2. Did you know there are three Friday the 13ths this year? January 13th, April 13th and today. And did you know they are all 13 weeks apart? (Randomness from the Scrapbook & Cards Today blog)
3. It's been so very hot here all week and we've had to start the water running on the apple trees, the saskatoon and raspberry bushes. Today we moved on to soak the cucumbers and peas in the garden.
4, We caught a few chickens this morning and weighed them just to see how big they are getting to be. We had a 4 lb. hen and 5 and 6 lb. roosters. They are growing great and I have a butchering date all booked :)
5. This week's featured item from the garden is beets! We've had sauteed beet greens, borscht (beet soup), hot beets with butter and a beet and walnut salad. Tonight I'm going to roast some and try another salad idea.
