It's that time of the year.... the weather is warming up...

...And we decided to plant a garden. Luckily the place I work at also has a greenhouse and so I have quite the selection of vegetables to choose from at a discounted price. So far we have planted:

Romaine Lettuce (green and red)
and Onions

We are planning on planting some potatoes and strawberries this year too. It will, hopefully, be quite the garden. Last years was a disappointment because the weather was so cold until May, we couldn't plant things in time. Our hope and prayer this year is that we will have a fruitful garden.

In addition to planting our vegetables and herbs, I also planted some tulip, daffodil, and hyacinth bulbs. They won't flower next year because they were forced in a greenhouse, but they will the following year. I don't care, the foliage is still nice.

And lastly, to complete our little garden we planted some ground moss to grow between the rocks. I think it looks nice... or rather, it will look nice in a year when it fills out more.

And as a nice surprise..... today Quincy received an Easter package from Grammie and Grandpa Loren. He got:

A Sesame street coloring book
Some summer shorts
Hersey's chocolate eggs (which were Quincy's favorite)
A little Curious George
and A smiley hackey sack

He loved all of it... especially the treats and coloring book. Thanks mom and dad. I'm sure we'll get great use out of the coloring book at church and such. Love you guys!

You are off to such a great start! Your garden looks wonderful. It's a far cry from what it looked like when you moved in, for sure. I'm proud of you. It's important to know how to grow things. And I like that Quincy is learning beside you. Altough it may seem like he's just tearing up things and eating rocks, he really IS learning! Good job, Kate & Tyler!
