Onion Braid + Carousel
This is the first year I have had success with gardening, and my success only came because I am gardening with three other very talented women. Two of them have even killed gophers with their bare garden tools. I am very proud to garden in such company.
This braid of onions is my share (minus the ones the gophers got), along with the small mountain of zucchini I have received every week for the last few weeks. We have eaten zucchini as a layer in lasagne, an extra in waffles, and in lots of zucchini bread over the last little while.
Incidentally, Henry eats the bread and the waffles, so I am succeeding in my secret vegetable infiltration attempts. Hooray!
There is a birthday for someone very special in our family this week. We celebrated Monday because he will be going out of town to a conference on his birthday. Total cost for our family to ride the carousel: $2.
