Oh yes! Yummy German Johnson tomatoes... almost ripe... almost ready for a fresh, home grown tomato sandwich. There is nothing like the taste of a fresh home grown tomato... maybe in a day or two????
These sunflowers are planted in the edge of our vegetable garden. They were planted for the birds and for our viewing pleasure. I love sunflowers, always have, but I love them even more since I met a new friend from Kansas. I rarely see a pretty sunflower now, without thinking of her! Hello, Trish!

The supplies are easy and very inexpensive. Coffee filters, pipe cleaners, (on sale... half price at Hobby Lobby this week), and paint.
I'm sure our little girls in Sunday school would love to make these, so maybe we'll put this out as a future project at one of our "get togethers". Just thought I would share, since so many of you have kids home for the summer, who are probably "bored" already. :o)

My friend, Mike, used to bring cucumbers into the office covered in sour cream and fresh dill. When Debbie J. at Homemaking Dreams blogged about her fresh basil, I immediately went outside to pick some fresh dill. I planted my dill from seeds this year and this is the first time I've ever grown any... boy, was it yummy chopped up in the cucumber salad. (let your cukes sit in salt for awhile before you mix the sour cream and dill together) We had cucumber salad left over, and my daughter made some awesome greek pitas with the leftovers. Cubed chicken breasts, lettuce, and chopped up cukes from the salad, all stuffed inside pita bread (left over from the Noah's Ark sandwiches mentioned in a recent post). YUMMY!
Next I mixed together this squash casserole from fresh home grown squash. I don't really follow a recipe, but use squash, onion, stuffing mix, sour cream, and cream of chicken soup. Love this stuff!

I picked up this little Holly Hobby to embroider on Monday. This is as far as I got, as the week got busy and I never got back around to finishing her. This was actually a vintage crewel kit that I purchased sometime back, with all the nice "70's" colors of thread. I decided to make her and her friend (can you see the other one?) in redwork.
