Cool and overcast today. It was all I could do to psyche myself to go out.
On my way to do a few errands I passed the Hill Street Community Garden. For a small fee you can sign up for a garden plot to use for the summer. I was jealous of the people there getting them ready to plant. I really wish I could have one. I use to years ago when I lived in Toronto and it was so nice to grow my own vegetables. Nothing is tastier than a home grown tomato. I even grew corn one year and it was delicious.
I tried cantalopes and they were sucessful, but I never got to eat one. The raccoons beat me to them.
Ah well, no point in me even trying to have a garden plot, because I know I simply don't have the strength to do it anymore. I 'll stick to having just a few tomato plants in pots in my yard and an herb garden. Herbs are very low maintenance and do well in containers. Fresh chopped parsley and chives on a baked potato Yum!!
I had to pop into the local super market. They have good maple syrup at this one and since it is the season, I thought I would treat myself. Looking forward to crepes with warm maple syrup tomorrow morning.
While browsing around I saw a "green cart", a small bag on wheels to pack your groceries in. I gave it a test run and then decided to buy it. It really is very good. Not like those annoying bundle buggies that always tip over and are hard to steer. Easy to open and close, with a good set of wheels. I bought several items and it was a breeze to cart them home. I guess my only complaint would be that the handle should be longer, but I think I can adjust it. Have to take a closer look at the thing tomorrow to see if I can.
I also bought more cold packs to help control my crazy heat waves. They had a package of them that came in long strips that you can cut to whatever length you want. I kept them long and now I just drap one around my neck to cool off. It works great!
Otherwise I haven't done much. I felt really tired and weak today. I hope I can rally tomorrow and get out to do at least a bit of gardening.
