I’ve been politely ignoring the blog for the past few weeks. It would nudge me and whisper “please write something” and I would quietly respond “I’m just too busy right now, maybe tomorrow.” Which promptly turned into three weeks. I think.
Anywho I’ve neglected to mention on here that we are expecting another baby at the end of the summer! We are so excited!! But there is a lot to do to get ready. Since we moved to a new house last fall we haven’t really done anything with the bedrooms. Now we are doing the bedroom shuffle. Our son is moving to a new room, his room is becoming the extra room, and the new nursery will be in the room that currently houses all our extra unpacked boxes from moving. So we are basically redoing 2 kids rooms, though I am having a lot of fun decorating.
My son also recently turned two and we had a party for him at our house for family and a few friends. That involved some new craft projects which I am excited to share.
Finally we have been rushing to get the garden planted once the weather finally warmed up. We had snow on May 2nd! We finally finished it for the most part this week, and I have a few pictures to share today.
If you remember from the last update, we turned a tiered rock bed in our backyard into a vegetable garden. We were able to get the second tier tilled and fenced in addition to the first section. We are going to leave the third tier empty this season.
Unfortunately all of our seedlings died. I have no idea what happened. They were growing just fine and then pooped out. So we bought some transplants at the local nursery. In the newly tilled and fenced upper tier, we planted two Roma tomato plants, an early girl tomato, a cherry tomato and two genovese basil plants.
The lettuce and radishes we planted several weeks ago are finally getting going. The first planting looks great and I think it will only be another week or two before we start harvesting.
I also planted a short row of bush beans about 10 days ago and they are starting to come up now. I’ll do another planting late this week.
It’s so nice to look out the window and see plants growing in the garden. Fingers crossed that they actually yield something this year. I’m trying not to get my hopes up too much just in case.
