Watching the garden grow

Just this morning, I got up at 5am, and went out to check my garden. Some of the jalapeno peppers which I grew from a second batch of seeds in a trough, on my deck, had been added to my garden yesterday. The feeling of wonder and accomplishment came over me and made me smile. I finally grew something from seed and it's taking off. Those new jalapeno plants were perked up in the soil, just like the big ones surrounding them. All that weeding this long weekend was worth it! Everything looks great.

I hear a redwing blackbird screeching at the bird feeder by my deck. The big old cat is laying by the door, catching the morning coolness. I have fed the cats and made the coffee. All is good.
