It's March but that means its almost sunny season here in California. I can't wait to spend my Friday afternoons out here with a cold cocktail, my pups and some knitting!

I just got around to eating the carrots that I unearthed here and oh my are they the most exciting thing. EVER! I mean it! Purple outside, orange inside. Color fun!
I tried carrots in the garden for the first time this year. Multi-colored and cute! Now I'm thinking I need to put some parsnip seeds in for fall!
Welcome to my newest obsession, avocado smoothies! A little yogurt, some ice, a touch of honey and you're headed to wow-land! This smoothie is creamy, sweet, savory and delicious. Go get a ripe avocado and wip one up! Now I'm watching the baby avocados on my tree with a new intensity, I can't wait until I can make these from my own crop!
1 ripe avocado, halved and pitted
1 cup milk
1/2 cup yogurt
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
8 ice cubes
Combine ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve with your favorite color straw!

Happy Mother's Day to my Mom and my Mummy! I think my mother and my mother-in-law are my two biggest blog readers, commenters and fans. They both love looking at the photos from my garden and we always end up talking about plants on any given phone call. I've learned a lot about gardening from both of them and I know my garden wouldn't be half of what it is without their passed on knowledge. So cheers to the two mothers in my life, I love you both!
And here's some photos of the garden just today for you to enjoy!
