We finally got our garden planted. We’re growing tomatoes (2 varieties of heirlooms), peppers (red and orange bell and banana), beans, lettuce, cilantro, basil, marigolds, and lavender. After the birth of our little Speck, moving when she was six weeks old, and now chasing after […]

It All Started As A Speck

It All Started As A Speck

It all started as just a little Speck, but this week Kim and I found out that we’re having a little GIRL!  That’s right world, get ready, because we’re going to be parents in just a few (seriously) short months. So yes, it’s a little […]

Garden Update

Garden Day

Today was Garden Starting Day.  Not for the tomato plants we started from seeds, but for some other plants.  We bought a green pepper plant and some basil and cilantro plants at the farmer’s market this morning.  Then we went to Home Depot to get […]
