The summer’s end is fast approaching and we finally made the time to go to the beach. Misty ocean was as pretty as ever and the blue sky that peaked through the clouds every now and then was welcomed too.
Fresh veggies from the garden (peppers, tomato, basil) inspired the idea to make homemade pizza but I was kinda lazy to make a bunch of neat little circular ones so I made a big one to fill an entire cookie sheet…like sicilian pizza? But with thinner crust, I like thin crust.
Look at this cute heirloom tomato! I can’t believe we grew it — it looks and tastes extra fancy.
And, cantaloupe — not so little anymore!
Apparently, there’s nothing more exciting for a little kid than finding pear on a tree and pulling little carrots out from earth.
Digging up the ground to plant red currants unearthed some pretty rocks and petrified wood! I’m not sure how they got there, or if they had been there for a long time, but how neat! Also the little Japanese pear tree produces some small but deliciously sweet pears.
Tiny bowl full of mixed berries curtesy of our garden.
Unrelated but, I found these ginormous popsicle sticks at Scrap and thought that the label was cute.
We are starting to get lots of cucumbers! Long skinny ones are Japanese cucumbers.
The baby cantaloupe is visibly bigger everyday — how gratifying it is to watch!
Little spiders are welcomed in out garden, unless they are poisonous.
Perfect little lemon meringue pie from the local farmers market which we finally made the chance to go to!
