What's going on with me

Well, I wasn't chosen for the tiger team, and that's ok.  I received a handwritten thank you note from Diane McNutt which meant a lot.  I'll apply for the Leadership Training Program through the Los Gatos Chamber of Commerce.  The deadline is Aug 31, 2008, so if you're interested in learning more about Los Gatos politics & the way things work, sign up for it.

So, I'm trying to figure out what the big parade was on Friday.  My Dad was stopping over to fetch some tomatoes and got stuck.

And I hope all of you are considering putting in your own Victory Gardens.  You really don't need much room.  I have 30 containers from AGardenPatch and am growing 21 tomato plants, corn, potatoes, cucumbers, cantaloupe, squash, and peppers.  I'm sure there's more.  My daughter got really into it, and we'd buy unique sounding things like Jenny Lind melons.

I'm starting to plan what I'll grow in the Fall.  I've put in a number of bush beans that should start producing in September.  And I need to plant some brussel sprouts.

I'll post some pictures soon.  Amanda has my laptop.  So I stole my husband's.
