This is the after picture.
I had to take out the lettuce.
I learned tomato plants really block out the light.
This all the leaves I clipped off.
This is what it looked like before.
The leaves were almost touching the lights and the lettuce was not doing well.

Here is a sample of what some of our tomatoes look like.
Thank you for checking out our lettuce, tomatoes and chives.
I have never had one of my children say the funny things that people send to different magazines. I just had to share it with all of you.
Please share if you have anything funny your children have said to you.

1 cup butter
½ cup powdered sugar
¼ cup cornstarch
1 ½ cups flour
Whip butter until fluffy. Stir in the rest of the ingredients and beat well. Drop by teaspoons onto a non-greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375° for 12-15 minutes; watch the edges so they are not too brown. Cool on wire rack. Makes 2 dozen.
These are some of my favorite cookies. I hope you like shortbread cookies too.

This could not have been said better!!!!
Real Mothers don't eat quiche; they don't have time to make it.
Real Mothers know that their kitchen utensils are probably in the sandbox ..
Real Mothers often have sticky floors,filthy ovens and happy kids.
Real Mothers know that dried play dough doesn't come out of carpets.
Real Mothers don't want to know what the vacuum just sucked up.
Real Mothers sometimes ask 'Why me?'and get their answer when a little voice says, 'Because I love you best.'
Real Mothers know that a child's growth is not measured by height or years or grade...It is marked by the progression of Mommy to Mom to Mother...
The Images of Mother
4 YEARS OF AGE - My Mommy can do anything!
8 YEARS OF AGE - My Mom knows a lot! A whole lot!
12 YEARS OF AGE - My Mother doesn't really know quite everything.
14 YEARS OF AGE - Naturally, Mother doesn't know that, either..
16 YEARS OF AGE - Mother? She's hopelessly old-fashioned.
18 YEARS OF AGE - That old woman? She's way out of date!
25 YEARS OF AGE - Well, she might know a little bit about it!
35 YEARS OF AGE - Before we decide, let's get Mom's opinion.
45 YEARS OF AGE - Wonder what Mom would have thought about it?
65 YEARS OF AGE - Wish I could talk it over with Mom.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes,because that is the doorway to her heart,the place where love resides.The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole,but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows,and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!

I had now better get off the Internet in case Jon is trying to call. I am very lucky, because he is able to call almost every day. I enjoy telling him how smart Bridger is and how much trouble he can get into. For example, last night while I was fixing popcorn Bridger decided to play with the baby powder. He poured it all over the side table, the floor and himself. I took the vacuum cleaner and cleaned everything, including him. I needed to vacuum anyway: the dogs shed all the time and dirt is brought in from the backyard.
Disaster does strike after supper. I am running water in the sink for the dishes when the dogs start barking. I try to get them to come in, but only two come. I go outside to get the others and then I remember that the faucet is on. I try to get through the sliding glass door, but it has locked. I had learned after the first time I was locked out that it is important to always keep the side door to the garage unlocked to have a back-up entry into the house. I was fortunate that time that the sliding glass door was open. I hurry through the garage and get to the sink. I am lucky that water isn’t going all over the floor, but into the other basin instead. I turn the water off and go back to the garage to call the dogs inside. They come immediately, because the other dogs are back inside.
I would enjoy any stories that you have.

That is the end of the story. Now we have to take care of some business. Did the moose rip up the cookbook, no? He did not rip up the cookbook, because you need them to cook with.
Now we can finish the story. And the moose was in his home when the bears came because they were invited for dinner. The end. The end.
There are animals in the forest
That's all I have to write.

I think this stem is about as thick as my finger. I never saw such a short stocky tomato plant before. All of my other plants have been weak and spindly.
We finally have flowers. I am really excited, that means we will be eating tomatoes soon.
