I got my garden in for the most part and have been loving every moment of it; we have been getting radishes, lettuce and spinich, I love going out to the garden and picking fresh veggies. My pea’s and beans are just starting to blossom; I have several rows that are also just up, I tried to plant a few weeks apart so I get a longer growing season. My tomatoes are also starting to bloom; I hope to make salsa this year on top of the tomatoe sauce I put up each year. I still have a few squash and cantalope to put in; I am also going to try sweet potatoes. I may not have enough room; but I can’t make my garden any bigger, so I had better figure out how to use it more wisely.

I have three hens; one of which is sitting on 6 eggs, and I am hoping they all hatch out. The kids will love to have the baby chicks around; and by the time they hatch out, it will be warm enought that I won’t worry to much. I love getting fresh eggs; it is like easter everyday!

I got a few landscaping timbers and started the front flowerbeds last week; it is slow going since I have to carefully weed the beds to make sure I don’t, pull up something that was acutally planted. I had started to plant things when we first moved in almost 8 years ago; but I sort of just forgot about the flowerbeds and what not in the chaos of having young kids, now that they are a bit older I can start doing stuff again. So far I have almost half of the flowerbed weeded; I did spray some weed killer on some of the tougher weeds, and now that it has had time to work I need to finish weeding. I have irises that a friend gave me that I will plant; and I noticed that my glads that I had planted had doubled, so I have some of thoses that I can seperate and plant.

I am still working on getting plants for the home orchard; but I still have some serious clearing to do in order to have room for them all. I did get a few blueberries and have some of them planted and need to plant the rest.
