Catching Up

Life (as usual) continues at an alarming rate. Fall was wonderful, we enjoyed a bountiful harvest from our garden, Thanksgiving was fantastic, Christmas was wonderfully busy, and through it all I (more often than I care to admit) was dealing ungracefully with morning/noon/night sickness, now that I am feeling MUCH better I can resume posting in my haphazard fashion.

Today is our half-way mark, 20 Weeks until we meet the newest member of our family!

Square Foot Gardening

Garden boxes set and leveled, waiting for “Mel’s Mix”.

Joshua loves playing in the garden.

Plants set out.

Growing bigger and stronger.

Pumpkins on the left end, Potatoes in the center, double deep and Peas and Tomatoes in the right end.

All our plants are growing like crazy, Peppers (Hot and Sweet), Onions, Cabbage, Lettuce, Beets, Peas, Cucumbers, Broccoli, Kale, Spinach, Radishes, Kohlrabi, Carrots, Potatoes, Tomatoes, Sage, Basil, Spearmint, Peppermint and Flowers.

The compost bins in the back are almost finished, one more door and some paint and trim.  We will put sod around the boxes in a few weeks to cover up the clay soil and weeds there now.

Eva’s Banty chickens, Charlie used to chase them out of his corral, he now tolerates them pretty well.

Trying to give an Independence Day flair to the outside of the house, the siding needs to be replaced (with Adobe Brick this summer hopefully), the porch rebuilt and the satelite dish must come down!

Eight is Great!!

Happy Birthday Jonah! It was a wonderful day.

Back from his first Cub Scout Meeting.  Jonah’s Birthday was a busy day,   gifts and a special breakfast to start the day, Baptism in the afternoon and cub scouts in the evening.  We are so grateful for everyone who helped make this such a special and memorable day for Jonah.

Congratulations Jonah!

Have a great day!!
