Excitement ran through our house as we had our first harvest of the year! We have many tomatoes and peppers growing on our plants, so this is just the first of what we hope will be many more to come.
With one pepper, we really couldn't do much cooking. As Max loves jalapenos, I decided to offer the pepper to her. Denied! She just kept turning her head so she wouldn't even have to look at the offending vegetable. The pepper remains uneaten but I will try again tonight.
I think this is the first time she's seen a bowl of cabbage, and she ran over to investigate. She didn't throw it out of the bowl like she does with greens, but she was licking it.
This picture doesn't go along with any theme I may have going today, but he's just so adorable, especially when he's trying to show me how big and scary he is. This was taken while he spent some time in the bathroom as I changed their food and water in the morning. He has been covering his head with his wing and chewing on one of his toes, which I'm trying to capture with the camera since that's such strange behavior!
But when he sees me come in with the camera, he starts posing before I can get a shot.
He just looks so cuddly and it's all I can do to not grab him up and hug him, like Thomas does. Luckily my brain has been able to restrain this impulse as I would surely be bloody if I ever tried such a stunt with him!
