Sorry for the long lull in posting. Things have been busy for us lately.  I recently started working as a Nurse Practitioner full time and David is just finishing up his last general surgery rotation.  He unofficially has the month of June off and starts working with only orthopedic surgery cases in July. After an intern year in general surgery, he is happy to finally be working in his specialty as a 2nd year resident.  We both can't believe how fast this year has come and gone.

Since we now have a nice yard, we decided to try our hand at gardening.  We started with seedlings inside about a month ago.
We planted spinach, bell peppers, tomato, butternut squash, and broccoli.  Also we bought strawberry, blueberry, and blackberry plants.
We must have done something right, because after only a week they looked like this...
A week later...
Once the weather completely warmed up we tilled up an area beside our house...
David was quite the handy man
And here is our garden now...


  1. Good for you girl! We thought about it, but it would be to much of a hassle with our dogs. They would probably dig everything we planted up.

  2. That's so awesome Julie! I wish I could do any sort of gardening. I just can't look at plants, and they die instantly. It's a sad curse.

  3. Soo crazy that you are gardening!! HAHA :) I'm impressed!
