Ramblings

There is always something beautiful in nature. I love being able to see the sun rise, the moon, storms in the distance and this year I've seen so many rainbows. Sights like these make you slow down and let you reconnect with the beauty that surrounds you.

I'm really enjoying the garden this year. The tomatoes are slow in setting on, but when we get some they are so delicious. The cucumbers are doing well, and we are enjoying them with vinegar,sugar and some oil. The basil is really doing great, I put in 7 plants and I have made a lot of pesto. The other night I combined basil, parsley, garlic, Dijon mustard, lemon juice and oil as a marinade for shrimp and grilled them. The beets are almost gone, have pulled all the onions, the peas were wonderful, that season doesn't last long enough, and we are just waiting on the okra. See the dill right behind Wylie, that was where the rescued caterpillar was relocated. I was so disappointed that I missed seeing it come out of its cocoon.

This is one of the windy day dust storms. Thankfully we've been getting some moisture and now the soybeans are up and he field is no longer blowing.
