Hello California

Mr. J and I are officially Californians now.  Moving is a crazy, hectic, umm....kind of a traumatic experience, and I don't recommend it for the faint of heart! But, the dust is settling here, and things are getting back to normal. 

We found a small house to rent while Mr. J is in school, and as a bonus, we've inherited a sort of neglected, but super productive vegetable garden. There's a horseshoe pit, and the previous tenants even had a chicken coop.  Not that I'm into that sort of thing.  A couple of friends who've come over called it our little farm.  Awww.  We've always wanted a farm!! 

Check out our cherry tomatoes (there are literally zillions of these):

And our heirloom tomatoes, ripening away:





Sunflowers! Bees!

And our lone farm animal, chewing sticks in the shade.

We have so much produce, it's kind of ridiculous.  We've barbequed corn, onions, squash, zucchini, and made salsa, pasta and bruschetta with the tomatoes.  What do you even do with that many tomatoes??  Help!  I'll keep y'all posted on some of our successful summer recipes.

It's good to be back!
