Garden and Bees…

My little garden is coming along. I’ve got some tomatoes set on, and finally the onions that I planted by seed are starting to sprout, the ones that were bulbs look great. We had a ton of lettuce and are eating lots of fresh salads right now. My corn is sprouting and growing great. My…

Garden Update

My garden is slowly coming to life. I’ve got little lettuce sprouts and some scatter spinach and kale sprouts poking their heads through the soil. My neighbors will be excited to know that I’ve planted 2 rows of kale because I’m pretty sure I’m invited to neighborhood functions solely based on the kale chips I…

Garden Planting 2020

On Saturday we got our garden planted. I came up with a good plan this year and the kids were a huge help. I would have one kid come and help with each row and then switch out, they all like to plant but to keep the chaos in check this definitely worked better than…

The Ladies Are Home…

On Sunday I got my bees. Or I should say, Queen Adelaide and her girls arrived and are settled into their new home. I named her Adelaide because it means “of royal descent”. I have been reading about it and prepping for the past couple of years so I was super excited Sunday morning and…

Putting in the Garden

And we have a garden. Or at least a very large spot now to plant things in. 3 years ago when we moved in there was a small area with a couple raised beds that for that year and the next I made do. Last year because there was just way too much on my…

Sprouts and Blooms!

I’m starting to have a couple early sprouts. My broccoli and brussel sprouts have poked through the dirt and I have tomatillos and cherry tomatoes starting. And then I have a couple daffodils starting to blood as well. All of these are adding some brightness and color to these days which all need a little.

Starting the Garden 2020

Earlier this week we started our indoor seeds for our new garden this year. I had plenty of help. And actually everyone is at the age where it was actually help. Everyone got 2 seed starter trays that they filled up with dirt and then they would come to me one by one and pick…

Garden 2019…

So I said I wasn’t going to do a garden this year but I might have changed my mind. I love to garden but with 5 kiddos and life I have started the past two years with good intentions only to end with dried up dead plants and very healthy weeds. I had also decided…

Planting Flowers….

So no lie here, I love spring. I love the grass turning green and flowers starting to poke through the ground and bloom. Tulips, Daffodils and Hyacinths just make me smile. I planted a few tulips and hyacinths last year right off our front porch and I noticed a couple of the hyacinths poking through…

Day On The Farm

On Tuesday Paxton and CoppĂ©lia’s preschool class had a field trip to Miller Farms. The teacher said the whole family could join and come along so we made a day out of it. When Caedmon heard that we were going to go to a farm and get a pumpkin he insisted that Grandpa join us…
