It is crazy how much everything can grow overnight. I took a few pictures last week that I meant to post but when I looked back at them I realized everything just about tripled in size. We recently added a second raised bed with green beans, carrots, spinach, more peppers, collard greens and onions, but it doesn’t look like much now since we did a lot by seed this time. But for now, here’s what’s growing in our garden. I love going outside every morning to water our plants and see what’s going on in there. We’ve had a few little critters munching on some of the leaves, but since we’re going the organic route it’s to be expected. But no harm done so far! We’ve already eaten a bunch of cherry tomatoes, handfuls of fresh herbs, a green pepper, and about three bags of lettuce.

This weekend we headed over a fair we’ve been driving by for a few weeks. From the road it looked huge but it didn’t live up to our expectations. It didn’t even have the ONE thing I go to the fair for …. grilled corn! These people need to get their act together. I did end up having a lemonade the size of my head (Did I mention we just put a lemon tree in our backyard? I’m looking forward to fresh squeezed lemonade this summer!) and fries covered in bright orange cheese. Yummm!
We didn’t go on any rides, I really don’t trust those things to fling me up in the air and bring me back down safely even though when I was younger I was first in line for all of them. But we did play a few games, and gave all our expensive prizes to Hailey (who was more interested in saying “Hiiiiiii” to the elephant with the toothbrush than anything else). I didn’t take too many pictures, because well, there wasn’t much to see! Where’s the Broward County Fair when you need it?
