Hmmm.....been away from my garden for 5 days now and thoughts of whether it is dead or alive permeate my brain. It's care has been left in the hands of my less-than-domesticated and far less outdoorsy daughters. This is the same family that snickers at the sight of my soil laden nails and clothing. As in "Oh mom....look at your feet!!". These very feet have never experienced a pedicure, ever. So while my darling daughters are getting french manicures, I am perfectly content to have dirt in my nails. Hmmmmmf.
On the bright side, they were kind enough to stand guard as best they could in my absence. For that I am thankful.
