Photo of the Week: TWINS!

While twin calves are not common, they are not particularly rare either. However, twin heifers only come along once in a blue moon. These two little darlings were born early early Sunday morning, and Jake is accepting them as a Father's Day gift from the universe, LOL.


As you can see, getting born and having your first meal is exhausting, so they were not in the mood for a portrait shoot.

On the way back to the house, I stopped to pull a weed from my tomato beds and lo! and behold, we have tiny green tomatoes on the vines already. I always plant too many tomatoes, but I can't seem to help myself. They are SO good!


And oh, the promise of good things to come!


Sunday was also Alice's 18th birthday, and she requested a cheesecake for dessert. I tried out a new recipe for a Raspberry White Chocolate Truffle version, which turned out very well, but it is very rich. Trust me, a little goes a very long way!

The photo didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped, so I guess food photography has its tricks like any other subject. Time to do some googling.

Awww.. I hope we get to see some more photos of the twin girls when they are finally up and about.

Look at those tomato blossoms! One thing I don't like about FL- they don't grow good tomatoes here.

Happy birthday, Alice! That cheesecake looks delish.....

MMMMMMMM..... moo

and... my tomatoes are quite a ways behind yours...but, I do have a few little flowers on some... the stems seem a bit spindly. A friend gave us some plants that he had grown from seeds... so I am trying to baby them along...
