Friday afternoon we went and picked Daddy up from the airport, and boy are we ever glad to have him home! We went out to dinner and spent a quiet evening at home... as quiet as it can get with two excited little boys bouncing off the walls!
Saturday was busy as ever! First we went and picked five LARGE bowls of tomatoes from the garden. Guess who will be canning salsa on Labor Day?!
While out in the garden I noticed that some of our onions have gone to seed. I have never seen them get to the point where they are growing baby onions, so of course I had to grab my camera and take a picture!
We weeded the garden too, and it looks much better now. Then Honey Daddy went and clipped the rose bushes. We still have a few holdouts adding color to our yard.
Earlier in the week we managed to accidentally catch another bug while we were picking peaches to make raspberry-peach jam. I am not sure, but I think this is a leaf bug.
I tried to convince Jonah that we should let the bug go, but that resulted in tears. He has decided that this leaf bug is his new pet and if we let him go we will never see him again!
I decided to pick my battles. So for now we gave the bug some leaves to eat and left him in the jar outside. Maybe in a couple of days Jonah will have lost interest and his pet bug can "escape" or something!
