ON THE BACK BURNER

June 5

How do you tell the difference between a weed and the veggie. My son advised me to taste the leaf to see if it tastes like a veggie. Things haven't matured enough to distingue a weed from a veg. Dill, I can tell because already it looks like dill. But arugula looks like a weed to me. I have eaten a lot of arugula these last few days. Still in the ground, and slightly dirty. Every day, I check my tomato plants .There are a few flowers and lots of healthy leaves. I am hopeful. It has been on the dry side here. I keep moving the sprinkler, every20 minutes. I even set a timer so that I don't forget to move it. I have to admit that  I hate our sprinkler. I have lost track of the number of times that I have accidentally sprayed myself, trying to adjust it. I want to keep the water in our yard,  not the neighbors, on the grass,  not my deck. I really like just standing out side with a hose in my hand, watering, but I never have the time to let the ground get really wet. That's why the sprinkler is better . And an added bonus, the humming birds and Robin's love to fly in and out of the spray. That is so cool.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
