Garden Update

I am pretty excited that this weekend I have HUGE plans to harvest some collard greens. They are getting nearly a foot long, the outer leaves. I cannot wait!

Here's the whole garden. It's 10'x4' divided into three beds. There are pumpkins vining outside the garden by the house, as well. I Am pretty proud of this as a first attempt!

Herb area, and tomato plants, collards.

Squash, Cherry tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes, hybrid tomatoes, bush beans, green peppers, cherry peppers.

Corn, more bush beans, Lima beans, and carrots, as well as the LONE tomato plant that took from seed and I have no clue what breed it is.

Meal Plan for the Week of 05/16

This week I am working in the office, not from home. Managing it all is sure to make me a little more stressed... but heck, if you know me you know stress is my middle name, even when it doesn't have to be.

We'll be dining on leftovers from Saturday and Sunday (delicious chicken enchiladas in my easy enchilada sauce and BBQ chicken, green beans, cornbread and potatoes as cooked by the husband).
Crock pot roast pork
Rice and beans
Yeast Rolls

Sloppy Joes
Scalloped Potatoes
Carrot Sticks

Homemade Pizzas

Chicken & Broccoli casserole

We'll be at a spring somewhere enjoying the day, and we'll eat out as a family.

Fish on the grill. Some variation of fish on the grill. We'll see what looks good at the market and go from there. I am guessing mango, pineapple and other tasty fresh fruits will be involved, possibly some rice. Loving my husbands new love of his grill. He's quite the cook these days.
