Been busy busy lately

Sorry I have not been blogging lately. I have been going to all the doctors with my hubby. He has a mass on his brain and they have sent him to a bunch of doctors to have it checked out. Today we spent all day at the hospital with him doing test to make sure he is healthy enough for the surgery they have to do to remove it. We will have to wait for a call from the doctor now to see where we go from here. All this waiting is driving us crazy.
Have some tomatoes left, we are getting from one half to one dozen each day. They have been great. We have bunches green ones left. Sure hope it doesn't get real cold before they turn red.

They have done a job on my roses, now leaves look like lace. My tomatoes are not ripe yet sure wish they would hurry up I am ready for some good fresh tomatoes.

Tomato Garden

Haven't had much chance to be in the yard and garden this week do to medical problems my hubby and I have. This week has been spent seeing doctors and going for test. Hope most of that is over for a few weeks.
Was checking on my tomato garden this morning, some pictures of it. I have some tomatoes on two of the early girl tomato plants and some on one of the Better boy plants. Should not be long before we have some tomatoes to eat.
