Only a few so far, and they aren't really ready yet, but I stole a few anyways.
For stir fry! I am also getting down to the end of my frozen veggies from last season, so I think I'm starting to get how much we need to put away for our family. I had plenty of peppers and beans, but definitely need more tomato sauce this year.
I had to do a little wildlife control on the front porch. Despite my best bamboo skewer efforts, the darn sparrows are building nests in my newly planted baskets. Luckily they were caught just as they were starting to build - they had just pushed my skewers out of the way, LOL!
More skewers, and we are back in business
I had to break out the big guns for the darn mahogany wasps. They are huge, I hate them and their sting packs quite a punch. I do everything I can for all the bees, but these guys have got to go, they always build their nests right over the front door and in the kids' fort. They are the only guys who get the foam spa treatment around here :)
I spent the better part of the day in the 2nd grade science classroom again, this age group is hilarious. Today was the first time I had the "yuck" reaction to the herbs. We had all kinds of herbs out for them to sniff and all we heard was "yuck" and "ewww"! The first kid said it and then of course everyone else followed suit :) The school I was in today has turned their little courtyard into a butterfly and bird habitat and are going to plant vegetables too this year. When I asked what was going in to the little bed I was standing next to (about 2 x 2) I was told squash, LOL! Guess those kids will get some entomology lessons too!
