With all the frequent rain showers we experienced lately in our area, my garden is in its glory, and thriving.
If you love gardening, as I do, you will agree that no matter how much, and how often, you water your garden, it does not measure up to one good rain fall, and the plants just seem to grow in front of your eyes soon afterward.
This season’s harvest already began in my garden, and, with great pleasure, I was able to pick some baby red beets, dill, chives, summer squash, zucchini, green beans, and basil.
I have shared my April Blooms, and my May Blooms, now it’s time for June Blooms.
This is a transition period in my garden , since all the earlier blooms are passed their blooming time, and there are fewer perennial blooming plants as we get deeper into the summer season. I have been busy planting summer annuals, to add a splash of color to the remaining foliage, but they will not be ready for pictures until later in the season.
I always loved my mom’s homemade pasta, especially in her homemade chicken or tomato soup. I also started to make my own pasta for my family, and they love it. It is simple to make, and out of 2 cups of flour, you get enough pasta for a family of four. Talking about saving money and having great tasting food!
Of course I was doing it the hard way, until one day my daughter presented me with an Imperia Pasta Maker Machine, and making pasta has not been the same since.
A friend of mine sent it to me via email, so I thought it would be real fun, to post it for all the Fathers, and Fathers-to-be. I hope you enjoyed it and it put a smile on your face on your special day!!
