Squash Babies

Today was the last day of sun before two weeks of rain here in Vancouver. Wanting to soak in the last of the nice weather, I finally got up the nerve to let go of my butternut seedlings and they made their big move out into the real world from my window sill. If I have kids when I grow up I think I'm going to be one of those mom's who has a really hard time on their first day of school.

The Cuuutest Garden Tags Evor

The other day I got together with my elementary and kindergarten friends, Ben and Jill, to make tags for the veggie row in my families garden. Each of us put our own particular skills to use; Jill's colouring, Ben's cutting and my hopefully charming penmanship and doodling.

After making the cards I used packing tape to 'laminate' the back and front to ensure they withstand showers from the hose and then taped on some Popsicle sticks. How I love afternoon craft dates!

Here are some of my favorites;
