I found these stunning images today by Kari Herer and just had to share them. I love the blue and bright orange together, but especially like the polka dot back ground. They have such a vintage feel that makes them so fun.

My daughter and her friend have been dreaming about selling vegetables all winter. Now the summer is here and when they sell together it's a blast, but when my daughter is stuck selling vegetables alone (or, worse, with her little brother) it's just ho hum. Here she is trying (well, not really) to put on a good face. At least her little brother is having fun.

I want to tell you I love everything about the garden, but alas, it's not true. I dread green bean snapping time (as do my kids). I like green beans, but I wish my husband wouldn't plant so many. Two or three plants would suffice, not twenty. Ugh.
The snapping is actually my favorite part. What I dread is picking the beans in blazing heat, then having to blanch them. If I put it off long enough my husband will pick them, my kids snap and I only have to blanch.

Why is the garden such a dynamic place? Because there is a constant tugging between chaos and control. The garden pulls towards the chaotic, while we strive to gain control. This challenge somehow drives us to dive in deeper and deeper.
Darn it, we want to badly overpower it...pulling unwanted plants, shearing shrubs into balls, sweeping lawnmowers over grass. The garden just keeps pushing back. Maybe we all just love a good fight.
