I have been gone a long, long time blogging world. I am so sorry….especially to the three or so of you who read my blog. I have been sick. Sick, sick, sick and tired! (Always wanted to say that!) Anywhoo, I got that virus that is going around and my friend Sarah told me that viruses usually stick around for 10 days, so I’ve had this nastiness for 2 1/2 weeks….either Sarah is wrong (too sweet to be wrong) or I am an overachiever. Let’s go with that.
After watching a very motivating presentation by Debbie at church about raised bed gardening, I forced suggested to the family that we start one and we did early in the Summer.
Well, some stuff actually grew! We got 3 cucumbers, some lettuce, deformed carrots, many grape tomatoes and a cantaloupe! I knew I had it in me! I am soooo not living the life I was meant to. I mean how can you look at those results and not see that I am meant for the county life! Seriously. How much harder could a ranch/farm be? Just bigger, right? Well, here are the pictures of our bounty and I have big plans for next Spring! Anyone know any good recipes for turnips??? (Don’t like ’em, but bet I could grow ’em!) 🙂
This was our one normal looking carrot.
I forgot to take of picture of the cantaloupe whole….ugh!
