This summer feels magical - the garden, the heat, the river. I'm loving the heat this year - thriving. The solstice is comin' up on Monday; Father's Day Sunday. We've got a day long paddle planned for Sunday - complete with a wine & cheese picnic. Monday will be outside, fire, spirits, homemade chocolate cake. Our home computer crashed this past week = all gone. So, a little less computer time these days as you might have noticed. My Grandma is back at her home today after days spent in the hospital - I'm so glad you're home! Pics from our week:

The first planting of winter squash is done. Vines cut now & these squash drying in the sun. Second planting coming up.

Levi picking his first zucchini!! Which we ate tonight on homemade pizza.

Big Mama kousha squash. 6 vines = 6 hefty squash.

Waiting on the ice cream man who never drove by - just teased us with his music. Next time...

Loofa vines headed for the barn/garage roof. I saved these seeds from one you grew on Nowhere Road Angie! They were still very viable = almost all germinated.

Levi is beginning to use the camera & actually get some good pics (as opposed to blurs) - here's my favorite one so far: Daddy Joe posing with Levi's new pink flamingo, who is now hanging out in the zucchinis.

Pretending to be Daddy Joe - complete with boonie hat & homemade binos, while eating his shredded wheat. I was sprouting wheat grass this week (for sandwiches) and they got away from me (fermented a bit), so I switched gears, stuck 'em in pots, and now have a few plantings of 'decorative wheatgrass' (insert laughing husband here) around the house.
