Garden Vegetables

Garden vegetables from out little garden. I’m sure it’s part beginner’s luck and part the climate around here, but I’m impressed!

Little baby cantaloupe. It’s not really my favorite fruit (it’s probably technically not fruit is it?) but I just wanted to watch it grow — how cute is this little thing??

Treasure Hunting

…or grage sale rummaging anyhow. We’ve been enjoying gardening to much to do much of it this summer, but had fun out and about today! I found a vintage pipe threader, which not only looks cool but I actually have use for.

A box of legos, which is always very welcomed!

First of the tomatoes from the garden.

The veggies in the garden bed grew so big, I don’t even know what to do with it. I guess I over crowded it a little?

Roses are always a treat! Kids say it smells like raspberries, and it actually kinda does.pinkrose (1)

Willamette Valley Sunset

Spectacular sunset over farmlands — just the usual drive home from weekly errand to Wholefoods. Photo really does no justice to the experience though, of being in the [perceptual] center of the spherically panoramic ombre sky.

Raspberry Picking

More berry picking. Raspberries this time!

Grilling for Dinner

Grilling for Dinner, I like it. Because I don’t have to do it, and makes minimal mess is the kitchen for clean up. And best of all, everything is more delicious grilled!

Bread and dipping oil with sage and rosemary from the herb garden.

…And sweet sparkling cloudy sake for me.
