Summer’s Bounty

I’m way behind on my gardening. The garden beds are overgrown with weeds, and there are seeds to be collected for the next season’s planting. However, the beans are thriving in their garden jungle! In fact, it is quite urgent to get them harvested before the beans get any bigger. There are tomatoes and pumpkins growing amongst the beans, compliments of our compost.

Harvesting the beans was my top priority, so with the help of my new roommate, we got most of them picked, except for the ones too high for use to reach (we are both very tall. I’m 5’10” and Jen is a couple inches taller). Then we took a stroll through the greenhouse where I have a section for my own use. There were vine ripened tomatoes, summer squash, and coriander seeds. There are also peppers, but I’m not in any hurry to pick them, since I’m not ready to use them. I can’t wait for the tomatillos to be ready so I can make salsa Verde.

First off, who am I? My name is Jessica Urquhart. Writing has always been a hobby of mine, which got its start in middle and highschool, when I'd write short stories for the amusement of my friends and classmates. Currently, I'm working on my first book, my one true love of a story I've been saying I would one day write. Well, that day has come. If you'd care to follow my musings on the adventures and hurdles of writing my first fantasy book, then please, read my blog.

  1. Whoa! It looks like the garden and weeds have been fruitful this year. Must be the unusual heat, no? Those veggies look really good. I didn’t know you were still blogging. I wasn’t getting any notifications so maybe that’s because WP made another improvement to enhance your blogging pleasure. I think Hans the ASS works for WP now.

    1. Haha! Hans is very ambitious, so he probably is running things at WP! 😄 I’m still here, just not as active as I should be.

      1. Glad to see you are still here. I’ll drop by and catch up. Beware of lugubrious commentary. It’s not me, it’s that rascally ASS Hans. 😜
