Had this plan of waking up early to get some gardening done today… Well, that went straight in the sh*tter from the get go. Woke up around 12:30’ish after a nightmare about something awful happening to my sister. So that basically set the tone for the day… 
Saved this little one from drowning earlier. Crawled on my lap for a while before the stinger missile hit its mark.
I moved like a slug all day, sat on the porch for a while & when I finally got out to start the actual gardening I got attacked by a nasty little black & yellow f**ker who stung me on the side of my face. Made me look like Quasimodo for a little while there. But I put on some plantain leaves right away & went inside & rummaged through my medicine cabinet & found some antihistamines to chuck down just in case. Felt a little woozy at the beginning, but now it just hurts from my jaw & up to my ear, nothing more. Yay… Got some planting done later in the evening, but it wasn’t very enticing being out there after that. But at least I got some of my plants in the ground…

I always put eggshells around my tomatoes, keeps the slugs away.

Put the sage between my tomatoes this year. They smell so good!

The fourth has almost passed & gone here now… But all of you across the pond still have fireworks to see, cold beverages to drink & loved ones to enjoy the evening with. So happy 4th of July to every single one of you! Wish I was there to celebrate.
