A Little Gardening

I just did a little tending to my garden (during Emma's nap of course). My tomato plants were looking a bit yellow but hopefully the nice watering I just gave them will help. I also pulled a lot of weeds and grass out of the bed. My pecan tree has new growth on it, but it's only 3 inches tall so it'll be a long time before I can consider it a successful plant. My fig tree has tiny baby figs on it! I don't know if they'll grow enough to be edible this year but at least I haven't killed it yet!

I really wish we had something in the backyard for Emma to play on. I've been looking on Craigslist and have found a few things, but by the time I contact the seller the item is gone. I've found one little playscape with a slide on Amazon that's only $150, plus tax and shipping. That's about the best deal I've found for something new. I really hope to get something for her soon, so she'll stop playing on the steps. I'm afraid she's going to fall again and hit her head. Or just walk right off the patio.
