I ventured out into the sweltering heat yesterday and made an attempt at cleaning up the garden. We have been having daily rains and that means: weed city.
Beneath all the weeds, I found some treasures:
Yes, TWO (tiny as heck) taters and a cucumber.
I can’t decide how to prepare the taters.
Should I roast them?
Or should I go all out and make twice baked potatoes?
At this rate, I should have a batch of mashed potatoes by 2035.
Did I tell you *something/someone was stealing my tomatoes?
I found the culprits.
Yeah, they look all sweet and innocent. You can’t even trust your own family members these days.
When I confronted them, they gave me this whole spiel…tomatoes are rich in vitamin A and C and then something about potassium and lycopene being good for their heart and coats…yada yada yada…
So…what does all this mean?
Well, it is too hot and sunny in my garden for my ‘maters now. And I can’t keep them in pots on the lanai.
*dang tall dogs*.
I am resorting to tacky.
Yes, I know lots of people use these upside down planters. I don’t mean to offend, but I find them to be tacky. And I am joining the tacky party.
Right there on my pretty lanai with the resort type pool will by my tacky ‘mater plants.
This might be the beginning of the end.
Next, plastic flowers on my kitchen table and one of these in the front yard:

Once you go tacky, you never go back.
Now I must run, I am busy knitting pastel tissue box covers for all my blog friends.
