Hi everyone!  It has been a while since I posted pictures of what it looks like here in yard.  Today we worked on the gardens.  Both gardens are planted.  I am so happy.  It has been a wet, cold spring here making it hard to get the gardens planted.

This one is just beans and corn.

Remember when I said Hubby was working on making a raised bed.  Well, here it is and it is doing very well I think.  We made another one today and planted herb seeds in it and another row of carrots.  I think I like this raised bed gardening.  Hoeing is so hard on my back.

Our rhubarb is doing nicely this year.  I think it is time for some rhubarb dumplings, strawberry rhubarb jam, rhubarb pie,…….!!

A fern and hen and chicks.  Thanks for the ferns, Jess!  These hen and chicks belonged first to my grandmother, then to my mom and now to me.  I love things like that.  I found the metal thing up in the field above our home.  I have no idea what it originally was but I think it makes a great container for them.

Our strawberries survived the winter and are blooming!  Some already have small strawberries on them.

Growing Up

100_3236

This boy has definitely grown.  I’m not sure based on the past year if he’ll ever grown up but he has certainly grown.  He is a very playful pup and has brought lots of love into our house.  (Lots of other things too-but we won’t go into that.)  Things have been busy around here for the last couple of days.  Saturday I went grocery shopping while Hubby worked on clearing out some stuff from his wood working building.  Sunday was church.  Then early Monday morning we decided to make a trip to Grundy to see George’s Mom and Dad.  We didn’t get back home until a little after 10:00 that night.  Long day.  Yesterday was piano and I attempted to move that mountain of laundry that had built up.  We had to dry everything inside.  It was very overcast, chilly and windy.  Today promises to be better.  The sun is shining already.  Hopefully we can use the clothesline today.  We have 5 baby geese on the pond.  Big excitement.  I hope to get a picture of them today so you all can see them.  Our rhubarb is ready.  I think I will make some strawberry-rhubarb jam.  It’s one of our favorites.  Well, I think my crew is hungry.  I better get some breakfast going.  Take care and God bless.
