The approach of summer in Florida has telltale signs including afternoon rains, high humidity levels and pesky little Lovebugs that fly into our hair, stick to the grills of our cars, and generate exclamations of ‘Yuck, it’s Lovebug season already?!?’ Those little pests are also harbingers for fishermen who know that when they show up, the Gulf waters are warming and welcoming Tarpon. Yes, Tarpon season is upon us, and my hubby, among many other fishing fanatics this time of year, is chomping at the bit to get out there in search of his favorite fish. While he laments his inability to go fishing due to his many art projects in the studio, I’m lamenting the fact that these high temps and humidity levels also mean the end of my Fall/Spring garden. . .
What a fantastic garden. You are an inspiration to an “would be” gardener like me. I hope our garden is this fruitful next year!
Thanks Wendy! I’m sure, with all the love and attention yours is getting, it will be very fruitful next year 🙂
Your garden is beautiful. With all your good compost , every year will get even better.
Thank you! That compost works wonders 🙂
I love your recipes and stories about your life growing good food and sharing with friends and family. I especially liked your picture of the family sharing good times and food. Loved seeing Mary Lou in the picture as I am a friend of hers here in the Chicago area.
Thank you, Jan! We always have so much fun with Mary Lou and the gang are around. . .and family meals are one of my most favorite moments 🙂
