This morning I woke up quite early, not enough sleep from excessive stress taking a toll on me. I haven't been able to water my plants or veggies for a couple days due from being sick. The weather has been terribly hot and dry that tending my garden must be done before the sun appears or I get dizzy in the summer heat. I had a migraine for 3 awful days and was recovering from a cold which led to sinus infection.
Tricolor Beans, Flower Blossoms
My husband and I received sudden news that the cabin we're living in is being sold as soon as possible, perhaps in the next two months or by the end of this year. We have no choice because we don't own the property. We're having financial difficulties because the lack of employment. I'm aware we're not alone since plenty of people I know are out of work and suffering in this economic crisis. If you're going through it don't give up, try to remain positive. I can relate, we understand.
Took awhile for the Leaf Lettuce to grow

I'm growing 6 types of Basil, I'm crazy about them! In this container: Cinnamon, Thai, and Red Rubin Basil. The others in the garden bed are Italian Large Leaf, Sweet Basil, and Spicy Basil.
We have many herbs for cooking. If I'll be able to, I'm going to take my container garden wherever we go. I'm genuinely grateful to live in the mountains for even a short time. The door of making a home here probably closed on us because of better opportunities. I'll announce what's going on when we find out. It has been awesome meeting other passionate gardeners and excellent bloggers out there. Thank you for following my garden blog, I appreciate you all. This is not a final goodbye but goodbye for now. Farewell to my little garden?
