Pilgrim Farmer John from Wellman, Iowa thought of that. His corn is already in and he is cheering me on with my upcoming planting this weekend. Not a cloud in the sky here and I’ve bought my number 50 sunscreen.
My Rebecca and our son Wiley got the tomatoes planted yesterday evening. We have high hopes for our new super micro-environment which we named Tomatotown. It is an 8 foot by 24 foot raised bed along a south facing wall of our wood shop. The shop is sided with steel panels and it gets cooking in that spot as the sun’s heat concentrates. So, there is a lot more room for other fun stuff like eggplant and peppers which are marginal in this climate zone. Maybe some sort of tapas peppers Felipe.
Tapas, now there is a topic. We are back outside at the big ten foot table on the deck. That is so nice to be back there again after the long winter. We have a lot of visitors rolling through this summer so we will be out there a lot. Yea, stop by.
I was looking around the house for a new book to read and found Hiking the Camino by Father Dave Pivonka. Sherie from San Diego had given this one and it’s my time to read it. There are so many good books on the Camino.
OK, have,to go. Miss you, love you, Felipe.
