We're having a potluck today to say goodbye to Jennifer. We'll miss her!

Check out the picture on the Abe's Army blog at http://abesarmy.blogspot.com/. My friends Pam and Jo-An and I went to orientation the other night. You can see us in the front row. I'm the one in the black jacket (I was freezing in this cold May weather!) who looks like she's sleeping. Jo-An is in blue to the left and there's Pam in her cute purple outfit. The lady sitting on the other side of me is Jo-An's friend Brenda. Anyway, we're all going to walk walk walk this summer getting ready to walk Abe's Amble, a 10K race at the state fair in August.

Corn plants. I guess maybe some people would want a head start on their corn crop. Just seems a little weird to me. Mark and I did a test one year with tomato plants. We planted a huge one with blooms from a garden center along with our little baby starts from seed. Then we waited for our first ripe tomato. No difference.

I'm happy to report the rabbit population has gone down over the last couple of weeks. Lilla and G are doing their part to take care of the garden. Of course, there has also been some damage from all the tromping and bounding and tracking. But hey, it's their garden too.

Last year I harvested all the blooms I could, then had Mark cut the plants back to the ground. The blooms are precious, but the plants are thugs! But here we are again, and this little hand-tied is so sweet that I'm just going to let them run wild.
