promise kept! yeah...hand slap!
Can you see it!?!?!? My first tomato! It is so beyond cute! I think this is pretty much life size! We have 6 plants and last count 6 tomatoes...ha ha...but they are beautiful plants! Luckily our neighbors have the touch and have been keeping us stocked up with tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers and assorted things!
Speaking of the wild, last week, we had a Park Day with the home school group. My desert raised children found frogs, big ones, little ones and ones that were hidden under rocks! I had to explain to the California parents that were looking at my children like un-socialized home school children (something frowned upon..ha ha...little HS humor) that in the desert they don't have frogs...horny toads yes, but cute little frogs and toads; nope!My kids came to me with that look...can we keep them? aaaaaaaaaaaaaaw, of course I said yes! Find some bugs to feed the reptiles and we will figure this out. Plus I didn't have my camera and this of course was a scrapbooking moment, as my dear hubby likes to say!
The frogs were bundled up and brought home, to be tormented by my children..no, no, I mean taken out of box and allowed to jump, be squeezed and dropped and then put back in the box! The kids found some rolly pollies..but the newly acquired frogs were not eatting....this is not good. We looked up on the internet, care for frogs...
DO NOT KEEP FROGS FOUND IN THE WILD...THEY WILL DIE!
Sadness, but the frogs had to go back! One last frolic with the children and bundled back up and brought back to the original place of capture:click on the picture and look close under the rock, you will see one toad and one little frog..this is where they were first found...they just jumped right back under...extremely happy I am sure!
After the release to the wild, camera in hand...pictures must be taken! My awesome kids...
tomorrow see Coach Anne in action and some baseball shots!
