Better late than never.
Actually, better late than early, says this fourth time mom.
Christina is now deliberately rolling over. It’s really funny. She figured it out while Julie and I were sitting on my bed watching a movie tonight. (My part-time job lately is keeping Julie distracted so she doesn’t remember that she is about 3 1/2 weeks overdue.) Anyway, when Christina got tired of lifting her head and craning it around to try to watch the movie, she started lifting up her little bum instead, and with a little twist and wriggle, was over on her back. I turned her back over a few times and she did it deliberately again, this time looking mighty pleased with herself. I am going to have to get a photo of her smug face, if she will repeat the performance for me tomorrow.
Might I Have A Bit Of Earth?
Dave and I are making a square foot garden this spring/summer. We are REALLY excited about it!! So far, Dave has done the work – building the box, buying the soil, mixing it and putting it all together. He even designed a better (hinged) cage, to keep out the vermin, and it has a handle on it for me to open and close it easily (rather than trying to lift it off over the tops of the growing plants and then replace it). Today, Julie & I went to the local plant nursery and bought seeds for spinach, swiss chard, radishes, bell peppers (red and green), cucumbers, snow peas, jalapeno peppers, and basil. Tomorrow we shall plant!! I hope it’s as easy as Mel makes it out to be. I want another box with a trellis (maybe just a 2×2 box rather than a 4×4) so we can have tomatoes, too. Ah, garden fresh tomatoes. There is nothing like them. I’m so happy we found this square foot gardening method because it totally bypasses your existing landscape/soil. I thought I was going to have to wait until we had a different property or money to landscape, to be able to grow a garden, but turns out we can do it right away. Here are some photos.
