Pumpkins X2

So sometimes you have to carve pumpkins twice for Halloween and sometimes it might be because mommy made a mistake and forgot some basic laws of nature….sometimes. Our first pumpkin carving attempt was on the 19th. We had been hiking that day and then decided to make it a family fun night. We had plenty…

Day On The Farm

On Tuesday Paxton and Coppélia’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…

Fall 2017

We’ve had a fun Fall. The weather has been overall good…as I type this it is cold and windy and semi-snowy outside today, but all in all we have had a really nice fall. We have taken full advantage of it as well with a trip to the pumpkin patch, jumping in the leaves, and…

Garden 2016

So this is only a few weeks late because life just happens like that sometimes and phone calls come and paperwork happens and things just get crazy. All that said, we did put our garden in a few weeks ago. And I’ll confess now…I did not start a single plant from seed indoors. I always…

Garden

So it’s been a few too many weeks since I last updated about the garden. Oops, summer does that to me. Weeks go by, we are busy and having fun and playing and I forget to blog. A lot. But alas, my garden has not forgotten to grow. Except for the broccoli that were eaten…

Garden is In!….And Possibly Drowning

So I didn’t quite make my “in by Mother’s Day” rule for getting my garden it. Because it was snowing. On May 10th. Snowing. I was suppose to run my Mom’s Day race that AM and get my garden planted that afternoon. But it was snowing. So the race got cancelled and I didn’t plant…

Gardening 101 Week 24

There’s a vine invasion going on at my house. The cantaloupe (which I didn’t plant by the way, the ones I planted all died….) as well as the watermelon (also didn’t plant those) and the pumpkins (I DID plant those) have all taken over their areas and are quickly spreading to new spots. I have…

Gardening 101 Week 21

We have our first ripe tomatoes. Only 3 so far, but a bunch that are ready to ripen this week. I am getting excited about making salsa and pasta sauce. I’m not so sure my husband is ready to spend out evenings cutting and dicing. I keep reminding him that it is good time together….

Gardening 101 Week 20

I have beans! I saw a few small ones early this week and then was checking everything out this weekend and lifted up some leaves and found some full size beans! And more then just a few. I’m already looking forward to some fresh green beans this week for dinner.  And my zucchini is nuts….

Gardening 101 Week 17

It’s beginning to get very HOT here. However tomatoes really thrive and take off a lot when it’s hot so I guess all the heat is a good thing, although I’m much more a 70s kind of girl then a 90s.   Speaking of tomatoes, I have a few small ones set on! Yeah, not too…
