From Iowa, with love...

Things are finally coming together.  The garden has produced enough peas for one casserole of risotto and I've made my first batch of pesto.  Now we've got zucchini growing like crazy and it's time to make zucchini soup, bread and mixed vegetables.  It's been in the 90's the last three weeks, so I've neglected the garden somewhat.  It's probably the reason the pea plants are still there, even though they are done producing.

Rabbits continue to eat everything they can.  We have four now that have grown from cute little bunnies, nurtured by my poor flowers, into fully grown adult bunnies.  There have also been visits from four hungry raccoons and a few skunks.  Thankfully, no one was sprayed.

I've finished another project (that was hinted at in the last post) for my friends Julie and John.  They will be welcoming a baby girl in September (if not sooner!).

I am visiting them in Iowa for the weekend and tomorrow we're going to the Des Moines Farmer's Market!!!  Super excited--food, crafts, arts, music and food.  Did I mention food?    ; D
