Kyla I hope your little guy is feeling better today! I HATE stomach bugs!
There was a debate about planting gardens in your front yard? I must have missed it. I wish i had been there for it though!
We are thinking about putting raised beds in front of our house, but you know, our yard doesn't look much like a traditional yard. Our house is really set in the middle of a big field, we don't keep the entire thing as mowed grass anyway. And now while they are set off to the right of our house, you can see the pigs from the front too. And there are no neighbors really anyway, so no one to be displeased with our choice
I would definitely plant a garden in front of my house if it was the only feasible option i had for growing my own food!
A pesticide resistant nightmare with a billion seeds. Not that I'd nuke it with poison, but it's not even an option. I'd marvel at it's fortitude if it wasn't in my garden. Truly it was a hopeless battle. Rabbits are around here but, really it's the deer. I have caught the buggers up on my front porch on their hind legs - looking like kangaroos, eating the tomatoes from the topsy-turvy pot.
Kyla how is Connor?
I just spent an hour working ferociously in my garden and yard ~ It is 80 here after I think we had snow just two weeks ago? Psycho weather. I'm filthy and have scratched up arms and filthy hands ~ awesome timing for my first gel manicure on friday before Hawaii ;/. We are doubling our garden this year ~ ours is in our side yard. After hobbling around on crutches last year I'm really looking forward to expanding this year.
I'm getting anxious about being away from my kids for so long. Writing up my medical releases and whatnot right now. DH is away all week so I have a lot of work to do to get all of the kids ready. I bought a bunch of new clothes and I am starting to get really excited. Eeeeeekkkkk!
See, and I just want to bake and blog all day. . .how do I arrange that?

Oooohhh, I am so jealous you are going to Hawaii. I so need a vacation! Conner is doing much better today. He had me up at 4 this morning, after keeping his Daddy up most of the night, but I think it was the gravol making him dopy, cause he was in and out of sleep. He has been able to keep some fluid and crackers down this morning, but we are taking it slow as we dont want to overtax his tummy. If he keeps a light lunch down we will go get his IV removed this afternoon.
I do not have a garden. I had big plans when we moved into this house, but we have such a short growing season, and I always seem to be pregnant or have a new baby in the summer, so I havent got anything done. I have now given up We will plant some sort of garden in our next house, even if its just a small one for the kids to experiment in. I grew up with a huge garden and it was great!
Oh, and I did try to container garden our first year here, but he dog ate all my vegetables!
