Here we grow again!

Now that the freakishly cool weather seems to have subsided, it is time for us to start transplanting our seedlings to our 2010 Murray Family Garden. Given the ever-growing likelihood of some major goings on around here this summer, we have scaled back our planting A LOT. We are planting in two 3x6 raised beds and are limiting our veggies to lettuce, carrots, radishes and leeks. (Of course my sunflowers are back, too. I really love my sunflowers.)

Wowza! Has it really been SIX MONTHS???

We met Mari on August 12 and finally came home from Colombia on September 4, 2009. Today we have been home SIX MONTHS. While not without its challenges, this past six months has been remarkably easy -- easier than I expected, actually -- and so much fun. I am so looking forward to the next six sixty six hundred...oh lets just say forever!!!
