Sorry this post wasn't up sooner, but we've been a bunch of slackers here the past several days.
Over the weekend the four of us partied until 9 p.m. on Friday with friends (way past our bedtimes). I had a beer with a Mexican food lunch on Saturday with two of my best girl friends talking about big life changing events while the boys and Uncle Joe did boy stuff at turtle park. And then we all skipped church on Sunday to play and plant in the garden all day.
The lettuce is coming along nicely. As are the onions. And I was able to have the first salad of the season last night with swiss chard and a little olive oil and balsamic. Soon, we'll have spinach, broccoli, cucumbers to add.
And the mint is emerging from its winter sleep.
Pease are quickly becomming my most favorite Spring garden veggie. They seem to grow right before our eyes, their little arms reaching out for the trellis and each other. Wyat thinks the peas must be friends with each other because they wrap their little "feelers" out toward their neighbor.
Zane spied the first blooms on the strawberry plants. This year we have plans for some nets to keep the birds away from the berries before we can get to them.
I remember a girl I knew in elementary school named Heather and all she used to wear was purple (once in awhile she'd throw some pink in to mix it up). Her lunch box was purple, her clothes were purple, her room was purple. She was the girly-est girl I knew. She was my friend. But, I was quite the opposite...a tom boy so to speak. I wore jeans and t-shirts and my favorite color was yellow. I wasn't big on the colors pink and purple anyway, but if meant being a girly girl to like purple...no thank you ma'am.
It seems I have always gravitated to primaries, yellows and reds, more than pastels.
However, my front flower beds are starting to look like Heather had a hand in planting them. I'm still not sure how this happened. But, I can't seem to get enough of the blues and purples against the lime greens. So yummy! Perhaps I should write an apology letter to Heather.
OK, so enough about the garden. I know what you really want to know...
