Canned Bell Peppers (from Farmers Market)

Amie and I just ate our first three peas from the garden: delicious! She also ate seven green beans (from the garden) and four carrots (disks, that is, not the whole thing) (from the Farmers Market). She loves the beans especially. She also promised that when the time comes to break it out of the freezer, she’ll eat the pesto for which she harvested and trimmed the basil.

A grasshopper was hiding out in the basil and luckily jumped out before I put the batch in the food processor. We caught it and let it outside, where it sat on Amie’s finger for a long time, then gave her a fright when it jumped.

Later on a Ladybug came to visit and Amie fed it a blueberry.

I do love those still-pudgy hands…
