Do you know what this is??

What's damp and brown with a little bit of green mixed in???

Well, if you said a rock out of someone's nose, you've been reading my blog too much lately!!

If you said trays full of seedlings, you've been peeking in my kitchen!

Last year we bought plant starts from Home Depot and Wal Mart.

This year we're going to try starting our own at home.

Most of them are up now and growing. 
We've got tomatoes, onions, peppers, cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower.

We'll see if we have any luck.

If not, I can always head back to Home Depot for starters that someone smarter than me managed to grow.


Last weekend we went to the farm on Saturday.

While the kids played inside, David and I went out in the rain and pruned all of the fruit trees.  It didn't take as long as I thought it would, and I think they look a lot more 'fruit tree-ish' now.  I figure even if we do it wrong, it has to be an improvement over what they looked like last year.


For those who have appreciated the Rock-up-the-nose saga, you'll appreciate this little tidbit too.

David was repairing the sink in our half bath last week.  When he pulled the drain out of the pedestal sink, he found eight quarters lying inside the drain.

It seems that a nose isn't the only small opening Grant has been jamming things into.
He confessed to putting the quarters in the overflow opening in the sink bowl.
He even knew exactly many quarters he had put there.

I think I need a vacation.
