I would love to say that my garden is flourishing… and it is… sort of. But we are just now getting June bearing strawberries and our VERY first tomatoes and green beans. The sunflowers started opening last week. A month late. They usually open around the 4th of July. For Pacific NW gardeners, the weather has been frustrating to say the least. I am trying to enjoy our 78 minutes of summer and we are planning two camping trips for the next few weeks so I am really hoping it warms up again!
Even with the crazy cold weather I have gotten some summer projects started.
This chicken coop was a hand-me-down from a friend and I have always loved it! I am remodeling it to make it something even more beautiful for my bitties to live in. I will show you the finished product soon I hope. Just got the rest of the paint yesterday! (Notice behind the chicken coop the dead grass? At least it has been warm enough for that! Or has it just been dry enough for that? Even our pastor said last week that we should get out in this ‘balmy 70* weather for a while and nobody better complain to God about heat!’ lol!)
In other news, I just discovered Zaycon Foods. Has anyone else used this? The only thing I have ordered so far has been peaches which arrive at the end of August and so I can’t speak to the quality but I can tell you that the price was amazing! $16 per box. Right from a local source.
Family news: Don started the Paleo diet this last week. Not sure how long it will last for my carb loving husband, but we will see. It’s kinda trendy, so I am super skeptical as usual and am sticking with Nourishing Traditions and Marco for me and the kids. Minus the dairy and soy. I have thought and chatted with people about this diet a lot lately. I would love to hear thoughts on it from you guys.
That’s about it from here. I have a huge dentist apt this morning. I am hoping to get the chicken coop fully painted this afternoon, but I may be on my couch with an icepack on my face. :P
Blessings to you all for a beautiful Thursday!
