A Day at the Farm

We thought we'd try something new recently and head out to the valley to an event that I read about in one of my email newsletters.

It was only recently that I realized that these turn into those flowers right there. No, really. I never once connected the two.

I planted some lettuce seeds. (You know they died, right? I'm about as bad at growing things as BD is of taking pictures of me that don't cut my head off.)

Always riding in style. I'm so glad that the backpack is BD's domain and not mine. Playette is getting heavy these days.

Cookie monster.

It smelled so good here. I wish I cooked well/often enough to take advantage of this.

And then there was a salad eating contest. Finally, my talent had a purpose! I had to sign up.

Giving the competition the side-eye.

Almost done...


BD said I was the "first loser."

I didn't care though because my personal thought was that 2nd place had better prizes anyway. Plus, I got free lunch! (Head tilted to prevent decapitation.)

omg, I MISS you guys! lol

You are so random. I love it.

A salad eating contest? Seriously?

You crack me up!! LOL.

And I totally had to laugh at the salad eating contest!! I never understood any kind of eating contest, but I guess if there's gonna be one, as salad is the best choice.

Oh, and the herb garden, I would be in total heaven! I love herbs. I grow a few of my own, but I don't have a big enough area. Basil and parsley are really easy to grow, and you can use them in almost anything. Basil (well any herb really) you can grow a bunch, chop it up in a food processor and freeze it in ice cube trays for the winter to add into soups, or sauces. Or make pesto with it and freeze it. Easy easy!
