Today, we spent the time working in the garden a bit. I only went indoors just now because of the dizziness. It is like super-hot in South Florida. It is enough to melt one’s brains. Anyhow, I saw this butterfly on my new sunflower and so I took a photo. Sunflowers are just precious. I have a couple of new saplings sprouting here, and there. Soon, I might have new tomato plants. When a tomato gets ruined by the birds the hawks missed, I usually just cut it on half and burry it in the dirt. Give it enough time,...

Mother recently got her tax refund. With a small portion of it, we decided to give the front garden a bit of an upgrade. Most of the plants were bug infested or just plain dead. It was time for a change. Anyhow, mom was making most of the decisions of the front garden. I usually mess around the vegetable patch. It is a bit of a chaotic mess, but it produces tomatoes so no one cares. While shopping around a bit, I saw the prettiest rose there ever was. I decided that the garden needed a new rose. One of...

My doll is holding the first strawberry that has been born in my garden. Well, it is at least the first strawberry that is big enough to warrant being harvested. It looks real nice, and juicy.

Hopefully, I...

Today, I went down to Home Depot to get more plants. It is like the only place for miles to get decent plants for your garden. So, for geographical convenience I go there. Also, lately, I have aversion to visiting new places. Enough crazy talk, the entire point of this short rant was to show you the things I bought there. I also did a little bit of window shopping for flowers. I like looking at the flowers, but I am terrible at taking care of them. I have a better hand with the vegetables. Slowly, I am getting better...

The shortest month of the year has finally arrived. And with it, a lot of cold and wind. Thankfully, it has not gotten too cold in South Florida. The lowest it has been is 50 degrees Fahrenheit. A little lower and then it would have snowed. It would have been a fun novelty, but it would have killed my tomato crop, which is showing some actual progress. Speaking of progress, I wanted to show you how it is going. I made a short video about it and everything. I need to organize a little bit better my Youtube collections. I...
