We have onions! I harvested a few yesterday. That’s right. I harvested the crap outta them. And then we ate ’em in our dinner. I pulled a beet out of the ground, but it was only the size of my thumb. We’re weeks behind after all of the rain in the spring, but with another mostly sunny week ahead, I’m betting I’ll be eating beets in no time. Except for that one I
killed harvested yesterday.
It’s been a wonderful week. The gardens have exploded – colour everywhere, bees going nuts, and plenty to keep 2.0 busy. My brother, Adopamop, is here with one of my nieces, Lucy 2.0. They live in France with Adopamop’s partner Isa and their other little one, Apolline. Isa and Apolline have stayed in France, as the country would probably collapse if they all left at the same time. I haven’t seen The Frenchies for about two and a half years. Two and a half years is a long time to wait for that level of awesome. Adopamop is a photography guru, and has been sharing gobs of information with me so I’ll be totally prepared for my new Grown Up Camera in the fall. He even lets me play with his Really Grown Up Camera. Lucy 2.0 is a prize, and one of the most lovely girls I have ever met. I work with hundreds of children every year, so I’m kind of an expert on jerky versus non-jerky kids.
Here’s hoping you had a marvellous weekend filled with family, friends and pop quizzes on aperture and shutter speed.
