Moments from the Week

The garden is coming along well.  I have about 100 onion starts planted, have started to eat the lettuce, the kale, snap peas, radishes, and carrots are all coming up nicely.   The garlic looks beautiful.  This is the first year we have our own garlic.    I had hoped to plant beans, corn (excited about trying some this year!), potatoes, dill, basil, squash and this weekend but the weather is going to be cold and wet - perhaps only a high 45 tomorrow.  Everything is so very wet so the planting will have to wait.

Mike put the slide right into one of the dirt mounds (from when our basement was dug out) instead of on the platform with ladder like steps so Emmy can go up and down on her own.

Right where you are... great reminder.

A young lady, friends of our older boys, is a budding photographer and was here on Wednesday.  She took the last three photos.

This "moments from the week" was inspired by Jules.

Wishing you a beautiful weekend,


  1. lovely moments, Tonya! I love the three youngest all holding something in their arms. .. and Emmy's is a boot! :)

  2. Hi Tonya...I love your moments this week! And those photos by your friend are beautiful. I hope to see a photo of dear little Emmy on that wonderful slide ~ a brilliant idea. Enjoy your weekend!

    P.S. I have yet to do my moments...maybe tomorrow! :)

  3. Lovely photos and sweet children. A very good idea to put up the slide that way. Planted out my thyme basil, leeks and carrots yesterday. Had 0 degrees celsius in the night and particularly the basil and thyme look very sad. Can't remember having frost so late in may before. Hope you have a lovely weekend. Love your ducklings by the way, Pam xx

  4. A lovely start to your garden! Such cute pictures of your children! Enjoy the week ahead!

  5. I always enjoy my visit here....lovely post today,such precious children....blessings. Love the quote by Ann
