We got the tomatoes in. If they all grow successfully, we'll be loaded. We planted more than twenty plants in three rows, and we're going to use the Florida Weave method to stake them. This lets us plant them closer together yet have room to work with the vines as they grow.
I'm not sure what's going on, but every time we have a big work day in the garden, I can't sleep at night because my legs ache so much. I was up until 3am last night and then woke up at 6-something this morning to get going on the morning chores. This sort of exhaustion can take me to the bad place pretty quickly.
I meant to share this photo last week. Because E really enjoyed her cooking class at the rec center and did more complicated cooking there than she normally does at our house, we realized that she could do more in our kitchen if she wasn't always perched on a stool. D built her a table/butcher block for the middle of the kitchen -- at just the right height for her. This is a picture from our last cracker-making adventure. It worked perfectly and gave her much more control.
I have lots more to say, but I'm too exhausted to write more. I better just cave in and go rest and let her watch cartoons. Me = bad mother.
