Alright, time to end the radio silence. I’ve been trying to get all this wedding stuff together. Did you know that some places think their space is worth $7,000 a night?! Well, they do. I always heard that weddings were expensive but I had no idea just how expensive. We finally found a place that’s semi-affordable luckily. Then I moved on to finding a wedding photographer… yikes! They want just as much for the photos as our venue, food and wine combined. WTF! I’m thinking about changing my career path.
On a brighter, more economical note, my first attempt at growing cucumbers has been a success! Cleo (the cucumber plant) had 3 plump little cukes growing until somebody nabbed one of them, but the other two were delicious. I think I left them on the vine a little too long however as all the other growth on the plant was dieing, but everything is coming back to life now.
I love the little curly q’s these things do. I never really thought much about growing things but it’s so much fun. It’s exciting every day to go downstairs and see what’s new or bigger or greener.
Timmy the tomato is also doing well. It was a little touch and go for awhile, I didn’t think he was going to survive. In fact, I had already declared him dead and then one day I looked over and little yellow flowers were blossoming all over the place. I have 6 baby green tomatoes on the vine right now, and loads more yellow blossoms!
I also had some basil growing, twice in fact. Twice it died too. I’ve thought about getting another plant but after killing two I’m a little skeptic.
