I was planning to head outside this morning to tend to my garden, but about the time I was ready to get started the sky turned black, the wind kicked up and the rain started coming down in buckets.
While my vegetable garden isn't big, it has been providing us with fresh salads every night and it won't be long until those peas will be ready for picking. Not long after that the tomatoes and cukes will fill that little garden and the fresh veggies will continue to appear on the dinner table.
Right now, before the heat becomes unbearable and the bugs try to devour my produce patch, it's an exciting time in the garden. Lots to look forward to.
Since I was disappointed to not be able to play in my vegetable garden, I decided to do the next best thing ... play in my vintage vegetable garden. On my way home from work yesterday I stopped by the thrift shop where a half off sale was in progress. Woo Hoo :)
That little tomato can lamp was calling my name. I like little lamps in the kitchen. I think they really warm up those corners, especially on dark, rainy days.
I put up my umbrella long enough to snip some thyme which is currently in bloom.
It seemed like what was needed to put in these little vintage veggie planters. The platter was something I picked up at a yard sale last summer. Not a bad find for a quarter.
My vintage vegetable vignettes are now complete and the rain has stopped so I best get out there and get to work. The garden has been well watered and the weeds will be easy to pull, so it's all good as they say.
Hoping that your Thursday is shaping up nicely.
