Gardening Time

It's warming up outside which means it's garden time again.

Can you see the horrible weeds that have "plagued" us. There is no end!!

yummmm, ten rows of fruits and veggies
ugg, still more weeds

Jake and I bought a rototiller so we don't have to borrow my parent's anymore. It works great! We planted zucchini (lots of it), tomatoes, bell peppers, cucumbers, butternut squash and this year we're trying onions. I've never planted that veggie before, but it's worth a try.

Which Jane Austen Heroine Are You?

Ok, I'm soooooo sorry!! I haven't done any blogging in over a month. I had good intentions but it just didn't happen. I'll blame it on Parent/Teacher Conferences and Report Cards. Anyway... I did this questionaire to figure out which character I was and it is too funny that I ended up with Anne Elliot since my maiden name is Elliott. (They always spell the last name wrong, hehe). I'm not sure if she is truly me because there were some questions that I wasn't sure about but put an answer anyway. To be honest, I don't even know who she is. I've never seen that movie or read that book.

You are Anne Elliot of Persuasion! Let's face it; you're easily persuaded, particularly when friends and relatives try to use "the Elliot way" against you. But this doesn't mean that you don't have conviction. Actually, your sense of duty is overwhelming. And though you won't stick your neck out too often, you have learned to speak up when it counts. To boot, you know how to handle sticky situations. You love deeply and constantly.
