Bob and I spent Sunday doing a lot of yard work. All the trees were trimmed, the bushes were trimmed, the grass cut and edged, the flower beds weeded and the evergreen trees shaped. We made four trips to the place in our subdivision where we dump these kinds of things.
Our gardens look fabulous.
We also cleaned the vegetable garden, otherwise known as my salsa garden. We pulled the rotting tomato vines and gave it a good plowing. As we were completing the clean up of the garden, we came across a couple of pepper bushes that we must have missed earlier. Here is what I was able to harvest from those pepper plants.
I love having a garden. Its hard work but so deeply satisfying to pick your own tomatoes and peppers. If you haven't worked a garden yet, promise yourself that next spring you'll either plant a tomato bush in a pot or work a piece of ground to put a plant in. You will never regret your time in a vegetable garden!
