Monthly Giveaway Reminder

Just a reminder to leave your comments on our September posts to be entered into a drawing for a $30 rbt bags gift basket at the end of the month!  We are doing this every month and your name gets entered for every comment you make!

Meanwhile, the boys and I are waiting on AT’s return from a week away on a business trip to Indonesia–suffice-it-to-say, we are excited to see him in a few hours and relieved to know that as we speak, he’s actually on U.S. soil.

The mini cantaloup from our garden

Here’s boy #5 with one of the cantaloup from our garden, yes, it really is as small as it looks.  But, it was fully ripe and fell off the vine, so we cut into tiny pieces and nibbled away at it.  We have four or five more growing, hoping they’ll be full-sized, then maybe we can actually fill up on them!  Our tomatoes from our salsa garden are done, the severe drought we had made them stop growing.  Now our salsa garden is a bunch of hot peppers (which apparently love hot, dry weather) with no salsa to put them in.  Oh well, maybe next year…

Full size seeds in a mini cantaloup!

Mini Binder Recipe Books and Planners

I have a new product this fall: the Mini Binder. If you’ve never seen this size binder before (8 1/2 in x 5 1/2 in) and don’t know what’s it’s good for, do not despair! I am here to show you a couple ways to make productive use of this cute little binder and maybe even come up with a few gift ideas for you in the process.  (Don’t freak out, but Christmas is closer than you may think…).
