In fact, it's looking pretty dang sad lately.
We discovered a leak at the end of last Summer, but it was small so we ignored it.
This year it was pretty big and was flooding the yard. So we drained the pool and tried to fix it, three times. Last week, we finally had a real pool guy come check it out and, surprise, surprise, Mr. Terry didn't build it right. We have tried a few different fixes and none have worked. We have one more Hail Mary attempt before we have to give it up.
But that depresses me, so let's move on to what we have been enjoying round here:
Our garden is booming.
We have harvested about 15 zucchinis, 2 cherry tomatoes, and 4 green peppers. Plus and handful of blueberries that got gobbled up on the thirty steps from the garden to the kitchen. Let's take a peek at what's growing:
green beans on the left, bell peppers on the right
monster zucchini plants
bucket loads of zucchini!
mystery squash turned out to be a cucumber plant!
approximately 2 billion cherry tomatoes
big ole tomatoes
josie's massive poppy plant and our watermelon patch
awesome fig production this year
pear on the left, wild blackberries on the right
beautiful pomegranates coming in!
Can't forget about my homegrown babies!
I'm babysitting a couple days a week this Summer and it's been awesome. Christian is so patient with Gabe and they've been playing for hours outside together. Josie and Audrey are two peas in a pod too. I am loving having one day a week that I know we will just be home. It's been the perfect day to get some major gardening and housework done in between pool hopping.
That's about all we are up to around here!
