Since it's official and all, how about some summery sights?

Don't you love it?
Yesterday Sarah and I went berry picking with one of her buddies from school (Ben, the sweetest boy you've ever met), and we came home with these:
Ahhhhh. That's almost TEN POUNDS of juicy, yummy, possibly almost very nearly somewhat organic-ish local strawberries. Amazingly, I had them washed and hulled and frozen by the afternoon. I'm tempted to go back for more to try my hand at freezer jam without dipping into my Brand! New! stash of berry goodness.
And today? Today, peeps, Sarah and I finally planted the new vegetable garden! Here's my lovely assistant telling me all about how she's going to water all the new seedlings.
(Yes, she's in her underwear. That's how we roll, yo.)
My somewhat less lovely, but eminently useful other assistant standing by because... well, because I think I need to put in a third bed.
Cute, right? But not nearly enough space for all the pathetic tomato seedlings still standing by (plus all the other stuff I'd hoped to put in this year -- and I only missed a month of the growing season! Go, me!). After all the work I did to make the space for these two, I feel like a third bed would be no big deal. I mean, I took down two trees, dudes. I'm a Serious Vegetable Gardener now.
