Organic foods are being grown at my house these days - well, just sweat peas, beans, spinach and carrots! (Don't tell M & D, but I've caught Gertie and Bongo "fertilizing" the bean stalks.) Picking the peas out of the pods took lots of concentration; the taste of the fresh peas was well worth all the hard work though. My favorite part of gardening is helping M pull the "weeds"...um....well, I don't really know what I'm pulling, so anything with leaves gets yanked out of the ground by me, 'lil farmer Julian. Oh, yeah, and I could stand holding the garden hose all morning if I was allowed too - sometimes I even offer M a drink of cold, running water from the hose.
Today was a great day for chalk art too. M says it's going to storm again tomorrow, so she wanted to capture me and some of my art on film before it's washed away. I'm actually looking forward to the raining day tomorrow, because it's the start of the summer session of Book Babies at the library. I wonder how many of my friends will be sporting farmer tans like I am (especially around the back of my neck above my onsies where M forgets to spread the sunscreen lotion).
