I planted zucchini and cucumbers the first week in April. I heard they were pretty easy to grow and I wanted to try growing my own vegetables so I'd (hopefully) be more inclined to cook with them. The plants are doing pretty well although I did have to spray them with a bug spray a couple weeks ago because some leaves were showing a little bit of damage. I have had a few zucchini on each of my three plants, but so far only one has grown to full size. The others have turned yellow and look like they're not going to make it. I'm hoping I will get more as the summer goes on. So far no cucumbers yet but I'm thinking it's just a little early for them.

My Mom came to visit for an extended weekend. We had a little barbecue with family which was nice. We invited Kinsey's birth mother but she didn't come, and we were sad but we hope to connect with her again soon. We were able to see her and her family on the week prior on Mother's Day which was nice. Unfortunately Kinsey was a little cranky that day for some reason so we didn't stay as long as we would have liked.

I promise I'm not going to turn this blog into a coupon match-up site...haha. I just thought this might help some of you interested in couponing get an idea of how much you can get for free. This was all purchased from Fry's this week! I'll be donating the toothpaste and toothbrushes because I get those for free all the time, and I already have enough on hand to last several months.
