I have not posted pictures in awhile, so let’s just get right on it:

Meanwhile, Joan and Kate caught about a million baby toads at my friend’s house yesterday morning. They put them in a Nalgene bottle and brought them home to “train”. They are the tiniest little guys you ever saw:
So far we’ve only had to bury 3 (out of, according to the Toad Census 2009, 26). Not bad, not bad. They’ve been making their home in our previously empty sand and water table. We are going to have to release them, but so far the girls have convinced me that their training is not complete and they just need a bit more time with them.
The Bigs like to put on “shows” for our family, sometimes even making up “programs” ahead of time (and sometimes even charging us for them!). They are usually a combo of trampoline tricks, Camp Rock/High School Musical songs, and some healthy bickering. Last night’s was supposed to also include “Toad Tricks”, but the show had to be cancelled at the last minute due to a scheduling conflict with the performers (i.e. rehearsal overshot bedtime).
Finally, here’s what we got in our farm share for Week 6:
Arugula, lettuce, beets, more effing radishes that are now too hot to eat, kohlrabi, white radishes, white onions
