The Weather
The weather man says a couple cooler mornings Mon. and Tues.

Our days always warm up to the upper 70's.
Might even have some 80's!

Right Now I  am
Thinking it's time to plant!

Finally made the enchilada's and they were amazing! Made Spanish rice and refried beans. 

Looks like a week I did all I planned. That's one for my Ta Da List!

In the garden
The potatoes are growing!
Inpatients and Zinnia's are sprouting.
I am not sure how many of the first planting of Pansy's from seeds are going to make it. 
The second egg carton I am letting grow a little more before setting out.
Lettuce has leaves.  The Kale or Swiss Chard I forget which one 
has bigger leaves now. 
Green peas that I transplanted are growing.  I direct sowed some seeds but they are not sprouting. 
And last I planted Morning Glories on the fence and made my own trellis. 
Planted Sunflower seeds

Something fun to share
