Another fantastic trip to the Market today.
Rhubarb with which to make Rhubarb Upside Down Cake.
Strawberries to eat right out of the basket.
And some Caramel Creme Coffee to feed my addiction.

I think I’ll pack up these babies, along with some watermelon,
and we’ll hit the pool. 
I am so glad summer is (unofficially) here.

Strawberries + Cantaloupe.

A very good afternoon snack.
It makes me so excited for when the Grower’s Market opens weekly in May!

Spring has sprung.
It is a balmy 59 degrees today!
And I am celebrating with a head cold. How unfortunately ironic.

I am so loving this warmer weather. Yes, me, the snow-lover. I cannot wait to have my doors and windows open and sunlight pouring through them from early morning until early evening! I have grand plans for our deck this spring/summer, and I am anxious to get a move on it.

Also included in spring/summer plans: a garden.
Traci, Michelle and I do not have green thumbs, and yet we are going to attempt a vegetable garden.
Whose idea was that? Traci’s 😉
So we are consulting our local garden guru: Emily Mox. She is going to school for all things plant related! (I realize there is a scientific name for that….probably horticulture…or herbology…wait spell-check says herbology is not a word…does that only exist in Harry Potter?) Well, either way, she is sharing her wisdom with us and we are eternally grateful. I, for one, do not want to plant what I thought were peppers and be absolutely floored when cucumbers sprout.
You think I’m joking?
I once killed a cactus.
In the words of Demetri Martin, that means I am less nurturing than a desert.

So, I’m trying to move on from that horrendous experience. And when I asked Emily if I could grow strawberries…she wisely (and very kindly) suggested that perhaps I should wait on those. So, we are going to try to keep vegetables alive and see how that goes.

But in the meantime, I saw this Strawberry Kit at Target:

Buzzy Porcelain Strawberry Grow Kit

This intrigues me. Because if I can’t grow strawberries, maybe this pot can!
I am going to mention it as a gift idea for Mother’s Day. Which, I have been wondering, do I count as a participant for Mother’s Day this year? I hope so. Because I have been dropping gift ideas to Michael rather frequently lately 😉
