Baking, Gardening and Enjoying August (TFT PARTY)

 Hi friends! What a wonderful start to August for us here in Northern California! The first day of August came in with a very unexpected, surprise little rain storm.  I was, needless to say, ecstatic! Not only that we NEED IT SO MUCH, but my garden was thrilled! I don’t think I told you yet, but what I decided to do, when trying gardening for myself, was growing Heirloom tomatoes and veggies. 

I’m kind of an information junkie when I start something new. So, I thought if I was going to put in the effort, I wanted the maximum output! My ELEVEN varieties, now,  are coming along quite nicely too! Oh! Did I mention I just finished baking 100 blueberry breakfast cookies for my church today? Yep, busy but happy!

More about my garden soon. Meanwhile, welcome back to the Thursday Favorite Things party! And, Happy August! 

How adorable are these Free French Vintage Labels from My Hubbard Home

Check out the humongous Bountiful NYC Urban Garden: Up on the Roof from Debbees Buzz! Wow!

I’m a sucker for a gnome, Check out these adorable DIY Gnomes from Must Have Mom

Who wouldn’t love a bite, or 5! of this yummy Gluten Free Cheesecake Mousse from What the Fork?! 

Or a bite of Artful Homemaking’s Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread Delish! 

Truly a party with something for everyone! I love it! 
Okay, I have to get back at it, so that’s it for me this week friends. 
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend. 
Many Blessings, 

This is us!

You might be interested in my younger son's urban garden (#58), on the roof of this three story, 1920 rowhouse in one of Philadelphia's historic districts. He too experienced a bumper crop last year.
