How does your garden grow?

This year not so well. Guilty of outright neglect.
Next year will be better. Pinkie promise.
Right this very minute I am making a cold cucumber soup with fresh dill. Not from my garden, which has mostly never had veggies or herbs in it anyway. Unless you count the mint that threatened to take over the city. But still.
And I am trying these zucchini fritters from whipped to go along with.
(100 Proof Press (veggies), Herbarium or Leavenworth Jackson? (guano bag)
I cannot tell you how I ended up with a bag of dancing guano (that's bat ... fertilizer). Well, actually I can tell you how I ended up with it ... it came in a grab bag purchase. I don't think even I would willingly buy a stamp of a bag of dancing guano. It is kind of cute, though.
I cut the stamp outline and the shadow out with the Craft Robo.

Canon SELPHY ES40 Compact Photo Printer

Canon SELPHY ES40 Compact Photo Printer: "SELPHY ES40"
Why I am thinking about another photo printer is beyond me. While on vacation I managed to change the settings on my camera without realizing it, and all the way from New York to Cape Cod I took pictures that can only be printed out on a postage stamp.
