My next post should be whoops! I keep hitting the wrong button and off goes the post before I write anything- brain and hands are having a hard time talking to one another.
What I was meaning to say was....... we are putting in some raised beds for vegetables.
I am very excited to have a place to raise some food again. It has been very strange to have no garden the past 3 summers.
What! No tomatoes! that is just a sin!

tomatoes, what would life be without

Which is some what true- I did buy homegrown tomatoes the past few summers. Yummy Brandy Wines from our friends- but some times a girl needs all the tomatoes she can eat or can and or freeze. I miss having enough to get me through those winter months.
So yesterday we took the wonderful "cow" dirt we have been hording and throwing compost in for two years and put together two raised beds.
We have enough,it looks like, for two more.
I am planning on what I will plant in them.
I could do one whole bed in tomatoes- that would be fine with me.
I have another bed already filled with lettuce, some herbs and some spinach.
But tonight we have covered the lettuce, herbs and spinach- the blueberries are on their own and we are ready to winter over one more night.
Then I would like some days of warm- not hot- warm spring days- with NO WIND please.
So I can plant in those new beds.
Oh- and we are glazing so don't worry we are working too!
This tree was planted the year our son was born- it is a favorite and it just popped out this week!
PS-I have a new Apple PIE recipe on the cooking blog.
