Today's Wonder of the World is...My Old Handmade Rake that I found in a French junk store for six dollars.
Isn't it amazing? I've hung it as art over my back door because I think it's beautiful.
Is that weird?
When I brought it home, Todd assumed I'd let him use it! He's so funny. I told him certainly not!
But it does make me feel like a farmer.
If I had Photoshop I might change that pitchfork to my rake.
Hey, it's been a while since you've seen our coffee table garden.
Would you like to take a peek?
Tanner is standing guard. Boy, it looks like a mess from that viewpoint.
Let me back up a little.
It still doesn't look that much better, but at least you can tell that it's growing.
Look at the tomatoes in the back! The collards are trying to hog all the space. The beans are a little wimpy. Maybe they're intimidated by the trellis Todd strung up. (You mean I'm expected to grow that high?)
Perhaps I think a little too much about vegetable self esteem.
Tanner thinks it all looks delicious.
Or perhaps he's licking his chops over our sneaky little garden pests with their bushy tails.
They like to hop around and dig little holes. I'm not sure that they're getting much. They seem to prefer asparagus the best.
You probably can't see the holes from here, but they're there.
The great thing about a miniature garden is that I can just run my fingers through the soil, and it's raked fine. No more holes.
And I didn't even have to take my art rake off the wall and dirty its tines.
Tom Thumb gardening. That's for me!
Nice manicure, thumb!
(Sorry--I know that this photo has nothing to do with gardening, but I saw it on flickr and couldn't resist. Guess what his name is..."that tom bell"!)
Have a marvelous Monday everybody!
