MIA for Awhile

Hi Everyone. Once again, I will be transferring  my blog to my nephew Nova for a couple of weeks and leave it in his capable (?) paws.  My assistant is in Michigan with Lauren who should be giving Ollie and me a nephew soon.

In the meantime, I've posted a picture for Teddy Bear of OUR harvest - just a handful of minuscule green tomatoes. Farmers of America (and of the world) can rest at night knowing that Mom is definitely not in competition with them.

How sad !

On the positive side, Mom has a green thumb when it comes to growing jade plants. A no-brainer. Just prune a branch, stick it in the soil and it self-roots. Since the plant is a succulent, it's water-retaining and adapts to arid soil.

There's also a dragon plant and some begonias in the photo which are surprisingly thriving.

Can't get any easier than that.

Hopefully, I'll still be checking everyone's blogs and adding my comments.

Have a great weekend everyone !!!

Hi Cappy, thank you so much for sharing pictures of your harvest. Did your Mom make fried green tomatoes? This was a tough year for tomatoes. We hope you'll try again next year. The jade plants look pawesome and are very pretty.

Hi Cappy and Oliver,
Are you missing mom? I bet she cannot wait to get back to warm CA and the ones she loves most! Just wanted you to know we are thinking of you all.
