Catching Up

Well, it's been a few weeks, and I've thought of a number of things to mention, but nothing worthy of an entire post, so this'll be a catch-all post, rounding up the random goings-on of the last few weeks, in no particular order...

What Have I Done?!

Oh boy, y'all are going to think I'm crazy, but... A friend had some extra barn cats, and Caleb said that after losing 4 of our 6 cats in a matter of months we could actually use a few more, and the boys would probably enjoy some kittens.  I said, "if we're getting kittens for the boys to enjoy, shouldn't we get the mama with newborns, that would be way more fun!"  What was I thinking?!  So, we did.

Habaneros Everywhere!

in

The theme this week is habaneros - we planted 2 habanero plants in the hoophouse this spring, and I forgot just how prolific they are.  We are harvesting at least 15 peppers every two days, and that really piles up!  I canned over 3 dozen jars early this week, and another 1.5 dozen this week.  We'll easily have a year or two's-worth of hot sauce :)  I don't actually like really hot food, but habaneros are just so beautiful, I love growing them simply for the color!  I only do it every few years...

Welcome, Baby Tanya!

Our newest arrival is here, a big welcome to little Tanya (continuing our classic country music artists, obviously named for Tanya Tucker). 

Birthday Boys!

This post is a bit late - but it's the thought that counts, better late than never, and any number of other platitudes :).
