I was going to do a part two of our day at Sea World, but both of my girls put up lots of photos, and most who read my blog read theirs too, so I decided not to do more. If you want to see more pics of our day at Sea World, go to my blog roll on the right, and visit Life In The Hass House, and Flip Flops & Sippy Cups. You can see all of the fun there.
Moving on to my summer garden. Oh how we are enjoying it's bounty!!! Making BLT's with freshly picked tomatoes and lettuce! Grilling squash, and enjoying the crisp flavor of a freshly picked cucumber in a salad. Making salsa with all of my own garden fresh ingredients. My corn is nearly ready to be picked, and I have 4 more gigantic tomato plants that are almost ready to deliver the gorgeous plump beauties that should keep us in tomatoes all summer long. I did have one big surprise in my garden this summer too. I planted what I thought were two varieties of cucumbers. However, one of these turned out to be cantaloupe! Which has a very similar leaf and flower to the cucumber plant. But when the fruit it was producing began to look more like fuzzy orbs than long prickly cucumbers, I got suspicious. The seeds were mismarked. Both cucumber and cantaloupe seeds look very similar. So now I have bazoodles of cantaloupe, looking yummy and getting bigger every day in the warm summer sun. I can't wait!!
The girls all got to come out for some free ranging for the very first time on Sunday when I cleaned the coops. They were loving it too. In a few short weeks, I will be having 7 eggs a day. Here is Sammy below. She is a beautiful Americauna. She will be laying pale green eggs.
chickens too. He was a wealth of information! It was a long night, and a busy week cleaning the fridge, and then switching them out, and switching out the one in the garage too. But it is all done now. I wonder what will break next?
Today Noah and I are meeting Gennifer and Jake and the girls at my Mom's to have a little picnic lunch with Mom and Nana. I think since Jake is coming, we will probably have a nice boat ride too.
Stay cool out there. It is going to be another scorcher!!! See you soon.
