Saturday * Garden View

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
