Here is our garden so far this year

I will post the pictures starting from behind the garage to the back right corner of the yard. We only put acorn squash, watermelon, and cantaloupe in the vegetable garden. The rest of the veggies are either in pots or hidden in the flower garden.
Here is the clothes line we put in this year.

This is where the perennial garden starts and it goes the rest of the length of the yard. We added a space for strawberries and chnaged the stepping stones around. I really like it better this way. Next year the rose bushes are coming out, they are just too much work.
Our Strawberry Patch This is the new addition , really we just connected the two existing gardens and moved stones around. Here are some hidden veggies that are doing very well, I think they like it here. There are pickling cucumbers, bambino eggplants(which I will post a picture of) and japanese eggplants. We also have cucumbers, green beans and peas. Oh and let's not forget Maddie's carrots, which she plants every year and they do great every year.And the little bambino eggplant, there are wuite a few. Can't wait to try them))

Thankful Thursday

SOOOO thankful to have a digital camera again.....

Just some pictures

Since my camera has been down I haven't been able to post any pictures, or take any for that matter. Over the weekend my mom gave me back my old digital camera and I'm back in business. So enjoy all of the cuteness.

Garden Pictures

Well here are a few pictures from our flower garden this year.

This is Bella and her Best Friend Sarah.

And here is Maddie and Bella taking a moment in the it!!

Dance is over ahhhh.....

After taking a 6 week summer dance class last year Maddie wanted to keep with it. So after finding out that her teacher from that class just became pregnant, I wondered how she would be able to teach the whole year. We ended up going to a studio that is new to Owosso, BIG mistake. I will not go into all of the horid details of this ladies business sense but I will leave you all a beautiful picture of my little "Dance Star".

By the way she did a wonderful job at the recital and for all of you wondering if I will let her continue dance, let's just say that if she wants to I will take her back to the place where she went that one summer. I saw some of the pictures from their recital and the costumes were not only 100% cuter(if that's even a word) but they were also $20 cheaper!!

Enjoy the pictures

Awesome Salsa

Here is a great salsa recipe. It can be used with tortillas chips or with grilled chicken pieces on top of grilled corn tortillas with sour cream and cheese. However you want to eat it, it will be great!!

1-3 mangos, ripe but firm. Chopped into small pieces
1-2 jalapeno peppers. seeded and then finely chopped
Fresh chopped cilantro. As much or as little as you like. I use quite a bit.
1-2 large tomatoes, use the type you like. chopped small
The juice of 1-2 limes
1 med onion finely chopped

Mix all of the chopped ingredients together and let sit in the refrigerator to chill for about 1/2 an hour or so. This is so lite and refreshing you will love it. You can add more or use less, depending on how much salsa you want to make. It really is an eyeball it and taste as you go kind of recipe.
