The Garden is LEAPING!

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

I am absolutely amazed at how well the garden is doing this year. I have no idea what the difference is, but many of my plants are much healthier and growing much more vigorously than they did last year. We put the garden in a little later last year, but the plants just never seemed to really be healthy. It seemed like they just couldn't get a good strong foothold (except for the squash that is...). I don't know if it's the aging of the manure in the soil or what (although it was safely old enough last year), but I'm gonna have to start freezing already!

I've posted pics of the garden along with the most recent harvests from the zucchini, squash, and salad bed (my spinach are doing well too!!! yeah!!!!!!).


It's a BOY!

Friday, June 19, 2009

Well, I'm gonna post this on my blogspot blog but many of you may know this already, but I got a little bit o' bad news recently. They've put me on hospital monitoring twice a week & am under restrictions... nothing serious, but a bit of a bummer. THE GOOD NEWS IS, I have ultrasounds quite frequently now due to all this and.... the last ultrasound showed it clear as a bell... It's a boy! Finally, we know what we're having. And yes, Courtney agrees the nursery should be in camoflage. How cute! And yes again, Courtney is absolutely giddy.
