May & June 2013

 Have been really busy the past couple months.
We had grass to start mowing and a garden to till and plant.
And trying to get it done between rains,
 On our 2 days off from work didn't always work out very well. 
Plus I was a little down in May missing my Mom & grandmother.
So I told them Happy Birthday in Heaven on their B-Day and then on mine.
I love being born in their birth month. 

Our garden isn't doing so good this year with all the rain.
And we have a critter having snacks on few things,
 my lime a beans, onions and corn.
Not shore if it is the crows, rabbits or deer or maybe even a few chipmunks.
I have been replanting a few things that have been ate down to the ground.
It is hard growing a garden when you work and have only a hour each morning to care for it and then 1/2 days on your day off. 

I try to do the house work at night to keep up with it, but some times there just don't seem to be enough hours in a day to get it done.

Thought I'd post some of the photos I've took to share with you my friends.

 Also got a nice bottle of wine & a Galaxy Tab 2 for my B-day.
So there has been lots to keep busy with.


  1. very nice update, i love all the pictures...Dum Dum is pretty handsome!

  2. I hate you are having such a time with your garden. Those sneaky critters are frustrating. Your bell peppers are way further along than ours though! Ours are just setting fruit. What kind of rooster is Dum Dum? He's very handsome! Your yard is so pretty and green. It's always scary when the Shenandoah comes out of her banks, isn't it? I hope everyone stayed safe. And I hope you are having a wonderful summer! XXXOOO

  3. Thanks Kim.
    Penny, only the 1 pepper has any thing right now,the rest are trying. Dum Dum is from 1 of my sex links & 2 Feathers. He is a pretty good boy just a little scared of stuff and me big time. lol Hope you are having a good summer also.
    XXXOOO Love you Ladies

  4. I love your pics!I hope by now your garden is flourishing! I never have time to sit and read anymore, but I took a minute today while my tomatoes are canning ;) I'll try to make more time to read your blog, you're such a sweetheart!
