Merry Christmas!!

Last week, we had snow, but I couldn't get my photos loaded up
here, so a little late, but here is what it looked like in our corner of
the Garden State.

Princess had a blast playing in the snow and ice.

It was even more fun when Farmer Dad joined in.

We hope you and yours had a wonderful holiday season, regardless
of what or how you celebrate! May 2009 bring us enough rainfall
to grow what we want, and enough sunshine to enjoy it all!

Many Reasons not to post...

Sorry it has been so long between posts here.
It was very cold, then it warmed up, then it snowed again.
Now it is cold. My camera is not hooked up to the last remaining
machine running in this house, and our energy has been on getting
some stuff done around inside the house, as well as baking,baking,baking.
We spent Monday loading up many small boulders and a small wall
of slate from my Grandparents property to ours. Luckily it
was 65 degrees outside when we did it. Tuesday it snowed.
There was also freezing rain and hail, but there is still a bit of white outside.
I took some lovely photos, but I cannot load them up as of yet.
Hopefully Farmer Dad (aka Computer Game Geek) will make up
his mind on a new machine (we really need at least two to keep peace)
and we can get back on track. A big problem is finding a new(at least to us) desk
as our current one only accommodates one user/computer system, and we need
at least two. Have I mentioned how much my daughter loves playing computer games alongside her Dad?
When he's at work it is doable, but if he wants to play a game, so does she. Mucho tension ensues.
I tried to convince him to get two cheapish machines for them and a lap top for me, but he's really not buying it. ;-)
Literally. I will post photos as soon as I can figure out where the camera cord can be connected to this machine.
I have many plans for next years garden, and dreams for our backyard to share with you all.
