First and foremost, my prayers and heart goes out to the tragedy in Oklahoma. Those poor babies. I have not been able to watch the news. I can't. I found out, after becoming a mom, that my heart can't take stuff like this anymore. I deal with enough sadness at work. I steer clear of it outside of work. I just can't imagine.
This child loves her chickens. She runs around and catches them and just loves on them. She doesn't care if its a big ol' rooster or what. They are very gentle, I guess because we have raised them since they were 2 days old.
Harper and I's garden is looking sooooo good! I have a broccoli that will be ready anyday! I have been watching it and waiting to pick it. Maybe tomorrow I will get to eat my first home-grown veggie! The squash, zuccini, cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers and cabbage are growing so much. The onions are huge. My okra, eggplant, watermelon and cantaloupe are not looking so hot. They are slow growing and the cold hit them pretty hard. I better get me some okra. I could write a whole post on the many ways that I love okra. I would titled it "How I love thee Okra" I will never forget one of my best friends in school, Shirley, moved here from the north and had never heard of OKRA! WHAT!?!?! Poor yankees!
