Hey guys! Just took a quick walk through my garden to see if anything was ready for picking and I think I found some blue ribbon material! Feast your eyes upon my enormous zucchini! It’s currently a little over 2 feet long and heavy! I’ve never seen one this big and I’m on the lookout for a competition to enter!
I also have some tomatoes, green beans, corn, bittermelon, cilantro and chives ready to be picked!
Here are a couple roses that went a little crazy after months and months of no rain. We finally had 3 days of showers!
I hope your gardens are doing well! Happy growing! 🌱🌹🌿🌺
SO… I am putting my 3 year old daughter up for sale…no seriously.. my little ‘angel’ picked all of the young peaches off of my peach tree except one and then stood there smiling at me! She thought it was hilarious! I guess the culling lesson went a bit over her head, I mean she is 3 after all 😂… I’m still furious 😲😒😒 but she’s lucky that she’s cute, maybe I’ll consider keeping her.
The criminal escapes!
So anywayyyy in other gardening news, I have an apple on my tree! Only one apple you say? Well somehow I felt my little ‘angel’ also had something to do with this! Grrrrr!! 😒😒
The blueberries are ripening. She helped herself to the ripe berries yesterday. Thanks kid, such a great sharer!
The hubs and my 4 year old son tilled the soil in my raised bed and added supplements and eggshells. I am so grateful for that because I still feel pretty blehhh. They did a great job with my micromanaging of course hehehehe!
They found a rogue tomato plant that must have sprouted from last years seeds, so they moved it to a safe place in the corner and it even has a cute little tomato on it already!
I’ve moved my seedlings outside to get used to the weather. At this time last year it was still freezing and as I write this its 90F!!😰
Once again I am trying my hand at herbs. I think they dislike me and things go awry and they always end up dead. Am I an herb murderer?!? *gasp* I just don’t understand it! I can keep difficult orchid species alive and prospering but I can’t keep basil alive!? BASIL!!! Come on Natasha! Get yourself together for heaven’s sakes!
I hope that the weather is lovely where you are and that you’ll be able to get out and garden soon! What are you planting this year?
Happy Gardening! 🙂 🍄🍄🍄
I spent most of the weekend in bed, dying from a cold and sinus infection *I know I’m so dramatic*, but I honestly thought that I had seen the light! Or maybe I had too much Dayquil. 😂
The hubs took care of the kids while I got some rest, which means that they had a bath outdoors in the sprinklers, ate pizza and corn dogs and ice cream and no vegetables, oh they just had the best weekend of their lives! Ha! The big bad mommy was away so the mice surely played!
I started feeling a little better on Saturday night, so I helped the Easter bunny fill some eggs and make baskets for the egg hunt. We hid the eggs including two golden eggs $$ 🐣 and then went to bed.
The munchkins were up at 7am and eager to see if the Easter bunny came, so I grabbed my camera and took the best pics I could with both eyes still closed 😂😷
After they found their baskets and eggs we had a huge waffle breakfast and then I started prepping for an afternoon BBQ *which I ruined because I couldn’t taste the salt in the food and then gave everyone hypertension LOL*, but they were good sports and ate the burgers that were drowning in salt 😂
Then we did and outdoor egg hunt and grandpa couldn’t keep his big mouth shut and kept telling the kids where the eggs were! So next year we’ll give him a basket since he wanted to play so bad 😂😂 There was also some wrestling, a bubble gun show down, hula hooping and candy tasting *I swear the kids wanted us to share their candy*. All in all everyone had a great time and we’re hoping to continue this tradition for years to come, but without the salty food! 😉
I hope you had an amazing Easter as well! 💜
Just another day playing outside with the kids, finding wish flowers *weed spreaders*, making lizard catchers, picking lemons and making lemonade. Life was good until that humongous grasshopper tried to hitch a ride in my hair! HA!
She found some huge wish flowers, and her wish was for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich 😂😂
Lizard catcher complete
Can you spot the huge hopper!? I think it shaved 9 years off of my life 😂😂😂😂
What beautiful weather today in SoCal! Just warm enough, blue skies and flowers blooming everywhere! I took Nicky *my camera* out and about in my back and front yard to see what’s going on.
My roses are doing great this year! Especially the multicolored bush. Take a look! 😁
Most of you know that I’m from the beautiful islands of Trinidad and Tobago and I’m no stranger to beautiful sunsets and beaches. But, I have to admit that Californian sunsets are nothing short of amazing!
Last weekend the hubs and I had a day out without the kids, we headed out along the 126 towards the beach. I love driving along the coast, it’s so beautiful and the air smells so clean.
We stopped at Andria’s seafood, ordered our favorite clam chowder bread bowl and fish and chips, stuffed or faces till we couldn’t move and then slowly walked across the street to watch the sun set at the beach.
I was told to make sure I got his beer in the picture *men!*
Here are my pics, I’m still in awe at how beautiful it was!
I hope you enjoy the pics and maybe catch your own Cali sunset brah!! 🏂🏄
