Okay, seriously...someone needs to stop me. I have been bitten by the red, white and blue bug! I just can't seem to stop buying 4th of July decorations. I have hit every Michael's, Target, Walmart and Joannes within my driving sphere over the last couple of weeks. Tomorrow is the day I spread out all my loot and start playing, arranging and getting ready for our annual 4th of July BBQ. (I know, I know, another BBQ!)
We've had our share of hot dogs and hamburgers over the last few weekends so we are going with Mexican food. Carne asada on the BBQ, Mexican rice, beans, corn salad, pasta salad, fresh salsa and guacamole, a vegetable platter and for dessert Apple pie a la mode and chocolate cake...Mmm...mmm!
Now on to Tootsie's Fertilizer Friday...
My husband built what I hope is the first of many raised bed planters this year. We got a little bit of a late start putting in seeds but lucky for us we live in California and the seeds didn't seem to notice. Ha!
The first row is green onions...followed by radishes and in the back a couple of (store bought) tomato plants, cucumbers vines and peppers.
Never one to check labels too closely...I bought what I thought was a bell pepper plant that actually turned out to be jalapeno peppers...lol. So instead of spaghetti sauce we'll be tasting fresh salsa!
I have a couple more tomato plants that went in earlier in the season mixed in with my cutting flowers, that are producing tons of cherry tomatoes already.
That's it for today. Can't wait to show you what I have planned for the 4th!
