Busy. Busy. Busy.

Wow.  Time sure does fly.  Life has gotten so busy.  Spring always is.  But I think it is even busier now chasing a 16 month old while trying to plant the garden and clean up the yard.  Plus this month I've been at work three days a week.

With the exception of the tomato and pepper seedlings that I've got growing in pots on the kitchen counter, the garden  was planted as of this afternoon.  I'll plant the tomatoes and peppers this weekend.   The seed in the garden I used was old, so I planted several seeds per hole.  I'll thin later.  I say that now, we'll see.  I'm not so good when it comes to thinning my garden.

Yesterday was the first anniversary of the Mile High Swappers.  There was joint swap at Cure Organic Farms outside of Boulder.  People came from the Boulder swap group, the Denver group and the Fort Collins group.  There was so much homemade goodness to choose from.  I made strawberry-jalapeno jam, strawberry-lemon marmalade, and Victoria (Rhubarb) Sauce.
This is what I came home with.  I got lots of bread products.  Homemade whole wheat, a loaf of Swedish bread, Challah,  carrot-apple muffins, a bag of homemade oatmeal cream pies (think little debbie), homemade chocolate peanut butter candy bar, granola, peach syrup, ham and beans, and lemon curd.

Plus there was a raffle to make money for a give back program.  One of the swappers was buys getting local businesses to donate their wares for us to win.  I scored a gift certificate to a farm stand and a five pound rib roast.  Yum.   All in all it was a great swap and I can't wait for the next one.

Today was a busy day as well.  This is the first time I've sat down all day.  And on that note I'm going to bed.

  1. It might be busy but it sure does sound like fun! The swap looks so good and tasty. I do not think we have that around here.
