I always have the best of intentions, to begin seriously thinking about Christmas, at the half way to, mark. But how can it possibly already be here? We have scaled way back for the holidays, and I make a good many of the gifts we give. So now it is time to get busy. Maybe manana.
I am missing my camera SO much! I take photos EVERY day! Greg is going to send it in to be fixed, hopefully this weekend. My photos are just so/so. And all are from my iphone.
The weather has been lovely. Cool and overcast in the morning. Making it nice to do the morning chores before it gets too hot. The garden continues to be a favorite place for me to be. I putter out there first thing in the morning after taking the feed out to the chickens. I have grown sunflowers a few times before. But never have they been this healthy looking. I smile every time I see them.
They are dinner plate size, and new buds are opening every day. Yesterday while I was doing the watering for a neighbor who is on vacation, I could see their happy yellow faces from quite a distance away.
Next to the corn patch, I have planted Indian Corn. I have never grown this before, and am eager to see what I wind up with. They are popping their little heads up out of the soil, and standing like soldiers at attention.
Last night, I picked a few heads of broccoli for dinner, and also all of the salad fixings.
fresh picked broccoli and my own garden fixings, made for a delicious meal.
The thrifting has been a bit sparse lately. Noah is out of school, and I prefer to do my treasure hunting alone.
One day last weekend, I popped into one of my favorite haunts and found these adorable vintage glass spice jars.
You can take the girl out of the garden, but you can't take the Garden out of the Girl!
