Summer Evening

Enjoying our backyard tonight.  I love this oak tree!  No real garden here yet, but there's an upside to taking a break from that.  I can read a trashy novel & watch the kids play without feeling compelled to weed.


Spring has Sprung!

I usually wait patiently till the end of April to plant my garden, but this year spring is so early that I don't think I can wait!
My daughter and I made a lot of progress clearing out the weeds today. Now that she's five, she is finally more of a help than a hindrance! She also is old enough to put in requests; she really wants to try to grow watermelon again. (Let's hope the groundhog is gone for good!)
So I think a trip to the garden center is in the near future...
