I want to first apologize for my lack of posts this past week... It was a hectic and bothersome week, and though I thought of you often, I wasn't able to make time to write anything. Or really even cook anything good. We had brussels sprouts and french fries for dinner Monday night. Seriously. But anyway...
The garden is coming along so nicely! Lookit!
They live! Those are some radishes and lettuce of some kind (I've been having a hard time keeping track of what is in what pot for now...that will all change once they are actually recognizable plants. Oh, and no I can't read my handwriting on those sticks.).
And then there's this:
A little fairy ring of sprouty happiness! Almost big enough to start thinning. They grow up so fast...
strain your eyes, they're there
Even the herbs in our little kitchen window pot are starting up:
little basil (or parsley) and chives
So yes, the garden is doing very well. I'm so pleased! They only just started sprouting on Monday really...and they've grown so much since then. I didn't even show you all of what we've got goin' on. Sadly, Michael's out of town and our babies will practically be toddlers once he gets back on Saturday. Sorry, it's just way too easy to personify these plants. We've got a lot invested in them and I care about them so much!
Oh... hey there, bloggy buddies. Did you notice something awesome about those photos? I did promise awesomeness in this post as well. Hmmm... Did I fail to mention last week that I ordered a digital SLR? Well, I totally did! And it came today! And it's raining so I can't go outside and take photos. So here's some other examples of what my fabulous new (well...gently used and 4 years old) camera can do.
It can take pictures of the inside of my fridge.
It can take pictures of the bed.
It can take pictures of my cat.
tempeh for din
It can take pictures of garlic.
Which brings me back to where we started. Did you notice? How awesome? Did you see all that selective focusing? The shallow depth of field? Did ya?
Color me excited because this girl has finally got a decent digital camera (Nikon D70 for those who are interested) and can show off the photo skillzzzzzz. Yeah!
Now. Off to make dinner and take an awesome picture of it. Stay tuned.
