Gallivanting in my garden

I am loving this spring — the weather has been amazing and we are enjoying it tremendously!

It’s that time of year again when my nails are always caked in dirt from playing in my gardennnnnnn. I spent days in April enlarging my garden, like I do every year. I have two main areas that I plant in every year, plus my berries! This year, I expanded both of my beds and it didn’t take long to fill the extra space — I already don’t know how I got by without it last year. Annnnnd, no surprise, I already have plans to make next years larger, too. I have a real problem!

This year, I planted tomatoes, eggplant, squash, zucchini, lettuce, spinach, potatoes (sweet, white & blue), onions, peppers (bell & spicy), cantaloupe, watermelon and a few more strawberry plants. I’m probably forgetting a few things, too!

Brian and I also lined all of the beds with new landscape timbers and mulched the berry beds. It’s been a lot of work, but so worth it.

Now I just have to be patient and wait for everything to grow. That’s the hard part of gardening — patience!

In other news, I chopped off all of my hair 🙂

It’s a different sort of before & after for my blog, but here ya go!



And 10-inches later….



I’m donating my long locks to Pantene Beautiful Lengths. My new hair feels so much better — and just in time for the warm weather!


Potato, tomato, mmmmm.

Today I harvested potatoes from my garden!! It was so fun to dig up each little spud. Between my potatoes and my recent harvest of tomatoes, we had more fresh food than we could eat (especially since I stocked up on a ton of fresh goodies from the store, too). I gave my neighbors some taters and maters so nothing would go to waste.

Other than gardening, I’m starting to buy stuff for our party. We figured out our booze situation and food situation, so that’s good. I tried to find citronella candles at Target tonight, but no luck. Guess I waited too long. I’ll have to check Home depot or Lowes. I did, however, finally buy grill tools! Score.

I’m also working on a project at work that I’ll hopefully be blogging about soon. I have been working on redesigning our conference room, and it should all be coming together soon! I can’t wait to show you guys — it’s going to look great!
