This morning I got together with some of the other Morgan women to make strawberry jam. It was my first time canning, and it really wasn't that hard. We ended up making both jam and strawberry topping for ice cream, cheesecake, etc. I can't wait to make some fresh rolls to spread this yummy jam on!
We did have a strawberry bandit, though:
Caught red faced!

This weekend was all about relaxing with Phillip and cruising around our neighborhood. We made our way over the the Broadripple Farmer's Market with LuLu. There were tons of dogs there, she was a little overwhelmed. I was pleasantly surprised at the variety of produce that was available for it being so early in the season. We got strawberries, shitake mushrooms and green onions. I'm hoping to get farm fresh eggs and honey on our next trip.

Look at my new raised beds that Phillip & Scott made for me! They made them for me yesterday afternoon, and I couldn't stop myself from planting in them last night. I used (aka: sent the link to Phillip) this tutorial from my favorite blogger to make the raised beds. I planted herbs (basil, oregano, chives, dill & parsley), radishes, butter lettuce, red lettuce, broccoli, green peppers, yellow squash, green beans, onions and tomatoes. I can't wait for my first harvest!
