It is HOT in Missouri and dry, dry, dry. It's very important these days to jump out of bed early to get that watering done or it's sweat-city. The garden is looking great but I planted several things in containers in case I moved so they dry out really fast. I've never found a sprinkler that works the way I want it to and you're not supposed to get water on the tomato plants. Thus far, it takes about 30 min. to get it all watered.
My basil is going crazy and some of the garlic is ready to harvest -- two of my favorite things. So Saturday night I'm having some friends in for dinner & we're having pesto on pasta, bruschetta & a big ole green salad. I've been making the bread that you store the dough in the frig & I love it. It's an artisian bread so it's nice & crunchy on the outside but very soft on the inside. Perfect toasted with a little Parmesan for bruschetta.
I feel like if I'm having to keep the house all shined & polished, I might enjoy it a little too. By the way, the potential buyers are coming back on Sat. for a 3rd viewing -- that surely must mean they're serious. We'll see!!!!
I bought this chair at a garage sale last weekend & thought that it would be a breeze to re-do. It looked to be in perfect shape except for the ugly upholstery.
