Garden Update


WOW! It's looking great out there and it's only July 5th. I can tell already that I'm going to have a lot of fruits and veggies on my hands, so I'm gonna let y'all know ahead of time. When you need tomatoes and cucumbers, come to mamma!! ;-)

I'm a little hesitant about the broccoli. I have no idea what it's suppose to do, look like, where it flowers, when to harvest, etc. I'm just going with the flow on that one, just like I did with the brussel sprouts last year. But they never came! YIKES!

I've very much been enjoying my 4-day weekend. WOW! It feels like I haven't done a darn thing, well, I haven't done much. But, I'll have to go back to work tomorrow and get back into the groove. It's not a big deal, 5 hours a day and I'm home by 1:00. I'll make it through the summer on that, no prob!

The family is all doing well, mom (I think) is enjoying her early retirement at the lake. She sent me her garden (tomatoes) pictures this morning, which inspired me to go and photo-document my progress as well. Maybe as a way of gloating, I don't know!! ;-) At the end of June Chip was privileged about to meet some of my family from California. They are a riot so I'm glad that Chip was able to experience that. It was a little piece of my family that is similar to his. They talk loud and a lot!!

Adam and Nancy are wrapping up their beautiful kitchen project. I can't believe it's the same room. It looks absolutely stunning and I'm so happy they completed it in time for them to be able to enjoy it. There's no point in saving a project like that for when you have to move out of the house...

My new nephew Jack is cuter than ever. I just love when Katie and Adam put pics of him on Facebook. I'm going to have to make a sincere effort of getting to Cold Spring more often in order to see the little guy. He's just too cute to pass up. We also have some friends in Sartell that I have been meaning to get a hold of...I need to put that on my to-do list or it won't get done. I'd love to see their new(ish) babies too!

I'm sure there's a project waiting for me...
