I haven't blogged in such a long time... We have been busy!
We welcomed another grandchild into the world yesterday. He weighed in at a hefty 9 pounds and 12 ounces! So far his mommy and daddy have not decided on a name, but we expect to hear soon!
We now have an orchard! Hubby planted two apple trees, two pear trees, and three peach trees! I am so excited! Can you tell!?
Our gardens are planted and I am...literally...watching them grow.
In the pictures below, you will see garlic which was planted last fall, and successfully sprouted this spring.
The little garden on the table has been planted by hubby. It is our kitchen garden.
In the the other brick garden there are marigolds and poppies visible, but hidden behind are carrots...and...Glass Gem corn! This corn is just too pretty to eat, but its kernels can be popped, or ground for flour.
The two largest gardens have been planted with kale, celery, strawberries, peppers, tomatoes, squash, melons, and the "world's biggest pumpkin!"
So...my garden and my family have been my priority. I still visit your blogs, and will blog as often as time allows...but I confess, I just need some time to get things done.
Will hopefully be back soon...but until then...take care!
