We are in Decatur today and a big chunk of tomorrow visiting my parents.  I will try to get pics of my parents yard.  We showed Dad how to make rain-barrels and I've encouraged Mom on gardening.  All in all its looking really nice and their saving money with the barrels. I may drag William out around town so I can catch up on things here.

Garden May 2010

Before the rainstorm chased us out of the garden we did get some pictures, including the grassy raised beds :( But its coming along, slowly but surely. Warning its pic intensive

That is the view from the compost pile looking toward the back of the house

The first bloom in the garden!!

There are more pictures but I have to resize them and what not.  I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe holiday weekend
Today I am officially 32 years old.

So it cost my coworker $50 bucks for her supplies and took about 1.5 hours to put in a 4x4 square foot garden!       I am very happy for her as she can now plant seedlings I took over to her and split the direct sow seeds that we had purchased together.  Put there will be no planting for me :(  All we have had is rain, rain and more rain.  Not as bad as Tennessee or Kentucky mind you but enough that it is a big ol' muddy mess in the back yard. ::sigh::

Yesterday I received a package from the folks over at Pile O'Melays that had the most fantastic smelling soap!! My husband was wonderful enough to not open it but he danced it in front of me and confessed to sniffing it a LOT. Any way you can share the secret recipe??

So it's only 7:30p and Im restless, William is on the computer and Helen has the kitchen table occupied cutting out patterns for garb clothes. I need to find something to do :(
