Do you plant a garden?

The last few years Ohiophotogrl and I have planted a garden and this year is no different. We have tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, zucchini, herbs and soon to have carrots, beets and radishes. I love taking photos of the garden as it grows.

Here is a sneak peek at the growth so far:

We will keep ya posted on how the garden grows! Do you have a garden? What are you growing?

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

Gardening

Spent yesterday morning and early afternoon looking for plants for the garden.

There are a lot to choose from. Let’s just say we picked up flowers for the front flower pots and some tomatoes for the pots on the porch. Not to mention some herbs. Last week we got some cucumbers and a few other things. I’ll have to make a full list.

Now I just need this weather to Cooperate! Are you planting a garden? What are you gonna put in yours?

Wonder what were gonna do next?

Graduation time!

Ohiophotogrl has had two a niece and a nephew graduate this year. Tonight we went and saw the nieces portfolio review. Here is a photo of the crowd and the set up.

The review was at the Dayton Art Institute in Dayton Ohio. The niece is graduating with lots of honors….

After we walked around we and saw some amazing graphic artists work we had a snack.

MMMMMM I might have had one of these fruit cups. But after that we went back and told Rachael goodbye and headed out to have a nose dinner….SUSHI

As you can tell I ate it all gone :0)

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

Dayton Dragons

Today Ohiophotogrl let me tag along for a Dayton Dragons Game.

We walked around the whole stadium. This was our first game of the year. Normally when we go to a ball game it’s really warm. Not tonight. When we left it was 54 degrees. ThTs cold for this tator!

We lost 9-4 but we did get to eat some popcorn and peanuts! We didn’t do Cracker Jacks this time. But we will always cheer for our Dragons!

Better luck next time fellows!

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

November 1st

Last night was trick or treat here I the 937. I couldn’t decide what to wear so I did costume changes.

Ok maybe more than a few but a Tator has to have options ya know! Hope you all had a safe and fun night last night. We had about 25 trick or treaters. Rain dampened the night but Ohiophotogrl has fun running around to all the neighbors to see what kind of candy they had….I’m not sure she will ever grow up. I think I’m ok with that!

Here is to a great November!

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

Applesauce

With fall being just a day or two away Ohiophotogrl thought we should make some homemade applesauce. It’s apple season hear in the 937 so we went out to Peifers Orchard for some local grown apples. This batch will be made with just apples, water and lemon juice to start. Then we will add some spices like cinnamon:0)

First thing we To is peel and core the apples

With the Apple peeler in the top photo it cores the Apple at the same time it’s peeling so it makes fast work out of getting the apples ready. Then we throw them in the pan with the water and lemon juice….

But a lid on it and wait for it to get all tender so we can squish it all up for our applesauce.

Then we will can it and it will look like this

Wonder what we’re gonna do next!

12 miles from home

Ohiophotogrl and I went on a little excursion this morning. We went to a little town close to our home called Yellow Springs. The have a field of sunflowers every year about this time. They are beautiful. We forgot to take a photo of us but here are a few from the field…

There were lots of bees which was great to see

There were even a few that haven’t bloomed yet.

The morning was a perfect time to go! Hope you all have a great rest of the week!
