Our Cucumber Cage – made with twigs found in neighborhood garbage piles!  You should have seen me with a saw and my kids in the wagon going house to house last Saturday morning!

The dirt pile is now dug out…what to do, save for flagstone or lay down pea gravel only to have to dig it all out when money for flagstone is available????  Ugh.

Mon petit artist.


This past weekend I emptied the pond, repositioned most of the interior stones, bleached it, scrubbed it – et voila.  Noise to drown out traffic down the road.

Joel and Aidan live for radishes.  French Breakfast is our favorite – go figure.

Onions and Frisée.

My little co-workers.

Splish Splash.  One of these days I am going to make it bigger and instead of bleach to keep it clean I am going to use those natural pool chemicals and on 100 degree days I am going to JUMP IN!

Art in the park.

Well, I crashed myself at nap time but I am throwing up these photos before chickens and I go to the park to play soccer.  They are so excited!

This morning we planted about 8 tomatoes, 17 peppers (all kinds) and some zucchini plus we planted 3 types of cucumbers in our cucumber house and then did some drawing, garden photography and garden work (I get so caught up in the growing of the food that suddenly my flower gardens become weed gardens!!!) – all in the name of “house teaching” which is what Aidan calls, Homeshcooling.
I have no idea what is for dinner but I can tell by looking at our potager that pretty soon the ideas will be over flowing!!!!
