Checking In

Don't laugh...This is the neighbors fence. This is just one pile. We have many piles. Many, Many, Many piles, of panels to take apart. We will use the wood for a wood shop later this year. 

Deck is coming along. NOT! Although someone has four days off real soon. I'm hoping he will get it all leveled and framed out so we can just wait for the top of the deck? Got a bit behind because we apparently mis-counted beams. So instead of buying metal supports and screws, I had to buy two more beams this week. I can't wait to see the 30 foot deck in place. Exciting. 

I am finding Cole is one of the earliest tomatoes. Cole has lots of little tomatoes. So loving it. Although I seem to find new tomatoes daily. Shocking considering I have more then 500 tomatoes?

Peppers are going crazy. Kinda shocking because they love heat. But we are running hotter then normal this summer so it's a good year to grow peppers? This is a sweet pepper. 

Lots going on here as normal. A lot of watering. I find that I am watering front and back and it takes about 12 hours a day. Insane. Makes it hard to get away even for an hour or so. Although snuck out Monday and was able to get more stakes. So we will be out back staking this weekend. Only the ones that need it, I do like letting them grow free willy, but they have to grow straight up, If they are going wild or need staking I will stake.
Cole is nearly riding a bike. Dad lets go a lot. but he is freaking out about crashing. Although he can put his feet down and touch so IDK. Hoping next them he just goes?

Weekly Update

Trying to sneak in a quick blog post, because my day will be exploding tomorrow and who knows when I will get another break?
All 500 plus tomatoes are planted. This guy Matts Wild was the last baby to go into the ground. It has been a wild ride getting them all into the ground. So far I have only lost one. But they are growing like crazy. 

Roses are going like crazy now. This is Mr. Lincoln

This is Henry Fonda

We built this. A 14 foot mega flower bed for Tucker. 

We bought this, isn't it the prettiest thing ever. 

Just a crazy week, as we are trying hard to finish up school. Although doesn't seem like it will ever end? Like tomorrow, we will be taking down a neighbors fence and taking the wood we want. We only have the morning to get the wood, before the rest is carried away and burned. Neighbor has a lot going on so I will be back and fourth helping here and there as she has to work.
Spending tons of time in the garden. Never ending loads of work out there.
