Gardening and Growing Onions

So far this year, we have been doing well with the vegetables we've already planted.  I usually don't feel very successful (and may still not if our tomato plants dry up with summer) but for now...things are looking up!  However, why is it that I am so good at growing onions under my sink and not so good at growing other vegetables outside in the sunshine???

Baby Due Soon!

I'm 39 weeks pregnant!  When is baby Georgiana going to get here?!  We are sooo excited.  Good thing we already got the garden planted because she's due right in the middle of planting season.  :)

I have been working hard around here to get things ready.  I've been washing baby clothes, organizing the cloth diapers (and trying to figure out how to fold them), etc.  I have our hospital bag packed already and the snacks are in the car!

I think I can hear my belly ticking....  :)

Will this guy be jealous of his new baby sister???

Pretty Eggs

I really like how pretty brown eggs are and sometimes the girls make them extra special.  Like this one...

Our laying hens like to keep life interesting!

Growing Lettuce

I tried to grow lettuce last year but it didn't work out all that well.  This year, I started from seed just to see what would happen.  Check it out!

We have already harvested our first crop.  It tastes yummy!  A few nights ago, we had burgers with homegrown meat, homemade hamburger buns and our very own lettuce.  You just can't beat that!

Growing Beets

I planted some beet seeds in a pot several weeks ago.  I really don't like beets but I'm willing to tough it out because they're good for me.  They have actually grown really well!  I've had to protect them from a hard rain once because I knew they would get beat down but, other than that, they have been a pretty easy vegetable to grow.

I have never grown beets before.  I can't wait until they get big enough to pull up!
