Garden Week 4

I wrestled cages onto my tomato plants this week. I'm assuming it would be much easier if either the plants were smaller or I had some assistance. Such is my luck as a lonesome beginner gardner.
Another garden event this week...there was a big thunderstorm that produced hail. I came to my plants rescue and pulled them under cover (after getting advice from Mom). But I wasn't quick enough, some plants had perfect little holes in their leaves from the hail.
The beginnings of my first banana pepper.
More banana peppers to come.
First inclining of a jalapeno. Can't wait to make salsa!

Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day!
We spent the evening at Gale's house as she is recovering from ankle surgery.
Maya is reading a book to Gale (aka Gigi) and Sol.
My Mother's Day gift was a homemade dinner.
Red Leaf Lettuce with Shallot Dijon Vinaigrette and Balsamic Red Onions
In my opinion, the onions were the best part of the whole meal!
Penne with Five Cheeses hot out of the oven.
(aka Macaroni and Cheese with Ketchup for Maya)
Stewed Pineapple, Raspberries, and Blueberries and Vanilla Ice Cream
The family minus me.
There I am!

Bun Run

My fellow FNP school buddies and I ran our buns off in the Bun Run 5K. I brought up the rear, but finished!
