I know, sounds like a weird title, but it pretty much sums up this post. First, let’s talk about cucumbers. And cucumbers. And how about cucumbers? So we planted our first garden this year. Actually, Joel planted it, I’ve only done the weeding (which I basically quit doing a few weeks ago… it was fun for the first while and then got less fun as time went on). I’d say we were pretty ambitious for it being our first garden. We planted everything from corn to jalapenos, and it’s kind of been hit and miss for what’s grown well.
It’s a good thing that we enjoyed eating our lettuce for awhile, because the cucumbers decided to take over the whole area. I’ve never actually seen cucumbers in so many shapes and sizes before, but I guess you could say that they have been successful :). We’ve been trying to give them away to anyone who steps foot in our house.
My favorite part is watching Wyatt pretend they’re different objects, which ranges from a phone to a baseball bat. It’s pretty funny and I usually laugh until there’s a giant cucumber flying at my face.
Our peas were pretty much a bust, and so were our carrots. I guess it’s been a good learning experience though, and we’ll know what to plant and what not to plant for next year.
Okay, on to Jack. Like I mentioned on Friday, we went to the Jack Johnson concert. I bought the tickets months ago and have been counting down the days. He’s been one of my very favorite artists (cause you have favorites and very favorites too, right?) before most people even knew who he was, so it’s safe to say that that I was excited. And my birthday was on Thursday, the day before, so it worked out as a perfect birthday present to myself :).
The best part of the night was actually before the real concert even started. The opening acts, G Love and ALO, were performing on a small stage behind the amphitheater, and we ended up wandering over to listen. We were so glad we did when they welcomed Jack up to the stage with them! Heehee, the tiny crowd around the stage got pretty big pretty fast.
We were only a few people back from the front, so it was great.
The “real” concert was so much fun too, which I’ll spare you of more details about. All in all it was a perfect night.
