Six Word Saturday and Shadow Shot Sunday 5-25-2013

My green babies need warm weather.....
Some vegetables are already planted in my garden,
however a few days ago we had a cold snap. From
40F at night to 30F meant plants had to be covered
or risk getting frozen......so these starts are waiting
for a few days before joining the rest of the gang
in the garden. I have hot peppers, eggplants, tomatoes,
zucchini and butternut squash waiting for a few more days...
In the garden there are already kale, beans,garlic,onions,
basil (very covered up!), potatoes, lots of herbs and spinach.

Enjoy your weekend!


  1. Beautiful! You have a feast for the eyes that will become a feast for the palate.

  2. I love all the different types of shadows created in this image...

  3. We were chilly this morning. Not complaining though.
    Hope you enjoy a big garden this year!

  4. There's nothing better than fresh vegies from your own garden

  5. This post makes me hungry! :D

    I have some pansies sitting on the kitchen table, and they're in desperate need of being transferred outside. Crossing my fingers I can get them out there this weekend...

    Love the photo. The shadows are great!

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  6. Not just green babies...I could use a little warmth too, lol! I've got the heat on and my cozy slippers instead of sandals. Your garden sounds fabulous -- made me hungry just reading abou it :)

  7. Now ... my dear Ms. Kathe ~~~ we mustn't plant outdoors until the day after Father's Day ~~ I have learned the hard way. Wishing you luck with your veggies. Making me want a yard and garden, instead of two decks.

  8. Aw, six nice words from the lady with the green thumb. Best wishes for these, your spring will soon be here for good.

    I also combined, Friday with Saturday Six. My pretty ginger plants there are telling me that spring is finally here where we live.

  9. I know what you mean about your dear sweet little green babies! This year is just strange, and mother nature really needs to clean up her act!!!

  10. great to be growing so much of your own vegetables

  11. Nothing better than your own veggies. I love this time of year.

    Have a fabulous weekend. :)

  12. Luckily you have a nice spot to set them in. We also, had the cold snap and I just don't have good windows to set anything in. Lots of windows but mostly shaded due to all the big trees. When are these cold snaps going to be behind us? Soon, I hope.

  13. such a shame to have to cover them up...but better safe than sorry!! lovely shadows!!

  14. Nice shadow shot.

  15. I'm with you on the strange weather - today in CT it is cold and rainy (50°F), not at all what the season should be. My friend will be here Monday to pot tomato plants, but at least it will be 68° - cool for the season, but more like it!

  16. This tricky weather is causing problems with the plants I feel! They don't know where they are!Mind you neither do we! X

    The weather has been strange all over the globe...here in Málaga it was cool, cloudy and windy but finally it changed a couple of days ago - nice and summery now!
    Hope you'll get warmer (shadow) weather soon! :)

    And there was me, thinking California was sunshine city! (except for June gloom) :)

  19. You found lots of nice shadows~

    I am also looking forward to planting soon.

    It's cold and rainy here. Yuck!

    Have a fun weekend.

  20. All that scene needs it a stretched out cat!

  21. Your garden sounds like a feast in waiting! Fresh is best by far! And love the collection of shadows in your photo!

  22. Both people and plants ache for their moment in the sun.
