Father's Day Celebration

I hope that everyone enjoyed the weekend. We celebrated Father's Day with handmade presents from the kids and a handmade meal from me. The kids spent the day watching movies with their dad, and then "helped" him tinker on the tractor he is rebuilding.

In the afternoon, my daughter came in joyously celebrating our first bell pepper from the garden (aren't they supposed to be bigger than this?) and then found another, which she left on the plant. Our little jardín is a true labor of love - the key word here being "labor." We have a tendency to forget to water on a regular basis and sometimes the weeds battle for victory. But despite our neglect, our little garden struggles along and faithfully produces a little of this and a little more of that each year. We are about to be up to our eyeballs in tomates y papas. And so, we celebrate.

How about you? Are you planting a garden this year?

Wishing you all a bountiful summer.

Con mucho cariño...


  1. Our peppers are about the same size. We're doing much better about remembering to water this year, but the weeds are liking that, too! The exciting thing about our garden is one cantaloupe and one super tiny watermelon that are growing!
    Also, we received the Pablo Neruda book and enjoyed reading it...thank you so much! Hardback, too....impressive!

  2. Yes! We have cantaloupe coming up, too! Did you plant them in little mounds? Oh, how I wish we'd thought of some SANDÍA!! Yum-o.

    So glad you like it. I think Pablo Neurda was impressive...
