The Zoo with Emmy and Jayne!

My cute niece Emmy, her mom Jayne and I went to the Hogle Zoo on Saturday. It was great fun. Emmy loves the elephants, bears, and little wild cats. She wants to pet them. My kids better be this cute!

Fruition

I just dumped 4 bags of manure on my garden. Ugh.

Well despite our insanely short growing season my garden is finally starting to produce some delicious morsels. I gave three giant zucchini to my housemates family last week and more are coming along everyday! Even though i really don't have much to do with the amazing things a plant produces it's still a wonderful sense of accomplishment to walk out there pluck a crisp snow pea off the vine.Cherry Tomatoes

This is what you get when you plant a garden in the middle of a horse pasture! I do a lot of weeding.
