{ this weekend : Earth Day }

Oh this weekend, what a beautiful couple of days we had. Full.  Full of excitement, friends, busyness, sun, dirt, work.  Full of everything.

It all got started thanks to our friends who helped us with a load of compost-dirt for our new potato (field) bed.

So we planted the rest of our potatoes, knowing we are a little late for them.  But we are giving them a go anyways.

This from our first planting day.

And we had some space left, so we planted Siena’s peas she’s been growing in her greenhouse.

We also got two loads of bark chips to cover the muddy spots and freshen up our paths and garden.

And why not make a new garden bed, right?

Played with friends (not sure what game this was, but it went something like ‘I’ll tie you and then you tie me.’)

And planted.

And planted.

And planted some more.

Siena and Lucas are remodeling their play house, now being turned into a club house, getting a complete wash, cleaning, paint, and new furniture.

Noticed.

And then we noticed something else. Friday evening, we realized our bees had swarmed. They were in our neighbor’s camelia tree.
