A garden update!

I am so thrilled that spring is here and that it is gardening time once again. I love this time of year! Here is what's on the line up for this year:
  • Yellow squash
  • Zucchini
  • Sugar snap peas (so excited for these!)
  • Spinach and lettuce
  • Herbs (Basil, chives, oregano, parsley, chives, thyme)
  • Green beans
  • Cantaloupe
  • Watermelon
  • Strawberries
  • Raspberries (although they won't produce for a couple of years.. and I am so grateful that we got all of the plant as transplants from my wonderful mil)
  • Tomatoes
  • Corn (which will be growing along the back fence.. I think it will look really pretty)

See all the gladiolus growing along the house?! Won't they be lovely?
And Stacey.. look at all those chives.. they are calling your name!

Here is something I am really excited about.. the clothesline! Jeremiah put it up for me and I am so thrilled to be able to hang the cloth diapers out to dry.
Oh! And the PVC pipe.. lovely though it is.. will soon be covered by dozens of sunflowers!

Coming up next.. the finished nursery and my rather large belly at 29 weeks! I sure hope this little sweetie isn't as late as Sarah and Moses!

There is something so charming and homey about clothes drying on the line. :) Especially diaper fluff. It always gives me a sense of satisfaction.
