The week is flying and I feel like I am doing the same. The check off list is getting longer instead of shorter, but that's par for the course prior to vacation. We decided this AM to take TJ into the doctor after yet another night of being woke up with severe stomach cramps. She wouldn't let us touch her tummy, and were a little concerned about a hot appendix due to the vomiting (although that had not happened since Monday night.) All is well, and there is no obstruction or infection. So, we will ride it out, and pray it continues to subside.

We've had rain every day and hot temps so the garden is multiplying and growing quickly after a slow star. God is truly blessing us with a great growing season. I took these pictures ten days ago:


And, here they are today:



It's hard to tell, but we have purple, yellow, and green beans, beets, potatoes, sweet potatoes, banana, yellow, red, purple, and green peppers, snap peas, yellow squash, pickling cucumbers, regular cucumbers, roma, early girl, better boy tomatoes, and 4 types of heirloom tomatoes. My herb garden has lettuce, spinach, basil x 2 kinds, oregano, cilantro, peppermint, and chives. Stevia is in a container pot and I am anxious to experiment with that soon. Hopefully, we'll be in full swing of preserving once we get back from the lake!

Well, enough of my avoidance - I need to get back to the tasks at hand. Hope you all have a great day, and I'll leave you with these two little lovebirds. :)
