I'm going to be picking up whatever didn't sell at Gianna's on Saturday.

Garden Totals for 2017

I harvested some kohlrabi yesterday, and even though there are three or four neglected kohlrabi plants out there, I'm calling it a season.

Total pounds from our garden = 260!

Wow.  I'm kinda stunned, actually.  My goal was to top 150 pounds.

The two most generous garden givers (both of which we are still eating from the freezer) were zucchini (64 pounds from two plants) and tomatoes (105 pounds from six plants).

As usual, I did a lousy job of keeping track of expenses.  We purchased seeds, and I think Belovedest bought potting soil for starting seeds, which drives me nuts as, hello, it's dirt.  I have "$45.32" written on the Garden 2017 planning page, but I don't know what all that entails.

Suffice to say that we ate a lot healthier than than we would have otherwise, we had fun, we got outside, and it was totally worth it, for us anyway.

Q. and A. with J.

Q. J., is your blog dead?  You hardly ever post.

A. No, not dead, just on cryogenically frozen.

Q. What's up?

A. I'm working full-time.  The house will be paid off in 2018, and I'm moving closer to my goal of working for myself full-time.  At that point, I'll blog early and often!

Q. Do you still get $ if I buy something through your Amazon link?

A. Yes, the portal is still active, thanks for asking!  Purchases are much appreciated!

From our last trip to Omaha

We hung out with our beloved Aunt Amy and Uncle Steve at Hot Shops.

It even inspired some artsy-ness of our own:

Game Night with Arwen..

Improv 101 Finale...

Glad my husband can fix stuff....

The strawberry harvest is over, but I loved every last bit!  And I frozen enough to add to lots of more bowls of oatmeal.  (Frozen strawberries are too mushy to eat straight but they are fine in something: smoothies, oatmeal, yogurt, etc.)
And, no, I didn't photoshop the heart.  I just noticed it when I cut the berry in half.  :)
