Just an Update.

haven't been on here in a dogs age so I thought I'd let you know what's going on around here :)

I planted some seeds (tomato, thyme, basil, various flowers...etc) back in February and they were coming along quite nicely, until I decided to put them into my greenhouse, and BAM the frost hit, and there they were the next morning, limp as linguine, hanging over their pots. I shed some tears, then threw them in the manure pile, like any other farmers wife would do.

We've all come down with a super cold that has the kids and the hubs and I hacking like donkeys. It attacks the lungs, and it's been quite....productive. (barf-o-rama on the mucous, keep a kleenex within 2 feet of Ashlyn at all times, or you'll be covered....that's all I have to say about that.)

I started feeling a bit better yesterday and was back into the gardens, and made a chicken dinner, blueberry muffins, blueberry cake, and chicken soup in hopes of kicking this cold...as they say, stuff the cold....

Eden is doing well, caught a bit of the sniffles with the rest of us, but it seems to have hit her the least, Thank you Lord. She had a bit of a dilemma last week where she went 10 days without a bowel movement .... I've never wished to see poop as much as I did last week. The Dr said to try a suppository and .... then I began wishing to not see poop... he, he, suppositories work, and that's all I have to say about that.

Sorry about the bodily functions/fluids posted here today, particularly if you're just sitting down for a snack of say some peanut butter or squeeze cheese....

I'm getting 11 stumps removed of the property and I can't wait to re-claim the land and plant some grass seed. There's another wedding here on the farm this summer, Dwight's sister Patti will be wed on the 28th of June. Thus I'm trying to get things looking presentable for the big day. Seedums, hostas, and peonies have been transplanted and I'm now onto edging. Yippee. No really I enjoy getting out there and getting dirty, particularly when Eden is sleeping soundly in her stroller and the other 2 are in the dirt heap, filling and dumping their wheel barrow. Loads of fun for all!

Anyway, that's it for now, my apologies for the randomness, Hope you're all doing well!!

We have had very cold temps in the evening here as well, and I was really worried, as I planted strawberry plants this yr, but other than a few leaves, they seem to be okay so far- praying that the temps warm soon though!

We also have had sickness and severe allergy issues this yr- I'm reading your update and thinking- wow, sounds like things are pretty parallel right now between your life and mine!

It was great to hear from you :)
