We Grew Some Carrots

Last spring I made a list of veggies we like to eat that we could grow in a garden.  We eat a lot of carrots, so why not grow some?  

We have had a great harvest, plenty for us to eat and to share.  I believe we have had so many in such a little space because Joseph was a tremendous help when planting the seeds (wee, tiny seeds...spread by the little boy fist full).  Dad once told me he had a hard time thinning out plants cause that means you are disposing of a perfectly good plant.  I feel the same way, so when the directions stated to thin out the plants, I couldn't imagine tossing those little sprouts aside...I let them grow as they were.  This resulted in some crowding in the short row. 

 Let's just say our carrots got a little close and personal. 

That's all I'm sayin', we try to keep this blog family friendly, ya know.

Many Blessings

Gallbladders, earthquakes (the shakes as they are called around this house), hurricanes, vertigo, rubbing thighs, processing/articulation issues, learning to dress ourselves, bored children of an early childhood education major...whatever our troubles may be, let us not forget to stop and count our blessings. 

This wee one is certainly up there on my blessing list.

The Ice Cream Man

Due to computer failure, downloading issues, and general anxiety, I have been lax in posting here recently.

This is a picture montage of a trip to Grandma and Grandpa McAloon's from three trips ago...but I'm thrilled to be be sharing it with you now.

And now presenting...The Ice Cream Man.

the anxiety

the choices

the wonderment

the joy

the ears

the snitching of another's treat

the dare-you-to-take-it-back, Buster
It was a good time.
