Never thought it would be, but today is Farming Friday!
Then I had a wonderful lunch at The Moose Cafe with a friend. Super good Southern Food, super good company. Their Apple Butter is awesome on those home-made biscuits!
It got warm, the sun was out ~ So far a great Friday
Then I come home and check on my tomato plant and LOOK! I have 4 tomatoes!
PLUS a few more flowers that are sure to turn into yummy home grown tomatoes. I may just have a green thumb after all, but don't want to speak too soon.
My daughter has a good green thumb though. Proof here, are all due to her diligence in taking care of these, here are her Trumpet Creepers.
She grew each of these from the seeds. Took care of them all fall, winter, and so far this spring. Then she got some pots and painted them and added an awesome touch of texture (with tiny pebbles from a local creek) and then put some Trumpet Creepers in them. We tried to sell them at The Big Love Fest last Sunday, but no luck.
So now, what to do with them? Does anyone in the Asheville area want one? Just let me know - once they are planted in the ground, you will have a beautiful pot.
Contact me for details if you would like one. She would be thrilled to have these go to good homes. (email me at Raige@live.com)
The hummingbirds will love you for it. They are attracted to these plants and help pollinate them. The orange flowers are just gorgeous too.
These are what they will look like. Just gorgeous.
A great Friday - full of farm stuff!
I hope your Friday has been as good as mine.
Nothing better than nature, friends, and family.
A great Farming Friday!
