Welcome to my Weekend Life : it’s another hot and muggy one in South Louisiana.
And we have had rain the last few day – great for the garden but we have had enough. So a little Sunshine would be great So let’s check on the garden.
My Morning view :
Green tomatoes on the vine. Yum! Now i just need to wait till they get to a good size. And I can fry them up. My family loves fried green tomatoes fresh from the garden……Lisa
