Our first attempt at gardening has so far proven to be successful and surprisingly satisfying. I had no idea that I would get so excited to watch our little fruit and vegetable babies grow. So far, so good. Today we even had our first harvest!
Look what we’re having with dinner tonight…fresh baby greens!!
We may get a few strawberries from our patch this year. That would be an unexpected surprise.
The snap peas are growing like crazy as is the brocolli.
I think we’re getting a little confident in our gardening as we’re considering taking things to the next level. With chickens. Seriously. It’s legal to have them in the city and we eat so many eggs, it only makes sense. But, then, I feel like a crazy lady for even considering it. We’ll see.
We’ve also been busy painting the house. By “we” I mean, mainly J. He sprayed the main house and shutters/door. I’ll be tackling the gutters and trim today and tomorrow. The shutters are really not teal like they look in this picture. They dry much darker.
Finally, we saw this sweet family crossing the street and moving into the neighbor’s yard after our early morning walk yesterday.
Sweet Jack asked me to print the picture so he could show his friends at school yesterday. Tomorrow, by the way, is his last day of pre-k. How did that happen?!
