Gardening Update

Yesterday was a beautiful day for working outside with Jerry.  Today will be just as busy but I will add sunscreen to my list of preparations.  Never even thought of it since it is still March and there was a cool breeze in the morning.  I am pretty much burnt :/ Much better this morning but it was pretty uncomfortable last night.  I know better.  Was just really excited about getting out and doing some planting.  Jerry got everything set up for me to do the window boxes while he tilled my herb beds.

The past two days we (mostly Jerry) have accomplished much.  A few of the tomatoes planted.  All of the bell peppers.  Pole beans and cucumbers planted.  The greenhouse plants set in new pots or in the beds.

The corn/pumpkin patch is ready for topsoil that will be delivered this morning and as soon as Jerry gets it spread he will plant the corn.  Ruby Queen, Early Extra Sweet and Ambrosia.

And as you can see Spring has officially sprung in our little corner of the world.  It just makes you feel like getting out and playing in the dirt. I love the smell of freshly tilled soil.  Yeah, the pollen gets to me. But I do love seeing the porch covered in pots of flowers and herbs,

Happy Mother's Day!

We had our gathering yesterday since I had to take Husband to the airport early this morning.  He has a week long class in Norwich England – lucky dog.  I just wanted to pop in and say hi and show you some of my goodies from Mother’s Day.  Beautiful sunflowers from oldest daughter and her husband:

And this adorable cupcake painting and cupcakes to go on a necklace from Rachel and cards and letters as well…

We framed it and hung it in the kitchen today…and will get chains for my cupcakes!  A good time was had by all…crawfish, salmon for those of us who do not partake of the mudbugs. We had 5 of our 6 kids (and spouses) and our dear friends the Whitakers.

And last but not least the Strawberry Whopper Cake!
