Pictures from the Garden

It, the garden, was supposed to be smaller this year, but it ended up larger. That is what happens when your trade in the shovel for a rototiller for preparing the ground.

[UPDATE: Sorry, the picture got lost during the blog shuffle.]

May 3rd and there is already a tomato on the vine.

And a couple of strawberries.

And a couple of strawberries from the wild strawberry vine.

Volunteer. Possibly okra.

Three more volunteers. Probably squash.

Another volunteer. Also okra?

And all the okra that I actually planted.

Rained Out, But No Rain

The car show that was rained out last weekend was reschedule for this weekend. Again we had rain fore-casted but since no rain was actually falling, I decided to go on. When I arrived at the Athens Town Square, I saw a single vintage car. It didn’t occur to me to check the Cars on the Square web site for the event. It turns out the event was reschedule yet again. This time for June 6th.
Mid-South Live Steamers

My backup plans for the day involved a trip to Columbia, Tennessee to see/ride the trains. Unfortunately the weather prediction there involves 100% chance of thunder storms. This is the second time in a row I canceled this trip due to rain. Checkout the pictures of previous events.
