Hello Everyone

I hope you've all been having a wonderful spring. We've been busy with our garden. I've also had jury duty~which I'm almost through with! And, I've had ALLERGIES! I think this is the worst year I've had with them in a while. I've finally got some medicine that seems to be working. I hope none of you are suffering with them.
Strawberries in a 2x4 bed. I hope to have another one this size if I don't run out of time.

Peppers and a few tomato plants in a 4x4 box.
I also have a 1x8 foot box with six tomato plants in it. I have lettuce, green onions, and carrots planted in other boxes.
We have wire fencing around them temporarily to keep out the cats, dogs, chickens, and rabbits. I think we may be able to keep them on all the time, which will save on losing our produce to the wild kingdom, we hope.

Happy gardening,

Just Checking In~

Hi friends~hope you are all doing well. We have been busy around here. We have one of our garden beds completed and hope to have more done by the end of the week. I also want to start a new herb bed and tear out the old one. Our ground is pretty wet right now, so some things are at a standstill.

My hubby brought home two trailer loads of mulch today~so that will keep us busy for a while!

Well, spring is officially here on the farm. The wild peaches and plums have bloomed, the Dogwoods are starting to bloom and. . .today, Angus, our Labrador/Airedale mix, killed a Water Moccasin! Yikes!! Jackie, our shepherd mix, wanted to help, but we didn't let her get in there and try since Angus was practically stuck in a bunch of brambles while he was killing it. I'd like it to be a better situation for her, so she won't get bit the first time she goes after one.

Hope you are all having a great week!
