It was time today to pick G's broccoli! He was excited...I was too. I can't believe how quick thew grew. The cool thing about broccoli is that you pick the main shoot and it branches out in a bunch of little places, so you keep getting more and more. See they are already starting to come out! (click on pic for bigger)
This was the first pick of the year. I think usually we had cucumbers or maybe even a tomato first... We do have some little green tomatoes coming. I'm guessing in a week or two they will ripen up. I can't wait! It is so much easier to eat healthy when you can go in your back yard and pick fresh veggies. I love it!
I also love my hanging plant in the front of our house and I thought I'd share a pic of it. Isn't it pretty?! Its a fuchsia. I believe there are two different colors, pink and purple and pink and white. I've had both and I like this coloring the best.
Is was so stinking hot out and don't forget to add muggy to the equation. I pulled out the sprinkler. G ran through it a good amount but L was a bi afraid of it. Or maybe it was a little too cold for her liking. She kept wanting to take off her "shirt" otherwise known as a swimming suit. I tried to explain to her that it was ok to get it wet, that's what it was meant for. Poor girl is so use to baths where she strips down, that is the only way she knows how to get wet.
Speaking of swimming suits, I had to go buy one for her yesterday. Usually we have things handed down from her cousins... but the only ones we got were two pieces and I just don't think a little girl needs so dress like that. While in the store I was a bit upset that the more modest ones were the most expensive. Its like they are trying to make you buy the little skimpy two piece, less fabric, less money. Anyways I really like the one I picked, its super cute. In fact if they made it in my size I'd wear it, not that it would look as cute on me as it dose on her.
Yesterday we took a field trip out to the LYS. The kids wanted to go see the llamas. And I got to pick out some belated birthday roving! Its merino, and I love it! I can't wait to start spinning it! Its so yummy and soft! I also got some carpet warp just in case my drive band breaks, and for tying up skeins of my hand spun. I'm thinking I want to make socks out of it... but I'm not sure. Maybe something for my winter wardrobe, but that seems so far away. Any suggestions?!
