{July Happenings}

Alright.

#1 My friend Russell adopted the calico kitten from the farm. It is super adorable to see a large, large man with a tiny, cute kitten. Especially because Russell's nickname is Kittenheart.

#2 I will have a few more (and some of the last!) kitten pictures posted soon.

#3 Our cucurbits are flowering in my Mom's garden, though I feel like everything happens more slowly in her garden than it should.

#4 The sugar snap peas are dead. Many of them were knocked over and severely damaged in a major thunderstorm.

#5 Squirrels and/or dogs are messing with every garden bed, and the sunflower patch has been almost completely unsuccessful.

#6 The herbs and flowers I planted did not sprout, though I'm unsure of the optimal time to seed them, so it was somewhat expected.

#7 Rain is coming pretty regularly this summer, which is a blessing and a joy.

#8 The three tomato plants I bought from Ukrop's are all doing very well and are producing tomatoes. Note to self: Starting tomatoes from seed requires one persons (or more!) full attention starting in January(ish).

#9 I wish I knew what flowers were blooming right now, but I don't.

#10 Our mint bed is doing FABULOUS and makes me very happy. It has provided us with delicious home-made mint iced tea and fresh mojitos.

#11 Acorn has sunflowers. Some of them were planted by me. This makes me incredibly, amazingly happy.

just an FYI. They should be beautiful from out where you are.

Thanks Russell! I posted a lot of information about the shower on our notice board and had two starry-eyed friends come lay on the trampoline with me for the show. It was beautiful. I even saw one really long, slow one at 9:30pm
