Happy Earth Day!!
The past three days have been just lovely here in the Garden State
and Princess and I have been out enjoying it! Friday found us
playing with friends at a birthday party for one of her very good
friends (and mine).It was so nice to go to a child's party that was
so down to earth and truly family friendly. So often today they are
3 ring circuses that even the children can't really enjoy for all the stress!
(Now picture me jumping off my soap box)
Saturday was just about perfect here.Farmer Dad planted the seedlings
that were ready for our little garden plot, mostly the chards,chois,mustard greens and lettuces.
Princess and I read and played on her swing set and watched him start seeds for tomatoes.
32 varieties so far.For those of you who don't know us personally, Heirloom Tomatoes are
a family passion around here! Princess and I spent a great deal of time discussing which outside
play things we will sell to help finance and make room for her Butterfly Garden.She has outgrown many
of them.Today we planted a few annuals and some strawberries in our strawberry pots and did just a bit
of weeding. In honor of Earth Day we cleaned out the birdbaths and feeders and refilled them.
Our cherry and plum trees are finally blooming, our pear is at it's peak already! It really feels like spring here.
