Right behind him are a handful of other pretty white pea flowers waiting to be magically transformed into peas!
I'm super super excited about this snapshot. My first tomato of the season!! It's from my cherry tomato plant. I'm so excited because both of the cherry tomatoes are flowering now. It makes my mouth water to think about delicious cherry tomatoes. Most of these never make it inside the house. I have them for snack fresh from the vine. Mmmm.....I can't wait!
I also have flowers forming on both the Brandywine and Cherokee Purple heirloom tomato plants. I think we're finally clearing 50 degrees at night (FINALLY!!) so I took down the walls of water. These flowers will soon need the bees to find them. I just thought I'd make it a little easier for the bees.
I'm so excited to finally see fruits of my labor. It's hard not to be too disheartened when these babies show up! Most of my cucumbers are dead so I re-seeded them outside this weekend. I hope they pop up in time for the harvest!

Yipee! It's that time of the year when tons of Copper River Salmon are shipped all over the Pacific NW. It's what chefs and home cooks live for. It also makes them giggle with delight. What is Copper River Salmon, and what make it so special? It's only the most delightful and tasty salmon you'll ever have! Well that's just my humble opinion anyway.

I saw this on the news the other day and was so appauled! These are 9 meals served in chain restaurants across the country that made the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) list of the most unhealthy restaurant food. It's amazing how some of these meals contain your total recommended caloric intake for the day. Take a peek at some of these and be blown away!

One piece of good news in the garden. My surprise plant, the yellow iris bloomed. So pretty!
