Today's lunch, for example, was brought by the letters Q, M, and W (Qdoba, McDonald's, and Wendy's). Why? Because we didn't have anything planned and were up against Lunchtime, and if I'm going to buy crap for the boys, I will at least buy crap they will eat excitedly. That's McDonald's. On the other hand, Scott gets really tired of McDonald's and really likes Qdoba. Normally I'd have gone with one of those two, but Wendy's had a new pretzel burger I really wanted to try.

And so it goes. Sadly, the pretzel burger is really good. Sadly because it is not the greatest choice calorie-wise. Heh.

On the other hand, as the title says, garden! Ian has this ridiculously enormous tomato plant. (It is from a seed started because he chose tomatoes, therefore, it's in his planter, therefore it's "his" tomato plant.) The thing, if it were not in a planted, would be about as tall as he is or a bit more I think. In the planter it's definitely taller.

I took 6-foot trellises and set them up adjacent to support the tomato because the tomato support has been more or less absorbed and the tomato was merrily going sideways and down from out of the overwhelmed thing. Hilarious. Now if only some of those flowers actually, yannow, become tomatoes. (No, it's not a six-foot tomato. But I had standard flimsy tomato cages, and 6-foot trellises. So.)

Today we had thunderstorms, complete with lightning. Way too daylight for any dramatic pictures to even be attempted, but I got to see the flashes and hear the thunder, and share my joy with the boys.

And remember how much my mother loved a good summer thunderstorm. Ours aren't as impressive as the ones she grew up with in Ohio, one of the things I know she missed. But they're not half bad, and I enjoy them, and I think of her.
