{harvest} Mulberries

A quick internet research on mulberries reveal that they are one of the best fruits to eat. Mulberries contain resveratrol, the same ingredient that makes red wine so healthy. They, as you can imagine, are also high in antioxidants, vitamins, and fiber, all the things that are so very good for you. Mulberries can help you improve your sight, digestive system, cholesterol, blood sugar levels, immune system, and even prevent cancer! So since we have a giant mulberry tree at our new house, I've been fighting off the birds and the squirrels to harvest these tasty little morsels all week. If you have a mulberry tree nearby, harvest away! You can turn the mulberries that you don't eat into jam, or dehydrate them to snack on later. There are really only two things to note: 1) The darker the skin, the sweeter the berry; 2) Zach and I ate a couple of handfuls before we noticed the microscopic bugs that crawl all over the mulberries. Soaking then rinsing the mulberries in some salt water will take care of the critters, so nothing to worry about!

Abstracting from Nature

Zach finally finished the giant linoblock he's been carving for his next chapbook. The images, all abstracted from photos taken on walks with the baby, are something new he is trying out ...





How do you like them? This one (above) of the moon is my favorite.


Here's a quick little clip of a flip through:

furry friends

We went to our friends Margy and Jerry's house for dinner last night. And even though the food and company were fantastic, I was most thrilled to pet and snuggle up with all their puppies and kitties. That's me, sandwiched between Bailey and Andy. I'm a lucky gal. :)

{harvest} sweet peas

We grew peas to make baby food.

Yes, we are cruel parents. Hahahahaha!

On a serious note though, can you believe the baby is turning 6 months old in just a couple of days? Zach is so excited to feed her "solids" and to cook her some gourmet baby food!

Gallery Walk Tonight

The first Gallery Walk of the 2016 season is tonight! If you're out and about, please stop by ZMEDstudios on N. 6th Street, just around the corner from McCords' Candies.

We have a sale planned just for it. We are in the midst of a move and are in a mood to purge. So Zach is hosting a very special Name-Your-Price sale. If you've had your eye on a piece, just come in and make an offer! Or, even if you're not in the mood to buy, stop in anyway just to say hi!

We'd love to see you!

Our Legendary Cat

It's becoming a tradition to have Zach include our cat in his public art pieces. Here he is, in the alley by the Lahr apartments. He is looking pretty magnificent.
