The lawn has been loving the cool, wet weather and I have finally gotten the entire lawn mowed. It was long enough to almost bale it. The last of it required raising the deck and taking a half swath in order to make it through. One good thing is that all of that long grass on the lawn was picked up and used to mulch the walking rows in the garden. I was able to mulch 4 1/2 rows with a nice thick layer of the cut grass clippings.
The other thing to cross off the list was the farmstand awning. Nathan and Michelle were at the farm this weekend and Nathan put in some time helping to stabilize the awning's front edge. A couple more screws and a little paint and it was ready to move down to the end of the driveway. I put a few tomato seedlings down there for sale and tomorrow hope to add some leeks and lettuces and Brussels sprouts seedlings.

And a teaser
Blog posts have been pretty infrequent lately but I have lots of material to post about. Soon. I recently served several appetizers to a group that I belong to when it was my turn to serve lunch. I helped my sister with her daughter's graduation party and she has promised her recipes which were all very good and easy to prepare. And this weekend, my daughter Nikole will be celebrating a milestone birthday and there will be food. And recipes. And pictures. Plus I vow to get caught up on the cookbook reviews and recipes.
