Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Tonight is a celebration for me---we got the garden and the flower garden planted today. That is a great accomplishment for me. I am always happy when we finally get them planted. This year so far we have planted in the garden two rows of pole beans, a cherry tomato, a roma tomato, six better boy tomatoes, six green peppers, one jalepeno pepper, a crookneck squash, a zukeni squash, five hills of cucumbers and a patch of green onions about 3'x6' (not in a row but an oblong patch---and I probably forgot something but this is all I can remember.

I like the feeling of having the garden planted but I don't like that as much as when we start picking tomatoes and cucumbers and things from it to eat every night---I like that better---much better.

I like it when people put flowers in their vegetable garden too!
It makes it cuter. We got an upside down tomatoe planter that holds 4 or so and then you put herbs on top. :)
I don't know how it works, but I will let ya know.
