This morning the last of the garden goodies came in. There was time to snag some photos, so I could play with PicMonkey on my coffee break.
This is one of Hubby's vintage mixing bowls. The maker is a mystery to me. It is super heavy with nice straight sides. I found a large Fire King mixing bowl with tulips for the shop. Right now it is holding the stash of vintage crochet thread I found. It looks like maybe I should have grabbed it for these tomatoes, so that they would have all fit.
Grandma's aluminum bowl is full of Cuban Oregano. It is our favorite kind of oregano with a super strong flavor. Some was lost to frost last night, so it is really nice that there was time to cut it today.
Grandpa always grew cherry and pear tomatoes, and I would help him fill up this bowl. We would take them inside to wash them, while the roar from the airplanes at the nearby Milwaukee Mitchell Airport would rattle all of the dishes in the cupboards. Back then I was barely able to carry the bowl when it was full.
The birds were nice enough to plant these two tiny sunflowers for us. If I had not gone out today we would have missed them completely tucked into the tomatoes and winter onions. Hopefully the lavender plant will make it through the winter. Cross your fingers!
This was fun, you all make sure to take a coffee break, or simply fifteen minutes for yourselves today.
