Monday Garden Club

Oh boy!  What another full, yet FUN weekend!  The girls and I helped with a rummage sale all day Friday where the girls set up a lemonade stand.  All was going great until an older Grandpa type found 35 cents at the bottom of his plastic lemonade cup AFTER he finished his 50 cent glass of lemonade.  It was determined that Mae accidentally gave him the change cup instead of a clean cup.  Oops!

Saturday was another busy day, meeting some friends out for Breakfast On The Farm then later was the Wisconsin wedding celebration for the cousin who was married last month in South Carolina.  I once again photographed the whole event but since I've been so busy, none of the photos are up on my photo blog yet, but soon!

And yesterday, we had some friends over for lunch who were visiting all the way from Virginia.  In fact, our guests were the Out In Them Sticks family, Monday Garden Club regulars, including the newest member with the yummiest little toes.

And of course more photos to process, but instead of editing, I did find a little time last night to get out int he garden and pull weeds.  The Gardener roto-tilled between all of the rows, then the girls and I pulled weeds around the plants in the vine section of the garden.

Some of the plants were difficult to find inside the carpet of weeds, but once identified, we were able to clear the weeds away to expose the plants.  All the rain we had last week has turned the garden into a growing machine.

This week we have been picking strawberries and radishes from our garden, and the arugula is ready as well.  The Pick Your Own strawberry farm down the road from our house is now open too.  This morning, Binny and I went and picked 2 ice cream pails full of strawberries which will become jam later today if I get time.

Anybody else gardening this week? If so, grab the Monday Garden Club button on my sidebar, paste it to your blog entry and link up below with Mr. Linky.

Thank you so much for everything!! It was so great to see you and the fam. Ladybug loved meeting Mae Mae and Binny and has been talking about them constantly. In her words, "I miss them so much! I want to play baseball and kickball and make a garden with them and play in the playhouse and swing and play with the fishies with them and..." you get the picture. lol.

You are so kind to have offered to have us over. You are an amazing cook. The strawberry salad was definitely my favorite! I hope someday to repay you! :)

I can't wait to see pics... as soon as we get back home I'll get a check on its way. Sorry for not thinking ahead. It's really been a whirlwind and I left my brain somewhere in Indiana!
