Organic Veggie Share

Tis the season for the things of green!!

We just received our first delivery of Grant Family Farms vegetable share:

Lettuce, Spinach, Cilantro, Green Onions, Parsely and Rhubarb.

Looks like it is salad and salsa for us this week! We are doing a 26-week Family Share with our good friends and since there wasn't really enough Rhubarb to do anything spectacular with, they whipped us up some Rhubarb muffins! Ever had them? A lot like a cranberry muffin (picture eating one of those with coffee and fall leaves) but this particular Rhubarb goodie is so summer-y and would go great with fruit salad or iced tea. Yum.

In other news...

Our vacation was epic. Such a needed and good time to escape for a few days. We took a daily 5 mile hike/walk along the river that ran behind our hotel, biked 9 miles round trip from Avon to Edwards, and enjoyed reconnecting and relaxing. It was a great trip but also glad to be back!

We officially backed out of the house we were under contract with. Foundation issues were mounting and it was a minimum of $17K to fix everything. Um, no thank you. We just submitted a new offer for a house in Golden. This one already has a sweet God-story brewing... We were asking the Lord to just consider lowering the price and within the next 12 hours there was word that the bank would accept $25K less than the asking price which just so happens to be in our price range! Dang Lord. We'll keep you posted.

Ryan heads back to work today and I get back into MPD (Ministry Partner Development) for Campus Crusade. We have some fun stuff planned this weekend with the Dads for Father's Day as well as a wedding, and a LONG bike ride.

Then God said, "Look! I have given you every seed-bearing plant throughout the earth and all the fruit trees for your food."
Genesis 1:29
