Today has turned out to be a beautiful day. The sun is trying to peak out amongst the clouds. We had some rain, not much though. My husband surprised me for my birthday with a Kindle Fire, my son, a beautiful necklace and this afternoon the door bell rang and there was a special delivery of roses from my sister and parents. I told everyone not to do anything. I am however, looking forward to going out to eat tonight, we are planning on getting BBQ. It’s been a while since we’ve had good old fashioned brisket, corn, Cole slaw……………and it just sounds good. Especially, when I don’t have to cook ….hehehehehe!!!!
The corn has really taken off since we had that bad storm. Remember when the storm and winds caused our corn to lay flat down on the ground, requiring Bulldog Man and I to create support? Well lookie ….lookie, we have several red-headed women (I mean corn) standing up and looking prettyJ .
The celery planted in pots has bolted and gone to seed. Time to pull the seeds and dry them for next year’s planting.
The ginger that came home with my son (you know the one; the company he works for was going to toss out). Well it apparently likes its new home. It has produced flowers and now new leafs and branches.
My Roma tomatoes have taken off, and started producing tomatoes. Hopefully the little green fruit will turn into large vibrant red tomatoes.
Bulldog Man saved a part of a tree trunk we cut down weeks ago. I figured I would borrow the bird bath idea from one of my Sweet Blogger Friends, Kymber. When I went into town, I purchased a deep plate for $1.00 from The Dollar Tree store. This weekend sometime, I will be putting the entire contraption together and moving my old bird feeder relatively close to the homemade bird bath.
I picked up a 1/2 bushel of peaches from the local Farmers Market the other day and made peach jam. I used Cindy Burke’s recipe from the Culinate.com website. The jam came out very tasty and really good. http://www.culinate.com/recipes/collections/Contributors/cindy_burke/peach_preserves
