It's been a week

My garden :( We paid good money to have a nice farmer from Woodland come down with his tractor to till the ground. And then it started to rain, in fact it was raining when he came to till. It didn't stop raining until about a week ago. Weeds love rain.. (I think that is a sunflower)

Last night we finally made the commitment and dug out little spaces in the weed choked ground and planted a baby garden. I had tilled a separate pumpkin patch. I love to grow pumpkins and I had grand plans for 9 or so plants of various varieties but the "pumpkin patch" is now a lawn so I have reduced my dreams of being a pumpkin farmer to two pumpkin plants at this time...

5 Tomatoes, various peppers, basil and rosemary and two pumpkin plants.

Last year there were potatoes, celery, onions, beans, peas, zucchini, cantaloupe, carrots, tomatillos, sunflowers, dahlias....sign...

I did find a plant that already had a baby tomato! I am so excited over this baby tomato! I will be nurturing and monitoring this guys progress

My trellis. I have been waiting for years for it to have a thick canopy. I love this!

Raspberries. Almost ready!

For Mother's Day my boys bought me 4 beautiful roses and then built me a lovely garden box. They are doing nicely :)

I took the plunge and planted a baby garden. I call it a baby garden because it takes up about a fourth of the space we originally tilled.
It feels so good to be out there in the mornings in the dirt. I really enjoy starting my day that way. The boys stay far away from me in fear that I will recruit them, so it is a peaceful time...

We've been home a week.

Last week I wrote that I knew they wouldn't call when they said they'd call. So I can say "I told you so" but it still annoys me.

It would seem that they won't be offering a job after all. But we have thought that before. We have waited for a call and then stopped waiting and then BAM they called.

It would be annoying/frustrating/relief, if after all the emotional drama of the past few months (this began mid March!) they didn't even offer the job to Jeff.

But it's silly to live life on hold. For my sanity I need to live. I need a garden to play in. I need to enjoy my friends and family and I need to start my mornings on my porch swing with a hot cup of chai.

I don't need laundry :(

  1. I can see that you've made a tremendous amount of progress emotionally since this all started. Hopefully you'll be able to look back on this time and be thankful for it :)
