Grow, baby, Grow.... and Culinary Explorations

This week, lots of good things popped up in the garden...

baby cucumbers (there are probably a total of seven to 10!!)

baby roma tomatoes (I spotted 4 so far!)...

And our pepper is getting bigger, it's about half of it's full size...

Last weekend, while I had some extra time... I decided to pursue some culinary explorations...refrigerator pickles...strawberry jam...and blueberry jam. All things I have wanted to do for along time. They all came out pretty tasty!

I feel like I am continuing my quest toward domestic goddess-dom... I just wish I could quit my day job and do it all the time!


  1. Mmmm, jam. Pickles. Yummy.

    Love the pics by the way, what camera are you using? I just bought a Nikon but I can't seem to get very many really good shots the way you do, I'm sure it's my lack of photographic talent, but still...

  2. Mrs. Lala, I sent you an email. Let me know if that helps :)

  3. Love the canned goods, yumm!!! And the garden fresh veggies- so awesome! It's exciting to see them growing, isn't it! I have one tomato plant this year, but its making me so happy to check it for progress daily, LOL!! We still have to try making some canned baby food sometime!
