I took a new pic of my tomato plants today:

I used my remaining bag of organic potting soil around the three plants.

I finished the church website:

I’m still having a hell of a time sleeping.

My Colitis is under control I think, with the meds, but last night I had a sour stomach.

I read “Cutting for Stone” by Abraham Verghese. Very exciting long novel.

I read Julian Barnes’ “The Sense of an Ending”. It won the Man-Booker prize this year. John Kelly recommended it to me.

I read “The Children’s Book” by A.S. Byatt. A beautiful long book. I fell in love with the characters.

Before that, I read “The Sea Lady” and “The Needle’s Eye” by Byatt’s sister, Margaret Drabble. Both very good.

The house is being painted. Same color as Cynthia originally picked out. Already looking great.

Our bench finally gave out. Kate and Don bought me a new one. Looks great.

Scheduled to climb Pleasant Mountain this Saturday, the 23rd, with Phyllis and dog Abby. Bought some “Off” today for the Ticks.

I planted two German Johnson tomato plants over a week ago. Today I bought some liquid fertilizer.

This afternoon I planted six tomato plants in the outer rim of the round garden Cynthia had made a few years back. I had previously yanked out the weeds in this space with my bare hands. Bare hands! Then again with those bare hands I pulled up the low flowering weeds in the semi-circular area below the rectangular garden area in which I had planted two rows of green bush beans this morning. Then I stirred up the soil with the hoe and plunked in a butternut squash plant and a pickling cucumber plant. Yesterday I bought a couple zucchinis and plunked them in the rectangular plot beside the strawberries. Then I cut down some tall weeds shading that area. The three Cherry Tomato plants I put in over a month ago are looking fine now. Kate put wire frames around each of them. And finally, the numerous lettuce plants I put in at the same time as the cherry tomatoes are looking good.
