All American Garden
Happy Independence Day.
Just for fun, I looked at last year's post on July 4th.
A year ago...
I wanted it to stop raining so I could garden. Now we might get some rain today and that would make me very happy!
My sister's garden was a bit out of control, now it is a showcase garden for raised beds and wrought iron fencing.
My corn was shoulder high and tasseling, and today it is once again shoulder high and tasseling.
My beans were blooming a year ago, and once again today my beans are blooming.
And I'm still a few weeks away from harvesting the first ripe tomato, just like last year.
You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4th, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism. - Erma Bombeck
