Community garden

   This year I finally decided to take the plunge and request a plot in our local community garden.  Since we planted it the weather has been mostly cloudy and cool/rainy, so the plant growth hasn't been very exciting.  But just one full day of sun this week and the cilantro is up to my knees, and a whole new crop of baby cherry tomatoes is growing.  We also planted watermelons, thyme, mint, onion, strawberries, and basil.  I am pretty sure we have volunteer versions of carrots, zucchini, lettuce, and maybe a sunflower making homes in our garden plot.  I used the fresh thyme in a chicken-tortellini soup tonight, and the garden felt very worth it for even that one dish :)

     I just went fishing with my youngest for the first time this June.  We were river fishing on the Warm Springs reservation, and it was a lovely day.  Being by the river for hours was so relaxing, and of course my kiddo was deemed "a natural" by the guide, while I managed to snag every rock and twig in the river for the first hour.  I look forward to maybe fishing again someday.  The waders made hanging out on the river's edge much more fun than it would have been in jeans!

So this is the result of my Lego Architecture adventure at Barnes and Noble last week.  It ended up being an underwater depressurization chamber... with style.
