These Boots Are Made For...

THESE boots are made for gardening. Check out my Mom's new boots a.k.a. Predator Protectors. These boots result from a snake sighting that took place a week ago.

According to my Mom, my son spotted a snake in the backyard. Now the specifics of the size of the snake remain a little sketchy. The boys state they saw a small snake:

My mom however claims she spotted a HUGE snake:

Until this day, both parties maintain their story in regards to the size of the snake.

So I hung out with mi madre last Saturday. She made wonderful sandwiches w/homemade pickles on the side.

I even left room for a little dessert...chocolate covered strawberries.

The strawberries were leftover from the cake that my mom made.

After lunch we convened in the garden for the ceremonial cantaloupe picking . The cantaloupe as well as other goodies grew from the compost. Check out the boots.

I also checked on my herb garden during my visit. The cost of herbs at the grocery store inspired this herb garden.

So far one lemon on the lemon tree. Last year the tree was brimming with lemons ripe for the picking.
