Strawberry bed #1 Waiting for some weeding attention. ;)
Mark and Ella, working on a puzzle. I love these two.
Sourdough bread, the last time I baked it. But does anyone remember when I was bemoaning my sourdough bread rising problems? This is that same recipe, right here. And look at that rise! I was so proud of myself. (Now that we're in this trial period of eliminating gluten, I really miss baking bread. I tried a g-f bread recipe this past week and it was so disappointing. I couldn't even finish one slice. There's just no comparison.)
Our side yard-- all green and flourishing. I love this little area, all overgrown with ferns and hosta and bleeding hearts and peonies and other perennials. One of the reasons I love this area so much is that we did it ourselves (see back to this post), and I remember what a fun family project this was.
Peonies! Peeking over the picket fence. These make me so happy.
Tomatoes in the galvanized buckets, strawberries in the planters, a little pot of thyme.
Our strawberries just a week ago, when they were first beginning to ripen. (For the past few days we've been able to pick a handful of ripe berries per day!)
Strawberry bed #2 (and my toes), as I wonder what happened to that dead section
in the center of the bed.
