Butterflies and lettuce

Bug & I spotted these butterflies on our walk today. We decided that we needed to take pictures of them to share. There was a Monarch, as well, but it got away.

We've also managed to grow some Salad Bowl lettuce. Bug LOVES it when we go into the back yard to get food. She's quite fond of chives. I need to take a pic of her with them. It's hilarious. I'm close to banning them from the house, though...the smell is a bit much.

Pretty! We have had an insane number of Red Admiral Butterflies on our area too. The most I have ever seen - usually there is a mix, but this year...

How great she loves lettuce and chives! My 4 year old is exposed to all kinds of things, and loves to help grow it, pick it, clean it, and prepare/cook it, but will NOT eat it! ;)

Mmmmmmmmmmmm...I grew Salad Bowl lettuce and chives this year too. YUM! My mom told my 3 year old niece that the chives "are probably dill or something" and my niece told her, "No! They are chives and you put them on potatoes." I'm glad you're growing some fresh food in your own backyard. How about some basil so you can make pesto?????
