The first zucchini has arrived

I am very excited to report that my first zucchini has arrived. May 17, 2011; 0 lbs, 1 oz; 3" long. He's a bit small but apparently if you harvest the first ones early they produce more throughout the summer. Here he is pictured with his sister the radish.

Cute Shoes for Sale

Apparently, the rumors are true.  Your feet are never truly the same after you have a baby.  So, I have several shoes I do not want to part with but they are not going to fit again.  So sad.  I would love to sell them to a friend so I don't have to take them to goodwill.  

Poetic License brown shoes with hot pink on the top.  Size 8.  Worn maybe 5 times.  Comfortable but too small for me.  $15

Mia shoes.  Size 8.  dark brown with plaid around the flower.  I heart these shoes and sad to see them go but they are just not comfortable anymore.  Worn about 5 times. $15

 These are possible the cutest shoes I have ever seen.  They are actually my sisters and therefore I will be giving her the money if they sell.  They are a really deep red crock skin look with a super cute loop on the toe.  They are from shoedazzle.  Worn once to a party and the heel is just too high for me.  I think a 9 is a little big for me too cause my toe slips forward a lot.  $20

Steve Madden heels.  If you need a basic red shoe this is a good one.  Size 9.  They have been worn the most of all of these but are still in good shape.  $10

Beautiful Shoedazzle black suede shoes with gold chains.  worn once and they are a little big and high for me.  I dream of wearing heels this high!  Size 9.  $20

Let me know if you need more information or are interested in any of these shoes.  If they are local I'll bring them to you but if you want them shipped I can do that too for whatever the sipping cost will be.

Here is the baby radish I pulled from the ground and then used in some mango salsa. Hopefully more radishes this week. See previous post for more on my garden.

Growing a Vegetable Garden

The garden is growing and I am so excited.  You can find the first garden post HERE.  The pictures below are from two weeks ago and it's even bigger now! 

In this bed I have cucumber, yellow squash, zucchini, baby yellow tomatoes, green beans, beets (not shown), jalapeno, red bell peppers and roma tomatoes.

The far right bed has tomatoes, radishes, lettuce, carrots, another tomato, green onions, banana peppers, chives, and strawberries. 
The bed on the far left has rosemary, three kinds of basil, thyme, oregano, cilantro, and something else I'm forgetting.  There are also 3 kinds of mint in pots.
 Here are the radishes.  They started from seeds and grow so fast.  My next post I will show you a radish I pulled up this week.  The rest should be ready soon.  I have never really eaten radishes but I'll be looking for some recipes.
 Only one of my 4 tomato plants is producing right now.  I hope the others hurry before it gets too hot.  The tomatoes are much bigger this week!
 This is the zucchini plant.  It is giant!  I think it's twice the size of the picture now.  This is after a hail storm and the hail went straight through the leaves of the plant.  It produces beautiful yellow flowers then the flowers fall off at the stem.  I don't think that is what should be happening so I will have to do a little reading on taking care of zucchini.  If you know what is happening- please tell me.

Slumber Party

Carsyn came over the other day for a playdate.  The kiddos were tired and I thought Dora would help extend their bedtime.  

 So cute!  Carsyn really wanted to be sleeping and Cason was more interested in Dora. 
Today I found myself singing a Dora song.  I may regret ever turning that show on.

School Easter Egg Hunt

They have an Easter egg hunt at school and it was great fun.  There was a hunt last year when he was 1 but I wouldn't so much call it a "hunt" as a "roll".  This year, it was serious.  It was every 2 year old for himself. 
 And they are off...
 Shiloh is ready to go too.
 Finding eggs is so much fun. It's hard to find them in this crazy carpet!  He started out slow, even with the encouraging words from his parents mom.
 Then he hit the motherload. 
 Counting our eggs.  The school had smartly taped them together so there was no sneaking candy.
 Shiloh managed to break into one.  Bliss.
 And then everything changed.  The teachers took all the eggs away.  every. last. one. 
Cason was very sad.  He worked hard for those eggs. 

Don't worry.  He recovered quickly and all was forgotten.
