Sometimes I get so caught up in my dream of having a property with more acreage that I miss what I have. We have a good thing going here. The boys pretty much have the run of 3 properties - ours, & 2 properties owned by my in-laws. My sister in law lives next to us (that's where we keep our garden and most of the pics are taken there) and my in-laws live in the next property down from there. Plus we have beautiful farmland behind us.
I'll admit I built this tent. I tried to get the boys involved and they helped a bit, but most of the labor was done by me.
Wyatt hanging out.
Edison found a few cherry tomatoes still hanging on our plants.
Joseph checking out the tomato plants
Edison was 'storing' the tomatoes and jalapanoes he found in a corner of the tent.
Charlie saw a caterpillar that he wanted to 'keep for a pet'
All my boys. (Wyatt said 'Wait to take the picture Mom until I get my foot on top my head.')
This area of our garden is used as a burn pile for brush, etc. after plants are done producing. It also become a boy excavation zone.
My iris is confused. It thinks it's spring.
Who needs flowers in their flowerpots? My boys planted a pumpkin seed to see if it would grow and now we have a pumpkin plant trailing out. I think it's actually quite pretty.
