Weekend roundup

The weekend just flew by . We had such nice weather for working in the garden so that's just what I did . It was sunny and not too warm (18 -20 degrees C ) , which for me is perfect for that . I like it just a tad warmer for getting in the pool .

My perennial beds have been neglected in the last couple of years . Life and the weather not cooperating at the right time just always seemed to get in the way. This year Mike is taking next week off so that we can try and get the yard and perennial beds in better shape . That will involve a lot of digging and transplanting and dividing of overgrown perennials .

This year we're going to plant a few tomato plants in a sunny location near the house . We're hoping to expand that next year to include some green beans , cucumbers and salad . We've got a lot of other things going on this summer , especially the downstairs bathroom renovations , so we didn't want to bite off more than we could chew . I'm keeping fingers crossed that the weather cooperates next week . It's supposedly going to rain most of this week , which is fine by me so that next week should be sunny . It can't rain for 2 weeks straight can it ?

Not much knitting going on here , but that will probably change with the rainy weather. I dug out the socks that have been hibernating for almost 2 years and will work on them . I also have that little green baby sweater that really needs to get done . There's a baby boom going on around here this year . Chantal's cousin and his wife are expecting twins for sometime in early November . I'm really happy for her , they've been trying for two years . She is such a sweetie and will make a great mom . Nice for Jessey to because they also live close by , 2 houses over .

Speaking of the little man ...

This is him yesterday afternoon playing in his exersaucer . My heart just about bursts whenever I get to spend time with him .
I have so much fun . I love him to pieces !

Sorry but I just couldn't end this post with absolutely no photos . Off to more gardening and then cut the grass

How cute is he? Great pic!
Have fun gardening. It's a bit too early here to plant anything but we have mucked out the dead stuff and my rhubarb is coming along!

He is just TOO CUTE! What a smile! Looks like he either loves the exersaucer, having his picture taken, or both.

I had seeds planted in my garden already last year this time. I had radishes coming up the first week of May. I am making my garden bigger this year, right now it's covered with canvas to help kill the grass. I don't have a tiller, so it's slow going! I may see if I can rent one for a couple of hours, it would be a lot easier on me and faster, too.

I don't have a veggie garden but I do have some herbs. I want to expand on them, buy more different kinds. I had tomatoes in pots though, they just taste so much better. Your Jessie is just too adorable. When I saw the picture, I just went "Awwwweeee"! :o)
