Farmer's Market Bounty

More and more veggies are showing up at the farmer's market! Last week's spinach was replaced this week by Swiss chard. A few mushrooms are popping up and green beans are in abundance. There are still Spring onions but they are not quite as plentiful. And then of course there are several varieties of salad greens and big juicy tomatoes. We are just starting to enjoy this week's bounty and I'm already looking forward to what next week's visit to the market with bring.

Things They Leave About

Week 6 of the Six One Way project.

1. Found :: Hidden in the bed
2. Found :: Left in the kitchen
3. Found :: Forgotten in the tomatoes

I'm constantly finding things that the boys have left laying about.

Chaz is never with out a book. One morning I found a book and a comic tucked in to the mattress frame as well as two audio books slipped under his pillow. It's no wonder it's a struggle to get him up some mornings!

One of Topher's favorite pieces of clothing are these cowboy boots. I think at this point they are about 2 sizes too small but that doesn't stop him from cramming his little feet in to them. It doesn't matter what he is wearing - jeans, shorts, pajamas - in his mind, it's always appropriate for cowboy boots.

I went out to water the tomatoes and found this ferocious little guy guarding them. I'm not sure who left him there but there was a lot of Jurassic Park play going on in the garden this week.
