We have a few flowers blooming in the yard, but I don’t feel right picking them when they are still working hard to grow. At the store this morning, I saw they had wildflower bouquets with rosemary in them, and I thought to myself- I definitely can do that.

summer veggies, pt 1
first trip to the zoo
In the kitchen: The world’s biggest bowl of pasta salad for a summery Sunday dinner.
Outside: We sadly lost part of a big tree in the storm. Our shade will be missed, but the garden will be happy with a touch more sunshine.
Reading: Be Your Own Herbalist. For using all the herbs growing in the garden.
The worst bedtime chore: Filling the humidifier. Whoever designed it clearly never tried to do it while also holding a tired baby.
Enjoying: Our weekly box of farm veggies delivered to our door. It’s like back in the day when the milkman came. And they also bring us eggs, and meat, and coffee, so it’s kinda the best.
Hoping: Our biggest tomato will be ready soon! We have bacon in the fridge just waiting to be a BLT!
the first day of spring
We celebrated the chilly temperatures with a little fire! Jon made the fire while I pushed the stroller around and around. Once the fire was going, and a nap was achieved, we enjoyed some toasty s’mores together. An excellent afternoon date in the backyard.
And those jumbo marshmallows- so big! Delicious, but comically large.
