No pictures, but...

...we had a great weekend. Matt got to go up north for Andy's bachelor party. Good times were had there. I got to hang out with my little sister at home. We went to pick up her wedding dress, which is stunning. I picked out my dress or being her matron of honor. She is pretty cool for letting us pick out our own. Here is a link to the dress I chose. We will all be in wine with navy trim. It will be very pretty. Oh, and Tommy went on a pony ride at Gee Farms. I brought the camera, but no memory card, so, BUMMER. No pictures of the ordeal. He actually was hanging on by the end of it, and loving it. Oh, well, we will get pictures next time. Also, I planted some veggies. Not including the cost of two tomato cages ($8.00) the whole garden cost me $4.00. Heather helped me dig out the spot and prepare the soil. I went around the forested area on our lot and picked up enough sizable rocks to create a border. And I planted 4 tomato plants, 4 cherry tomato plants, 3 mounds of cucumbers, 10ish yellow onions, 3 potatoes, and 4 yellow pepper plants, and 4 jalapeƱo plants. I am very excited to see how things go. Any tips on keeping the bunnies away? We have mutant bunnies in our neighborhood. I was talking to the neighbor yesterday, and she said that she has never seen rabbits as large as we have. Well, that is about it. I promise to have Tommy pictures soon.

Kate...the dress is stunning. It was so nice to talk to you and Heddie yesterday. We need to do that more often. I miss you guys. I wish you could both come up...even for a night...just for fun. We could have a bonfire and adult beverages. Seriously...we are in the same state and are lucky to see each other annually. We need to work on that.

Uh, love the dress and very appreciative of the processing talk yesterday! I'm still waiting for the response so we'll see. :)

The green mom link is cool, thanks for sharing. My goal is to sustain from the veggies we already have growing plus the ones we will add to the box for entire grow season. That will make up for the cost of the box and then next summer the only cost to cover wil be that odf the seeds....pennies!
