My garden!

Okay, it's finally seemed to hit a streak of 80 degree weather here in the northeast and my garden is finally starting to do good things.

This is my lone zucchini. My squash plants were starting to die. And I managed to bring them back to life.

These are my tomatoes just waiting to turn red. I have a couple of heirloom tomato plants mixed in there too.

I have lots of hot peppers. I have hungarian wax peppers and you run of the mill green hot peppers!

This is my biggest success. Cucumbers! This is about half of my total bounty so far, I figure I have about 13 or so of them that will be ready to pick soon.

My beans are just starting to come in to. For some reason I couldn't get my carrots or beets to grow this year. I had a great crop of snap peas. It made it all worthwhile to grow a garden when my son finally started to eat some of the peas.

Cute story segments

I think I've decided that I'm going to post cute things that my son does in an attempt to remember them. I've told myself that I'm going to write them down and it never happens so....

My son is getting speech therapy. He was born 1 month premature and there are signs that the muscles in his mouth are a little weak. He's been doing well, getting speech therapy for about 2 months now. It's worked wonders.

So, this weekend I've been trying to get him to nap when he's been miserable. The summer humidity is kicking in and he's been very emotional. So, I tell him he needs to close his eyes and go to sleep. If he opens them, I'll say "Close your eyes". So last night, I'm telling him that it's bedtime and he needs to close his eyes. He says to me...."Mommy.......eyes." It took me a minutes to figure out that he was telling me to close his eyes. I just laughed.... I think he might just be smart enough to know that if I close my eyes, I won't be able to see that he hasn't closed his.....

Oh, and a recipe to come later.

Please bear with me.

Hi everyone. I have a lot of pictures to post.... however my computer has no more memory. I recently purchased a new one, I just have to get it up and running. Then I will have CSA, Farmer's Market and Garden pictures to post. This should happen this week.
