Recently I bought Evin her first Vintage Apron in Pink. She absolutely loves it. And wants to put it on and help me cook everyday. Here on a blog I read there is a giveaway for a mother and child vintage apron set. I hope I win!

Picking and Growing

I am seeing the beginning of Summer here at our home. The garden is starting to give the early vegetables, like Japanese Eggplant, Eight Ball and Italian Stripe Zucchini, Purple Queen Bush Beans, Sweet Yellow Banana Peppers, blueberries and one tomato so far. We need HEAT to get the loads of tomatoes to ripen. We have one tomato "tree" that is over 6 feet tall!!! The patio is tropical and inviting. We have eaten dinner out there several times already. The water fountain is always making it's lovely sounds to soothe and calm the garden.
