the days are getting warmer, which is great news for me because i cant stand the cold!
i know California is one of the warmer places in the states, especially during winter, but for someone whos teeth chatter uncontrollably in the freezer section of a grocery store.. its painful!
i still sleep with 2 THICK blankets in 55 degree nights.
Oh, im trailing off..
i ment to bring up some *special news ;
I HAVE NEW LEAF BABIES !
i have just recently adopted 2 little fruit plants~
one is a strawberry & the other is a "super sweet 100 hybrid" baby tomato plant !
i cant wait till they start poppin` their fruit !
i love vegetable / fruit gardens, and i admire anyone with a green thumb.
i havent cared for any plants since... i was really young, living back in Texas.
i use to help my mom raise lettuce & lots of jalapenos (which would grow to be HUGE ! some even managed to grow 6inches.)
we had very impressive peppers, and they were very easy to grow, if i remember correctly.
But me being less than 10 years old at the time, i guess it doesnt really count for a green thumb, haha.
Although ive only had my plants for a week, i can already see a few little green strawberries beginning to grow !
(nothing yet from the tomato plant though, boo . )
Anyway, since spring is in the air,
i was in the mood for some sweet, fresh, & colorful fruit.
First thing that came to mind was Fruit kabobs with some lightly powdered sugar. Mmm!
