Strawberries Everywhere!

As most of you know, I live in Las Vegas.  Yes, it's hot. Yes, it's windy. Yes, our dirt has NO nutrients in it to grow anything and Yes, I'm not a gardener.  However, for some reason my garden seems to flourish every year.  You might remember my post last summer about my Basil harvest here.  
Lots and Lots of Pesto!  

My strawberry plants didn't do very well last year so I wasn't going to do anything with them this year.  And then this happened-

It's so funny that when I posted this pictured yesterday on Facebook majority of my Vegas friends were in disbelief and thought I bought them.  Those silly friends. {how I love them}

These plants are from last year and came back twice as strong this year literally overnight.  So this is the lesson in patience. {insert the rolling eyes from my children}

And no Garden is complete without Wine!

Yep, those are grapes......

Have a great Monday!

Craft Show Success

Last weekend was The Polkadot Owl Market and it was a success!  Veronica and I have been working on this Market for a few months and all of our work paid off. 

 We ended up with 18 vendors, around 80+ people stopped by to shop and visit and everyone wanted to know if we could do this every weekend.  umm, Not!  {but I did think about how we can do it more often}

Day 2 

Here are a few pics of our vendors and shoppers:
