Good morning. I was going to do this post last night, but I think I would have fallen asleep half way through. Yesterday, I had an appointment with my daughter to get my hair done. I decided I had had enough of the long hair. It was hot, and unruly, and I wound up wearing it twisted up in a clip most of the time. So when I got there I told her to cut it off!
After I got my hair cut, I ran over to the Goodwill Bookstore. If you live in Corona or Norco, and you are a reader, I highly recommend you visit this fabulous place! They have a very good children's selection, from toddler to youth. And a good variety of everything else. They run a buy one, get one deal too. Paper backs are 1.99 and hard backs are 2.99. But you get two for that price. I got these two books for my next read.
Meredith suggested, called The Last Summer. By Judith Kinghorn. If you are a fan of Downton Abbey, you will love this book! Thanks Mer!!
I have been on a huge blueberry kick lately. They are so good this summer! I put them in my yogurt, on cereal, eat them plain like candy, and can't get enough. Sprouts had them on sale in their Wednesday ad for 99 cents a pack. So Greg and I had to run out to stock up last night. I made another one of those delectable Buttermilk Blueberry cakes that my Canadian friend Linda featured on her blog a while back. I think this was the 4th or 5th time I have made this cake. DIvine!!
Yesterday evening, on my garden tour, I brought my camera, so that I can document how my garden has progressed, week to week. I walked out there, just as the sun was heading down, and the light was so pretty at that time.
My cabbage heads are absolutely enormous! I have always wanted to plant this, just because I think it is so pretty.
My very first watermelon, not quite ready for slicing!
Loads of fuzzy cantaloup are forming now.
I am thrilled with the way my pumpkins are thriving! I have planted them before, and never had any luck! Not this time!!!!

A little off subject here....I wanted to show you my star cubes. I had used the zest of off a couple of large lemons for my blueberry cake, and didn't want to waste the juice of the lemon. So I froze the juice in my star ice cube tray.
Well, that's it from the farm.
Go plant something, water it, and watch it grow!
