The Garden…..So Far

The first set of plants that we planted didn’t fare so well.  This is round two and everything looks to be growing well.  Glen and I try to go out and check on the plants daily.  I even go so far as to sweet talk the plants.  Hey….every little bit helps, right?

Image

These are some of our peppers.

Zucchini…

Spaghetti Squash…am hoping this plant does well.  I love spaghetti squash!

Image

Some of our many tomato plants.  We finally got some rain, but with that rain came cooler temperatures.  Notice the many, many mushrooms/toadstools growing all over the place.  Hoping all of our tomato plants do exceptional as well.   There aren’t many foods that I love more than a home grown tomato.  Plus, I am looking forward to canning.

The Creation of a Monster

Lilly is not an outside kitty for numerous reasons….

Image

Glen started taking Lilly outside this last winter to see how she would react.  He has continued to take her outside and recently set her down in the nice lush grass.  She loved it.  Now we have to live with her meowing/howling to be let outside.  She has even resorted to waking us up at night.  She has become a single minded beast.  Convincing/retraining her is going to be painful for all concerned.

Mo’s Favorite Flower

All of us grand-kids called my grandmother Mo.  She was an incredible lady.  Her favorite flower was the iris, so every time I see one I think of her and smile.

Hay Art

There is a farmer on my way to work that periodically creates art out of hay bales.  Here they have created a minion from Despicable Me.

Morel Hunting

My good friend Vickie came over this last Saturday and we ended up hunting for morel mushrooms.  It was a glorious sunny, warm day, perfect for ‘shroom hunting.  The only drawback to hunting for morels is you have to crawl through the woods to find them.  Since it has warmed up so nicely the ticks were out in full force.  I ended up with about 10 ticks on me. 

Image

This is Vickie and one of the first mushrooms that was found.

Image

The morels were growing really big and looking oh, so delicious.

Image

See what I mean by big?

Image

Vickie got a nice haul of mushrooms.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
