July 2, 2011

It's been another beautiful day here. What was even better was I got let out of school (oops, work) early. I came home to play in our beautiful garden.

I picked a few radishes and a few fingerling carrots to add to tonight's dinner. I love being able to go and pick and see what my mind comes up with for a side dish.

Oh and DH is shucking the peas he picked this morning. Those are going to be blanched and frozen for eating this winter. Yum, yum..... I can hardly wait to taste their unique freshness in the dead of winter.

The pictures of the garden were taken from the roof... obviously. You'll see the gardening boxes and then as he moves the camera you will catch the small and scattered in-ground plots which are all over the back yard. But, hey... as I drive around this area and look to see what others are growing, well their gardens are relatively small compared to what we are doing.

These pictures were taken about 3 days ago... and since that time, we need to take more to show the growth occurring with this great weather we are having.

Amazing views from your roof, Cita. You are the growingest woman I know and I love that you are working too. Cheers, my Sister-Friend.
