Today was a very productive day! After church, Mom, Violet and I went to Lowe’s. It was vital that we buy some fencing to put around the garden since *gasp* we have suffered the first casualties of war and it was a big blow. 90% of our fledgling bean crop is suddenly and inexplicably missing. A bunch of tomato plants are gone too. I think the rabbits ate them. Rabbit stew, anyone? So we got fencing, fence posts, some new tomato plants, a few jalapenos (that was me), basil, oregano, cilantro and lavender. I planted the herbs in what I’m now calling my herb garden — where the pond used to be — but will eventually hold sun-loving annuals and perennials of all kinds.
Needless to say, we were all very tired by this evening. Violet took a 3-hour nap and that is unheard of these days!
