The Garden

This weekend was finally a nice sunny weekend and hubby and I planted our garden with help from my mom. We have a strawberry patch, tomatoes, peppers, herb garden, lettuce patch and planted several rows of peas, beans, beets and cucumbers. Also a few potatoes, squash, zuchinni, eggplant and kohl rabi.

My father and hubby spent a few days slaving in the yard to build me two 8 x 8 foot raised garden beds. They hauled multiple loads of dirt to fill them up. I'm so excited to see if everything that we planted will grow.

We even planted three blueberry bushes. Don't know if we'll get much yield off of them but it will be fun to try!

Surprise on The Deck

Yesterday morning my hubby noticed a pile of fluff in the flower planter on our deck. It turned out that it is a rabbit nest. I can't believe that the rabbit climbed up on our deck so close to the house to have her babies in a planter!

The sad part is that one of the babies fell out of the nest and died. I haven't got up the courage to poke around in the nest to see if there are any other babies in it. I'm just going to leave it be and let nature take it's course.
