I got a chance to visit the Tomato Man this weekend. Since I grew my own tomato plants from seeds this year, and I feel like five varieties is probably plenty, I did not get any tomato plants. But I did pick up a few pepper plants so I can try to make salsa this summer if my plants produce at all. I got three different kinds so we can do taste tests to see what we like: Jalapeno, Habanero, and Garden Salsa. (I don't know how to do the little dealy bop on top of the N's) Also got a sweet pepper, Blushing Beauty, for grilling or whatever. I love this page on the tomato man's site with growing tips for our hot summer climate. I think it will be fun to further mortify the neighborhood by mulching my front yard tomato plants with straw. Also really liked to hear that I don't have to take the suckers off the plants, I hate doing that and don't really see the point.

I think I could make this ottoman and I have some pretty cool fabric. The laminate project has finally turned a corner and it now looks like I will come out of this with my house intact. If I am friends with you and have been out of contact, please forgive me. I can't function without a home and that includes using a phone.

We are going on day 4 of complete demoralization, complete annihilation of the home or any sense therof. No one in my household has anywhere to eat or rest or relax. The cats are covered in what is probably asbestos. I feel like I am trying to run underwater and have started eating heartburn medicine like candy.

I'm back and you should see the house, or you will see the house whenever I get it together to post pics. The kitchen is about done so I figured we should rip out the carpet and if there's any disgusting brown institutional linoleum underneath why not rip that out too. My house is more of a war zone that it has ever been and will remain so for the entire week. I am very grumpy today so that is all I will post.
