It is now official....

Happy Saturday - and welcome to the first official day of summer!

Here are some things that have been happening while summer has been "unofficial.":-)

There is a melon there!  Do you see it?

This onion is ready to pop out of the ground!

Hopefully these tomatoes will remember that red is the color we want to see!

Just a little lettuce came up from seeds.

The first harvest of our potatoes!

The Husband has worked hard in the garden, and his efforts are paying off!  The zucchini and green beans that were picked this week are not pictured, but they have already been enjoyed! 

I welcome the 101st follower to the blog! 

Have you made some good week-end plans?  I hope you have a good one, whatever you do!

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.


  1. its so exciting the first crop of summer, we are very far behind you, potatoes already, wow!!!!

  2. Such a great start to your harvest! Of course, you COULD do some fried green tomatoes if you wanted to use some of those beauties that way! :-) My main plan for today is to stay cool, and that might be a major project here! Have a most pleasant Saturday and a blessed Sunday, Sister!

  3. It makes me hungry to see your garden! Green beans are one of my favorites.
    Wishing you a blessed weekend.

  4. I really miss having a garden. Your garden looks great and those tomatoes will be ripe before you know it!

  5. Oh that melon brings back some mixed feeling. Two years ago on the day I was to harvest my cantaloupes, I received a called from my son telling me that I better check my garden... a family of raccoons had gotten into my garden and had seriously damages everyone of my cantaloupes. I only got to eat one tasty cantaloupe from the whole patch.

    I'm green with envy of your green tomatoes.

    Your husband sure did a great job of looking after the garden.
    Enjoy the fruits of his labor and he'll enjoy the fruit of your labor.

    Have a nice weekend.

  6. Nellie, Things are looking yummy around there. I love the little melon. xoxo,Susie

  7. Balance your spiritual energy and get in harmony with your soul by practicing these Radha-Krishna meditations.

    Sri Gita Govinda
    -A book written in the 12th century, this is a description of the intimate loving affairs of Radha and Krishna

    Govinda Lilamrta
    -An 400 year old book which poetically describes the eternal daily pastimes of Radha and Krishna

    Ananda Vrindavan Campu
    -This is probably the most poetic and intimate portrayal of Sri Krsna’s life in Vrndavana that has ever been written.

    Prayers of Service to Radha and Krishna (Sankalpa Kalpadruma)

    Prema Samputa The Treasure Chest of Love

    And the following four are taken from Visvanath Cakravarti's Camatkara Candrika, a 300 year old scripture that talks about the love meeting of Radha and Krishna:

    The Meeting in the Box

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Doctor

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Singer

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as Abhimanyu

    And lastly, we have the supreme scripture which describes the 24 hour daily loving affairs of Radha and Krishna in Vrindavan, called Bhavanasara Sangraha. This book is now available on Amazon for Kindle, for only $3.49

    Here is a 41 page sample of Bhavanasara Sangraha:
