Sea Shell Sand Is Irresistible

I have sea shell sand spread on the ground in the pea tunnel for a clean walking surface and to add lime to the soil.  You would not believe how irresistible it has been for the little people!!

This is a photo Lucy - she is putting sand in her little net. 

Here's her mom, Carrie and her little brother, Lars...

Lucy got some sand in her boot.....So Cute!!

The zucchini is finally pumping out some blooms...

It's about time! 

It wasn't the best garage sale day ever and it wasn't the worst garage sale day ever....found some canning jars for just under 50 cents a piece.  I figure if I get them for under a dollar I win.

I had a lot of customers today....everyone was hungry for vegetables.
