This Weekend Happenings

Since Daddy was home yesterday, we started our weekend "chores" early. Since we have 10 acres to maintain, things can get put on the back burner for a while... as is the case with my garden boxes. This is what we accomplished yesterday...

Can you even tell there are garden boxes in there??

This is after Daddy mowed and used the weed eater... you can actually tell we have a garden! Ahhh, what a difference just that made!

While pulling weeds, we found this little (huge) guy. We let the kids check him out, and then through him back into our pond.

The boxes were weeded and tilled in preparation for the compost.

While me and the kids worked in the garden, Daddy got on the tractor to cut down the pastures. He came upon these pretty flowers, pulled them up and gave them to me to plant in our flower beds.

Speaking of flower beds. Check out my tulips:) Oh and the weeds all around them... I will get to those today!

Rowdy Girl! She is so sweet and finally beginning to calm down and move out of the puppy stage!

Mama Lake said...

Hehe, a little confustion since we call them different things:) She is 5 months old... I was in desprite need to "care" for something when I was 37wks pregnant, so she is what I got! Doesn't she look just like yours??

I love the garden boxes! I have a raised bed made of railroad ties. It makes weeding so much easier. Also, I love all the flower pictures! They are lovely :D
