How Does Your Garden Grow?

It’s that time of year again! Summer’s almost upon us and the garden is starting to be a nice place to hangout. I’ve already been harvesting fresh lettuce from my garden for a month now and am looking forward to other crops ripening throughout the season.

I built some raised beds this year, mainly to keep those darn gophers out of my produce. Most of my crops are coming along quite nice though and I get hungry just looking at them. Corn, pumpkins, beans, potatoes, grapes, sunflowers, tomatoes, lettuce, and a little bit of wheat.

So how are Mother Nature and your own garden shaping up this year? We’re enduring a bit of a drought, but fortunately many of my plants are drought resistant or I’ve made some adjustments to make sure they hold in their water longer. I’m definitely looking forward to having some backyard dinner evenings with my friends and family once the weather warms up.

Back from Paternity Leave

Hey, all. I’ve been a bit MIA of late, mainly because my newborn son arrived a bit earlier than anticipated. But I’m back from paternity leave and getting into the swing of things again.

Mom and baby are doing well, although we’re all a little sleep-deprived, but otherwise enjoying our time together. I’ve got two redheaded boys to look after now, so things are busy, but in a good way. Looking forward to new updates now that I’m back, thanks!
