The Garden

Is there anything nicer than freshly turned soil in the spring?  The smell, the look, the feel.

Peach Buds

Photo taken April 6th.  The buds are getting bigger.  The willows are brighter yellow.  Last year on April 3rd the spring peepers were peeping.  Not a peep from them yet this year.

Not a peep from them yet this year.  For Easter Dinner we had Penny Tree  Farm Fresh Pork Roast smothered in Penny Tree Farm Peach Preserves.  I have a few more jars left of the preserves.  

Monday Measures

McLure's Department store regular one foot ruler.  This ruler came to me via my in-law's.  Perhaps from Nashville - would be interesting to know how it came North.

The Last Squash

Cutting this squash open was no small feat.  And yes I did tell myself to avoid bumps-bruises-and-mishaps!  And no! - I didn't sustain any injury!  Gosh - what a question!

This baby size blue hubbard is in amazingly good condition.  This is the longest I have had squash and pumpkins last.  Just about every week I have baked one or two and used them in soups, scones, pies, and side dishes.  We will miss them!
