FRUIT ASSASSIN FOR SALE!!

SO… I am putting my 3 year old daughter up for sale…no seriously.. my little ‘angel’ picked all of the young peaches off of my peach tree except one and then stood there smiling at me! She thought it was hilarious! I guess the culling lesson went a bit over her head, I mean she is 3 after all πŸ˜‚… I’m still furious πŸ˜²πŸ˜’πŸ˜’ but she’s lucky that she’s cute, maybe I’ll consider keeping her.

The hubs and my 4 year oldΒ sonΒ tilled the soil in my raised bed and added supplements and eggshells. Β I am so grateful for that because I still feel pretty blehhh. They did a great job with my micromanaging of course hehehehe!

They found a rogue tomato plant that must have sprouted from last years seeds, so they moved it to a safe place in the corner and it even has a cute little tomato on it already!

I’ve moved my seedlings outside to get used to the weather. At this time last year it was still freezing and as I write this its 90F!!😰

Once again I am trying my hand at herbs. I think they dislike me and things go awry and they always end up dead. Am I an herb murderer?!? *gasp* I just don’t understand it! I can keep difficult orchid species alive and prospering but IΒ can’t keep basil alive!? BASIL!!! Come on Natasha! Get yourself together for heaven’s sakes!

I hope that the weather is lovely where you are and that you’ll be able to get out and garden soon! What are you planting this year?

Happy Gardening! πŸ™‚ πŸ„πŸ„πŸ„

SPRING TIME FUN!

Just another day playing outside with the kids, findingΒ wish flowers *weed spreaders*, making lizard catchers, picking lemons and making lemonade. Life was good until that humongous grasshopper tried to hitch a ride in my hair! HA!
