I know I haven’t posted any pictures in weeks and weeks. So, here are a couple to fill the appetite, for those of you who wanted to see. 🙂 Enjoy.

Picking strawberries in the country. Yummm!


so this picture of me in my garden was taken three weeks ago, and it’s waaaaaay bigger now. All of the plants have overgrown the pathways, and the pumpkins are now weaving their vines through the chain link fence into the neighbor’s yard! yikes! I am getting about a gallon of green beans every 1 to 2 days. The peas are so tall now, that I will have to ask my 6’2″ husband to pick the top ones! And now I also realize why 12 zucchini plants and 15 yellow squash plants is considered TOO MANY!! lol. I have just planted my second crop of spinach, swiss chard, and lettuce. Thankfully my little boy likes to sleep in, so I can go get my gardening done in the mornings. It’s such a big job for just one person. Maybe I should have had a smaller garden for my first effort. 🙂 Oh well, I’ve somehow managed to keep up with it, and we’ll have veggies to last all year, I think. Wheeeee!! Time to start blanching and freezing. 🙂

Gabriel and I went to a Lavender Festival with my mom, and it was extremely hot that afternoon. So we got a cone of huckleberry ice cream to share. Gabriel loved it.

Here is my total 100% boy with one of his favorite toys: all-natural, completely organic pine stick. Hahaha.

  1. Love the photos!! Gabriel is getting sooo BIG! and look at that bright hair 😉

    Whew, your garden is really taking off! Ours is doing really well and we’re reaping the rewards of our labors now (yes, all that weeding is really worth it…)

    LOL about the squash and zucchini. We usually are up to our ears with that but this year we just planted “one ball” yellow zucchini and it’s awesome! Mild in flavor, not too big and not too many… yet. We ordered the seeds from PineTree in Maine and are really happy with them so far.

    Our peas are tall but yours are MUCH taller! Way to go!

    Ali and Wyatt’s pumpkins are going crazy; the vines that is. They had to trim some of them back so they wouldn’t suffocate the cosmos and snapdragons that are around them.

    Thanks for sharing; I always enjoy the updates and photos; esp of your cute little boy.

    Lots of love and hugs,

    Samantha
