Dead, or Alive!

Or, Alive and Dead. My flat-leaf parsley just couldn't be happier with this brisk, winter-like weather we're having. It's so big, I've taken to bringing cuttings in to put in a glass in the kitchen just because it's green and alive from the garden.

The other photo is the pile of tomato vines that I pulled up last weekend. The rest of the garden is a big mess, and needs to have grass dug out of it and earth turned before I can put my lettuce and radishes in. And, with my tendinitis, that means it will have to wait until I have someone come in and do it because it's just too much for my arms to handle.

But, I did pick 4 tomatoes and they are ripening in the family room window. You can even see some half-dead ones in the pile there. I don't think they're going to be any good - they look a little speckle-dy (that's the technical garden term!) and are very hard, so I am not holding my breath. But, hey, it's weird Austin weather and conditions, so who knows? I'll keep you posted!

It amuses me that someone else still had tomato plants with tomatoes hanging on ... I just got rid of mine, too, and enjoyed eating the last couple of determined "hangers on". Let's talk about cameras at Spring Fling. Can't wait!
