Let’s get this summer started June 25, 2009

This is usually the kind of day that happens right before we all get the flu

So I invite you to enjoy it with us

This week my dad and Crystal have been visiting from out of state. I’ve given them three days to fawn over the baby and wrestle with the big kids.

Now it’s time to work

We had to come up with an alternate plan after our beds were mistakenly sprayed with pesticide. We decided to do some square foot gardening in lieu of soil amending. We were able to find all the supplies at Orange County Farm Supply where we met some fellow gardeners who gave us an amazing gynormous onion.

Anyone coming over for some chips y salsa-de-Brian?

My dad lugged all the soilish stuff to the back where we will mix it all together in the beds, and now they’ve headed off to Home Depot for some drip lines.

True to their personalities, Amaiah has taken her gardening gloves and headed off to HD with the boys, while Wyatt has opted for Monopoly inside with Grandma C.

I actually remembered to put some sun tea out while it was daytime.

Shivohn is sleeping

Not in my arms!!!!
