Garden Growth

At end of this past weekend SPH declared: "I feel almost as if we've been on vacation!"

I agreed.

Great dinners Friday and Saturday night with good friends, our community's Spring Fling (bounce houses, touch-a-truck, fishing in a small pond, etc), R's last spring soccer game which featured him scoring two goals, inaugurating our new slip n' slide and lots of enjoyable work in the yard.

Our garden is growing:


Our small spring garden has sweet peas (of course!), collards, garlic, red onions, cilantro, basil and parsley. Soon the rest of the seedlings will be transplanted, and we're hoping we might have some actual vegetables to garden!

But we're already seeing signs of hope:


Our sweet lilac bushes are intoxicating us with their fragrance and the sun has returned...well, not counting the early morning thunderstorms.

It's a good time to be in the garden, especially with hopes of harvesting some of what we reap and creating with it in the kitchen.

Our meals for the week are low-key and laid-back, perhaps due to the vacation-y feel of the weekend:

Tex Mex Hodge Podge (from our weekend meals)
Grilled Chicken Sausages in Pita, Hummus, Marinated Cucumbers
Macaroni and Cheese with Bacon and Broccoli
Grilled Tofu and Spinach Salad

Peas and love-
