Olio: A miscellaneous collection of things
Grandson’s play with the big guy backfired. He is under there somewhere.
First pint of pickled jalapenos from the garden. It will take dozens more to get Jim through the year, especially if Todd wants some too.
First summer squash and bell pepper. The little pepper is a cayenne that broke off before ripening. There are small cucumbers, still lots of greens, the first of the bush beans and the last of the peas. The garden is full on providing most of what we want in veggies now. The winter squash and pumpkins are taking over the compost bins, the sweet potato vines are thriving.
Yesterday, grandson was afraid of his bike, by the end of a session he would coast down a short hill.
Today it was a longer hill and then as I was running beside him holding his seat, I let go and he rode the length of the school parking lot, over and over. He still needs an assist to get going, but once he is moving, he is off. I took a video, but can’t figure out how to upload it here.
