Here is what the area looked like the day I went on a ripping out spree. Our son was giddy as I cleared away all the weeds and removed rocks and opened up a world of insects to him. My heart goes out to the families of some pill bugs, millipedes, beetles of various kinds and ants.
That is our son on the bottom right, probably playing with a worm. He did put them back in the dirt at my request.
Sticking with the bug theme. Here is a nice tutorial to make beetle pancakes on The Kid Should See This.
We are slightly obsessed with Wolf Alice and the song "Moaning Lisa Smile".
Made a delicious Basil, Shrimp and Zucchini pasta the other night. I used pennette pasta instead of what they recommended.
Different from the normal all white and glass green houses we see, check out "How to Build a Lean-to Greenhouse" in Backwoods Home magazine.
Fat Free Vegan Kitchen has a "Ridiculously Easy Jalapeno Pickles" recipe.
Have a terrific weekend!
