So I had to go to the dentist today. I had broken my filling in the tooth that had a root canal... Yuck. So I am sitting in the chair waiting and my chair started rocking and it felt like a big truck was driving by. I wondered what equipment the office was using to create such a ruckus. Then I thought, Oh No! Its an earthquake! Then I was scarred for one second and then is was over. Wow... my second earthquake to feel. And at the Dentist to boot. It is such a crazy feeling. Life feels so totally out of control in those few seconds. OK, I need to go work on dinner... just wanted to share...

The Promised Photos

There are a few things we started as seeds, so those are not pictured yet. The boys really enjoyed this and so did I. One extra thing we found to plant was rhubarb. Yum

Planting my Garden

I am excited once again to get my hands dirty and get some veggies and herbs planted in the garden. The boys and I really enjoy the work of getting the dirt ready and putting in our seeds. This year I am going to try a few new things. A yellow squash, potatoes, romaine lettuce, parsley, chives, thyme, lemon balm and peppermint. As well as my norm... tomato, lettuce, carrots, basil, onions, and our staple, strawberries. I haven't investigated the acidity of my dirt yet. I imagine that would help my plants grow better. Does anyone else have experience with that? Sometimes I get a good crop off things and others don't do very well.

So anyway... I will take photos this afternoon as we plant and let you all know how it goes...

PS... do you like my springy new blog look?
