These past few days have been so full of just hanging out and relaxing- everything a weekend should be! Saturday this Momma had a few un-interrupted hours in the studio doing what I love best- working on some new items for the Etsy shop- lots of Summer goodies! The Mr. took the Littles to the park for a run and a swing on the monkey bars so they were in heaven.
Sunday found us at the Kitsilano Farmer's Market- of course- stocking up on delicious seasonal yummies- I bought a bunch of rhubarb to freeze for a rainy day. Also the first of the seasons strawberries were out- I guess we had best plan a trip to the berry farm soon!
The garden is starting to really come together- we got our tomatoes and peppers all planted up yesterday- we are rapidly running out of space but I think we have room for one more pepper plant! I'm not going to lie - I may be a tad addicted! I have no illusions our deck garden could sustain us - I look at this more of a science experiment- figuring out how to grow things for when we do have a yard with a bigger garden. Until the day comes that we have a yard we can grow tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, garlic, kale, radishes, peas and loads of herbs- oh and the strawberries (more on that next week!)- the Littles know how plants grown and where our food comes from and that is all that matters.
In other news I have been encouraged to join Instagram- my friend who blogs at Oolawoola is participating in a handmade challenge for the month of June. So of course I jumped on the band wagon as I do love a good challenge! All pictures here on this post are from my Instagram weekend- I love it!
