Someday I will plant a huge garden and fill it with heirloom vegetables, savory herbs and colorful flowers.
This year, I am settling for a few pots on my deck.
Yellow Cherry Tomato, Red Cherry Tomato, and Roma Grape Tomato.
Mild Jalapeno Pepper.
After I got home, I realized I had forgotten to buy marigolds. One should always plant marigolds next to one's tomatoes. It's natural pest control. I will take care of that asap.
I also splurged on a new bird feeder. The one I had before should have been called a "squirrel feeder"; the one I bought today is supposed to be "squirrel proof." I'll let you know whether or not it lives up to the claim.

I didn't get any writing done today - shame on me! - but my word count is 16,626 to date, putting me well ahead of where I committed to be (10,000 words) here at the halfway point in A Round of Words in 80 Days. So I am hereby upping the ante and raising my daily word count goal to 1750 words. If I am successful, I will complete my revision by the end of the challenge.
Failure is not an option.
Please come back tomorrow for our online book discussion of To Kill A Mockingbird. I am really looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
