|Empty Garden :(|
And this of course is the Dandelion. You can also use this weed for many things. The greens can be used in salads, and parts of it (I have no idea which parts) can be used to make a wine. Some out front are starting to into the magical puff balls the kids love to blow around to of course make more of these "pesky" weeds.
And these little boogers - well we have been stomping around the state land near our house in hopes of finding them because everyone keeps telling us how delicious they are. We have looked multiple times with no success. Cameron was cleaning the yard on Sunday and guess what he finds to the west of the house. Right under the bedroom windows next to a pine tree. Yep - Morel Mushrooms! Now we just have to fry some up and see how they taste.
And lastly, I am patiently waiting for Mom and Dad to come back home so we can do something with all these flower beds. In the meantime, Cameron and I went to the nursery in Grand Rapids to get some plants for the garden and I couldn't resist picking up this little beauty and bringing her home.
