Moment's Melodic Muse:
"Blame It On the Rain"
I finally decided to grow a small garden again this year. I haven't really grown one since my Babcia passed away, just over 2 years ago.
I got out the throw rug, small garden tools & cigarettes & got to work on my little piece of earth. Pulling the weeds didn't seem to be working too well, so I started digging & cutting into the ground till I got a good-sized piece. I pulled it out, shook off the dirt & continued until I had a cleared area about 4ft by 2ft.
Time to plant the tomatoes! I grabbed the little planter that came with the kit to start the tomatoes in & separated them. Babcia & I used to go to this great produce place to get tomato & pepper plants that were already on their way to being strong, sturdy specimens. She would buy too many tomato plants for herself so she would "have to" give some to me to grow in my limited gardening space. I always seemed to find just enough room for them. The cucumbers were always grown right in the garden from seeds. And they had to be pickling cucumbers. How else are you supposed to make pickles? (You're probably wondering if I'm ever going to make it back from Memory Lane? Or am I lost forever? Seriously, when have I ever been completely here? )
Forever waving my Babcia's babushka,
