Oh, how I love the garden eating time of year! We've had much corn on the cob, potatoes, tomatoes (from others so far, just a couple from ours), raspberries, beans, carrots, blackberries. I don't think I'd ever get tired of eating this fresh stuff. I'm not yet, and it may freeze soon. We have many quarts of beans, lots of raspberry and strawberry jam. Yesterday Kallie and I picked 3 full 5 gallon buckets of big beautiful pears. We've had some peaches and nectarines. UUUUUUMMMMM!!!!!!

The girls and I weeded the garden every day for 1/2 hour for a while and haven't had to for about a month now. That worked well. Dad's watering system worked well, too.

Love ya,

My daughter did this and I thought I would, too:

1. I stash chocolate in the cupboard just for when I need it!
2. I like to treat myself out to eat when I go places.
3. Deseret Industries is a money trap for me--it's my favorite store.
4. I will take naps EVERY time I can get one.
5. I like to read on the pot for a long time.
6. I really like to sing at the piano all alone in the house to Heavenly Father and Jesus.
7. My poor house plants have been resurrected so many times--they're incredible.
8. Sometimes I don't brush my teeth at night.
9. I yell with joy the first day of school when everyone's gone.
10. I wish I could live in the temple.
