Not a Lot of Garden News

Well, the tomato plants are taller, but not a lot of ripe tomatoes.  Some of that, I know, is that the City's trees shade things more than the tomato plants prefer.  Some is that we got so little truly warm summer weather.

The herbs are doing well.  Some of the purple basil is sending up flowers. 

The Lily of the Valley is setting its seed.  The little berries will get more red before they drop off.  I doubt they're edible, but haven't researched it.

The morning glories are, well, glorious in the morning, when I get up that early (or stay up that late).

Job hunting is, well, what it has been this year. 

I'm going to be staying in Chicago with my Aunt for a while, though I'll likely be back and forth to some degree.  This may impact how often I post, and will almost certainly impact my use of pictures.  She's perfectly willing to share her computer, but it's a Mac.  I don't know if I'll be able to access any of my files that aren't stored online without visiting my sister, who is nearby, but the people at her house use their computers a lot more than my Aunt uses hers!  I'm taking the poor broken laptop that I got my daughter a few years ago; I'll be able to use it if I can get it to turn on.  But the on button has gone from flaky to almost never working, so I'm not holding my breath.  I'll cheer if I luck out, though.

But now I'm going to copy lots of stuff to my USB drive.  Hopefully, I'll be able to use that stuff!
