Happy Memorial Day and First Crop!

On this holiday I'm so very proud to be an American and am very grateful for all of those who have served, and those who continue to serve, to protect our Country.........
I am thankful for all of you.
I am also thankful for having most of what I want and all of what I need....
But by working hard and providing it for myself.
This is the very first of the vegetables from the little garden I have behind my Shoppe downtown. I laughed last year when I planted it thinking all the people around me would think I was crazy.....
I mean....a garden Downtown Arlington?
Still, I have nearby office workers that drop in just to see how it's doing.
And so far, I have a radish for everyone :)
And the herb garden continues to flourish.


If you had ever seen the back lot before we started working on it with all the asphalt and rocks, then you would truly appreciate these few little radishes. So far, I would estimate with all we have spent getting the dirt ready, each radish is worth about $100.00 each.
Here's hoping he remainder of the "crop" comes in this year!
Have a safe, happy Memorial Day!
And thank you for stopping by,
I always love it when you come!

  1. Ohhhhh, I know the $100 a radish thing very well.Only mine was just plain old dirt. Year after year in order to grow my tomatoes and peppers I was spending hundreds of dollars on just dirt. I had raised planter boxes and for some reason the dirt literally "went away" Don't know where - even two landscapers couldn't explain it.
    Needless to say those planters are gone and I grow my tomatoes in a pot. LOL.
    But I think what you've done is wonderful! Gosh I wish I were closer!
    GREAT JOB! Enjoy the fruits of your labor!
    Have a wonderful Memorial Day!
