How has your summer been? I've been busy..busy in the garden,busy on day trips, busy around the house, and busy trying to get some relaxation in there.
The garden is coming along nicely and have already made some mental notes for next years garden. Like..plant 3 times the amount of zucchini because we are already out. I had one plant that didn't produce anything! I've learned my lesson with watermelons..as in, don't even bother in this climate. I'm waiting on my blue jade corn to come into harvest as well.
I've been hitting up the local second hand shops and was thrilled to finally find an egg wire basket! is it no the neatest thing ever? The second hand shops here are for the most part seriously disappointing but every so often you can score something fabulous.
We've gone on a bunch of nature walks..I'm determined to soak up as much vitamin d as possible before the long dark days of winter hit us..and you know they are coming!
In just a few short weeks the boys will be heading off to school and my husband will be headed off for a new job adventure. So for now please excuse my absence. I am loving the time with my family and will return soon.
I have so many things to share with you all..I finally made a sourdough starter that is thriving. I've baked so much bread it's unreal. I'm learning new ways of stretching the food budget. So stay tuned and I wish you all a wonderful summer!
