Spring is (almost) Here

Jeremy is once again getting carried away with the garden, adding yet another 'wing'. With this economy, next year our victory garden may turn into a full fledged farm. Do you think our homeowners has a limit on cows and chicken in the yard?

So what started as our whole garden area 3 years ago is now strictly dedicated to tomatoes. Last year Jer planted 4 grapevines on the side of the house and that's also where we have onions, shallots and garlic (which are sprouting in abundance already!). The new wing will apparently house zuccinni, squash, a pumkin, herbs and some sunflowers.

I'm trying to not be overwhelmed by the addition of more live things to care for around here, but Jeremy promises me that he'll continue his role as chief groundskeeper. Actually I've mostly taken over his role as executive chef so that seems fair. He's now more like culinary consulant.

Anyway, today was a beautiful day and Jer got outside to lay down some newspapers and dirt in the new wing. Tessa was of course extremely helpful. No doubt the girl likes to get dirty, and it was just so nice to finally be outside!

Look closely, that's a dirt covered snot bubble....

What's a garden?
