Tasha Tuesday

Tasha continues to help me in the garden. She's there when I water, when I weed, and when I harvest. Her duties are limited to barking and running around. I'm grateful because my barking and running around skills are not what they used to be.

More and more tomatoes are ripening. Tasha barks to remind me.

I can feel the summer slipping away. The days are noticeably shorter; we lose a few minutes of light every day now. Apples are falling from the trees (just the apple trees). The morning lows are dipping lower and the afternoon highs are not as high as they were. The equinox is less than three weeks away.


  1. Tasha is a good dog! And isn't it just as surprising every year that summer is ending. I don't like extreme heat and I love autumn, but I am nevertheless always sad that summer is ending. Is it about the light?

  2. Is it a purple basil on the lower left of the photo?

  3. As you glide towards Autumn, we are heading to Spring. What a strange world.

  4. Another good use for zucchini! https://smittenkitchen.com/2016/08/summer-squash-pizza/

  5. what a marvelous scenario: putting down the garden while faithful fido stands by. Lovely.

  6. A garden plus a dog are good things. I can tell you kept up with your watering- those tomatoes look healthy.

  7. thickethouse, it may be. I feel the same.

    chm, yes indeed!

    judy, hehe...

    andrew, c'est le monde à l'envers, as they say in France. lol

    sillygirl, good idea!

    michael, if only she would stand... she's in constant motion!

    evelyn, if I didn't water, it would all be brown. It's been the daily chore this summer.

  8. it gets dark by 7:30 now. :(

    now when tasha starts picking veggies, you KNOW you have her trained. barking is important.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
