We are picking snap peas out of the garden, and a few kohlrabi as well. Little Sprout is adorable about it. She loves fresh snap peas straight out of the garden, and so she runs across the yard yelling "Peas, Pwease!" at the top of her lungs. Of course I go pick her some (how could I say no?) and then we have the fight over whether or not she is going to be patient and wait for me to 'snap' the peas. Of course, it won't hurt her to eat the strings and little blossom ends that are still stuck on the peas....but it's the principle of the thing. You are supposed to snap the ends off and 'de-string' the peas before eating! Little Sprout just wants to pop them in her mouth.
Greedy little thing. :D
We have a few little green tomatoes here and there, and the broccoli plants all have little heads on them. The cabbage looks beautiful, and the beans are doing what beans do best....grow like gangbusters!
We stopped at the local nursery on Monday to fill in a few places where we had lost plants. Unfortunately, I just can't seem to grow any kind of melon. I bought some new to fill in where the original plants had died, and am hoping to keep these ones alive. We also had lost a couple of tomato plants and peppers to unknown causes (the neighbor's dog jumping in my garden beds is my bet) so those were replaced, as well.

Monday was a big day for the Barefoot Family. We were all going to go to a water park, but the chilly/rainy weather put a hold on that one. So instead, we went to a deer farm and let the Sprouts run around and feed the animals. It was really fun, since this year Little Sprout is old enough to understand what is going on. She got nipped a couple of times feeding the animals. She just couldn't figure out how to get the corn to stay on her palm with her hand flat. So her little fingers would end up in an animal's mouth.
Anyway, that is what I have been up to lately....I know it isn't much, and I hope to get back in the swing of things here soon....
