Thanks to Cousin Lauren for pointing out that Genever and the Apple Tree share hairstyles.

Hi there!

This is Rose. She's our new little girl, but not that little. She will be 2 in April and is a sweet kitty. She'll never replace our Dotster, who we still miss everyday. But Rose has settled in so well and so quickly, and she's got a lot of quirks that I haven't seen in cats other then Dorothy.. I haven't had any shoe fish yet, but time will tell.. Even G kind of likes her, and she's only been here 3 and a half weeks!

Dorothy, we will always miss you.

Our little Polka Dot may be gone, but she will always live on in our hearts. She was one cool kit.

Mmmm garden tomatoes!

Shoe Fish

Almost every morning there is a fish in my shoes! This has been going on for some months now, but I've decided to start documenting it. Maybe one day I will see or even hear the culprit!

The Veggie Patch after 10 weeks

We've eaten a lot of snow peas and green beans, some radishes and a carrot. Looking forward to tomatoes, scallions and spaghetti squash later on!

My Veggie Patch- 4 weeks later

It's been 4 weeks since I planted the patch, and things are growing! (Disclosure- the big leek in the back-right corner is from last year. It took its time, but it eventually grew!!)

Veggie Patch 2013!

I started some seeds in the greenhouse, and transplanted the seedlings and planted new seeds into the veggie patch on St. Patrick's Day, Sunday 3/17/13. I dug some good organic fertilizer into the soil so I won't get pygmy veggies this year! I covered them with Darren's homemade seed row covers until they get big enough so birds don't eat them and the sun doesn't fry them:

I also dug around for any blue potatoes that might've grown from the tater I planted in November... 4 potatoes! OK, they are midget potatoes, and I will probably replant them and try for normal sized ones, but it's a start!
