I got my garden in this weekend. It's so cute!


It's got 6 different kind of tomatoes ranging from your standard to cherry to heirlooms to romas. A nice wide variety. I have zucchini, yellow squash, cucumbers, cantaloupe, tomatillos, 2 kinds of basil, mint, parsley, arulula, butter lettuce, and corn (I warned B that we probably don't have enough for it to work, but he wanted to try it--maybe it will somehow cross pollinate with the corn on the other side of the fence in my neighbor's yard). I also have chives and oregano that come up every year.

I hope it does well! I don't have the greenest of thumbs. This weekend I need to work on the flower garden in front.

I also finally got around to calling a phone number on a sign at a nearby farm for fresh eggs. We went to get them and I wish I'd done it sooner. The boys loved the farm--especialy the chicks. The farmer is ancient and very sweet. He only had 11 eggs at the time, but they are beauties.

They're a wide range of sizes and colors. Look at that gorgeous orangey one. They taste great too. At 2 bucks a dozen and only 5 min. from my house, it just doesn't get much better than that.

I'm thinking about heading to Boulder on Saturday to hit their Farmer's Market, so perhaps I'll have more locavoring fodder to post then. Yum!
