What are you growing? Any mystery plants in your garden? Have any good pumpkin recipes to share?
I don’t know about you, but I am beat.
You may have noticed a few changes in appearance at this little blog. I’ve been playing around with the layout and I’d love your feedback!
As for weekend plans, I have a long run (as long as my feet cooperate), a baby shower and possible dinner with friends. At the very least, I have some much needed hubby-time penciled in and I cannot wait!
Other than that, I don’t have to much to report today, but I wanted to share this garden picture… mostly because I think it’s pretty neat.
Squash has taken over the garden!
I realize I haven’t been posting much about the garden this year, so to be continued!
Happy Weekend! Any big plans?
What are you growing this season?
I am happy to report that I was able to drag myself–and Farmer Ben!–out of bed for a run this morning. 3.34 miles and a photo. Look for it in next week’s GBN post! This series is off to a great start…and by great start I mean… I started!
Unfortunately my breakfast put a bit of a damper on my day…. I wasn’t able to make breakfast this morning so I was starving by the time I got to work…and I had no snacks in my desk. Le sigh. I was offered a cereal bar and was so hungry that I couldn’t say no. Beggars can’t be choosers. Lesson learned. Er… re-learned.
I thought I’d leave you with a few confessions from this week:
*I hit the snooze button this morning. Twice. Ben was NOT happy.
*I could really go for a BLT.
*I get incredibly grumpy if I skip breakfast… or lunch… or snack time. What I’m saying is, that if I’m hungry, I’m not pleasant.
*I’m the weirdo that sits at their desk eating cherry tomatoes and cucumber slices. And enjoys it.
*I’ve been so happy eating salad, fresh herbs, swiss chard, potatoes, beets and beets greens, beans and peppers from the garden…but nothing compares to Farmer Ben’s tomatoes. Life on the food front has been amazing.
*I desperately want a coffee. In and around my mouth.
*This weekend, this needs to happens.
*I get to have lunch with LizDukes today and am incredibly excited!
*Farmer Ben made me smile with these pictures. (I have a soft spot for oddly shaped foods).
Enjoy your weekend! Happy running…and eating!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; local food just tastes better! Especially if it’s from your own backyard. There’s just something about knowing exactly how your food is grown and being able to pick it at its peak freshness. It never gets old.
Monday, I had the pleasure of assisting Farmer Ben in the garden… with my current work schedule, it hasn’t happened enough lately. Needless to say, it was glorious. It felt good to dig right into the dirt and pull out all the things we’ve grown. I think I enjoyed the potatoes the most–so much fun!
So… I’ll say it again… nothing compares to fresh picked food. It’s just amazing.
Here are just a few pictures of our garden adventure:
It feels so good seeing the fruits (and veggies) of our labor.
I am so blessed to have such a talented, hard-working hubs! Thank you, Farmer Ben!
