Planting Party Next April! Save the Date!

I'm so sorry that I haven't kept up very well in the last month. My computer has a virus so at the moment I have lots of pictures to put up, but I haven't figured out how to do it from my mom's computer yet. Maybe today. Yep, I figured it out, more pics below. Enjoy!

Next April as you all know I will be having a baby, well it is also the month to plant the garden. Actually 1 week after the baby is due we need to plant the garden. Either I will be big as a house or I will have a newborn so I thought we could have a planting party, because I will need all the help I can get. So, tentatively we are planning the 4th Saturday in April, which is April 22nd to have the party. It will be filled with planting seeds and plants already started inside and we will have a big BBQ with tri-tip, chicken, and possibly Roger's famous baby back ribs. We will make a day of it. So, save the date! It will be lots of fun! Anyone coming from out of town is welcome to stay the night if they need to.

No worries the garden will be all charted and labeled so you will know exactly where the plants or seeds will go. Hopefully since it's after tax day everyone will be done with those. Haha! It will be funny if our child is born on tax day, well atleast it won't forget. ; )


Here are my festive pumpkins from the garden! Aren't they cute?

Butternut Squash!

You think we have enough butternut squash?! If anybody wants some let us know, we have lots! This is only 2/3 rds of them. Haha! They save well too so you can store them for a long time before you use them.

Which one is real and which is stuffed? ; )

I figured out how to download pics from my mom's computer. Yeah!

My mom's hollyhocks finally came up! I think we planted them a little late. Oh well, atleast one of the ten or so plants bloomed. So pretty!


Here's my boy Tobias! He is getting a little stinky, but only if you stand really close to him. He bred all our girls last month. No one came back into heat so I guess everyone will be due in a two week span the end of February into early March. Were going to have a lot of kids running around! Yeah, they are so cute!

Minna girl. I guess we didn't shear her face as close as her body, she's getting that chipmunk look.

Shaggy Krystal! She really needs to be sheared, she can't even see with all those curls in her face. It just needs to stop raining for me to do it.


Maddie looking cute! She's getting to be a big girl!
