Little Bit of Everything

Standard

I have taken so many pictures of our yard lately, I just wanted to share!!

First off, my lovely flowers!! I know I’ve posted my lilacs (which smelled amazing), but here are some other beautiful ones.

Pretty flowers!!! I love them. I really clipped that rose bush last year and apparently they appreciated it. Also that is our ginormous hosta. We have split that baby a few times but it is relentless.

Here are garden updates!

Lots of leaf lettuce and kale. The chickens love kale! We also have some onion and potato plants that seem to be coming along great. Today at the farmers market they had starts for 1.00 a plant, I got two cucumber, two zucchini and a yellow pepper plant. Last year we didn’t have luck with zucchini but we will give it another shot. Oh and the little sprout is a sunflower I planted. My husband made the compost bin out of old wood. Seems to hold up much better than our old contraption.

Also here is a quick dessert we had with dinner tonight!

Pineapple pops!

So simple! Just melt some chocolate, dip, sprinkle and freeze!
Here are a few tips though. 1. Pat pineapple very dry or chocolate won’t stick. 2. Use a spoon to coat pineapple, dipping the pineapple seemed to mess with the consistency of the chocolate very quickly. 3. I sprinkled a few with sea salt and I hated it, stick to the coconut or almonds!

Hope you are having a great day too!!
