A busy week

It has been a whole month since my last post...I have no idea where to start.  So I'll just start with what has been going on this past week.Life is crazy hectic right now.  Keeping up with the garden is a lot more work than I expected!  We still have the puppies and it looks like they're here to stay.  Adam is sure of it....I am still having trouble accepting that fact, even though I love them...6 is just a LOT!!  While I was preparing for and attending girl's camp, I got behind in house chores as well as the garden.  I have slowly but surely been catching up.  

The crape myrtle started blooming.

Dog milk bones made for a friend's dogs.  (Mine got the left overs.)

Sourdough bread made for friends.

My first big haul last Saturday.

This is raw "spaghetti".  The noodles are made from zuchinni and the sauce is tomatoes, a date, herbs, oil and garlic. It was SOOO good.

This was yesterday, I think.  

My first little eggplant!  Another even smaller one in the background.

Heirloom tomatoes are starting to come in.  For some reason, everyone's tomatoes are cracking this year.  

Our first watermelon.  Not quite ripe, unfortunately...but good nonetheless.

Best friends.  

I made a batch of dish washing detergent and a batch of laundry detergent.  I started using Dr. Brommer's lavender soap in my laundry detergent and I love the smell.

The weather outside has been very hot, perfect for rising bread dough.  The best rise I've had in a long while.  

So, that's some of what's been going on here this week.  I hope your week went well.
