Rain! Vegetables! Milestones! And other randomness....

  • It is raining here. We haven't had rain all month. Its been very HOT and very DRY. So rain is nice. And, that's one day I don't have to water my garden.
  • Speaking of garden, the Squash Monster has taken up residence in my garden. Every time I turn around there are new full-sized squash to pick. Right now I have 7 Patty Pan Squash, a Zucchini, two Cukes, among other things, stashed away in my fridge. And that is only because yesterday I used three big squash for a huge batch of Zucchini Yeast Rolls. Zucchini, its taking over the world.
  • Part of my overabundance of zucchini came from our CSA share. I thought, for kicks, I'd post a picture of our weekly share. Crazy, huh?
(Please note Tyler's Blueberry Beard)
  • My firstborn, who was just born last week, or so it seems, has dispensed with the training wheels on his bike and is catching on with amazing speed (if I do say so myself). Jeff took his training wheels off, held him a couple times and he was off. Now he can get going himself and can ride clear across the patio, or through the yard. He still has a ways to go, but I am amazed how quickly he is catching on!
  • Tyler is turning a year old next week. How did this happen??? Jeff is lucky they don't sell babies at the grocery store, or I'd be coming home with another one every year or two.
  • And apparently, I am not the only one who has had horrible experiences with the USPS as evidenced by the comments. Jeff even showed up to make a comment, and considering he never reads the blog, I am impressed.

MY HEAVENS! Look at your produce. I have lots of more weeks to go before I really have anything to enjoy!

Love your babies for me...mine are all parents themselves.

WOW! What variety! I can't believe you got garlic scapes... did you make pesto with them? I hear you can do that...

We got garlic scapes for several weeks in a row! I made a lot of pesto and froze most of it. I also used them in some other dishes. Mmmm....
