inch by inch, row by row

I'm gonna make my garden grow.....
This has been the best summer for gardening! I have had good luck with everything I planted this year. I can't stop picking green beans, zucchini, and egg plant. My broccoli, tomatoes, cauliflower, cabbage, and peppers (and whatever else I put out there) should be ready soon. Unfortunately it seems we always go on vacation right when the garden is at it's best. This year is no different. We will heading to the lake with our entire family (22 of us) and then off to California to see Jeremy's family and meet our new niece Gracie Ann.

These are globe thistles that I planted last year. they are supposed to get really big purple globe like flowers on them. I am waiting patiently. Last year there was not even a flower, so this year looks much more promising!

New adventure!

Kirsten and I have have been working hard this week to open our own own Etsy shop. Here is the link The name comes from combining our first two letters from both of our names. It grows on you.... say it WeMiKiWi. We are making lots of paper bead jewelry right now but will probably expand into cards and more of our individual artwork later on. Yesterday we even made these adorable little business cards to share with people!
