.

I will do that now.
Blessings: My kids. Yes, I know you all are probably tired of hearing my slightly biased opinion of how wonderful they are. 😉 However, I am blessed, first to have them back – I missed them sooooo much – and also that I have the time and freedom to be able to spend large amounts of quality time with them, and enjoy their personalities and company.
Now I must be off. One of the cats left a ‘gift’ of a bird on our front step. Unfortunately the bird is still kicking. I’m never sure what to do in this situation. I know the gift means a lot to the cat, so I don’t want to slight that, however I don’t like the bird to still be in pain. I know, it’s nature’s way, but still…
