Dinner

helping set the table

We’ve been doing a little unit study on A Pair of Red Clogs by Masako Matsuno. Tonight we took a trip to Japan. Bathrobe “kimonos,” a table made of boxes, and a bunch of new (to Autumn) foods, made for a fun evening. And she not only tried the new stuff, but liked it! Especially the miso soup, dumplings, and sushi. 🙂

Outside Today

Autumn ADORES her sandbox. She would happily spend 24 hours a day in it if I would let her.

First of the Day Lilies to bloom.


A couple raised beds. I’m not sure why one of them is so much more productive than the other one. Since they’re basically the same. I think the second one must just need more compost.
