This week...

...we took lots of pictures!

"CHOO-CHOO!!!"  The best part about our new coffee table?  Built-in tunnels!!!

Working very diligently.

So, this is the ancient woodpile that was rotting away behind the shed.  Home to brown recluse spiders and probably some snakes.  Here we are building a hügel out of it!  Hurray for making our yard safer, a better view for our back neighbors, AND awesome soil all in one!  So logs go in first.

Then smaller pieces of wood on top.

Then leaf mulch.  In the wheelbarrow: The beautiful dark soil from under the woodpile that we put on top. This will be our pumpkin and winter squash bed.
Broccoli plants getting big!

Peas blossoming.  I saw six pods today!

And tomato bed.  Those are cucumbers down the middle; they'll be needing trellising soon.
Roses for the feast of Corpus Christi from the farmer's market!  The peach ones are appropriately called, "Heaven on Earth."  They have a delightful light fruity fragrance, very like a peach!

I believe this is what they call, "Parallel play."
