Planting and puppy dogs

 Okay, first I have to admit that as I sit here typing this I have a cute little fluff ball at my feet. We got a new Great Pyrenees/Lab mix puppy yesterday. I had no intention of getting a puppy when the day started, but there was this ad on had a picture...I just couldn't resist. So we picked up Boris yesterday afternoon. He's 8 weeks old and already HUGE!

 Anyway, that's all beside the point. The real point of tonight's blog is the garden. Mike and I got all 6 of the new trees planted (today Bruno ate the top off of the plum tree, so I'm not sure that one is gonna make it.) I spent Sunday afternoon getting the asparagus and garlic planted in the garden.

 Then, today I started my herb seeds and a few veggies.

 Lily thought it was great fun to help fill up the pots and plant seeds. We got 81 small pots started and 5 bigger pots.

I'm cutting tonight's entry a little short because Daddy is out of town and I have to put the munchkins to bed on my own tonight. Luckily the puppy (and the batch of soup I made this afternoon) kept Gabe occupied and calm. So goodnight everyone, Blessed Be

  1. Everything looks BEAUTIFUL!!!!

    I'm glad that the evening went well with Gabe. That puppy could very likely become close to him and become his *service dog*, if you will, keeping him clam and relaxed. The puppy may even already have sensed that Gabe *needs* him. We have had two Labs. One full breed and one mixed. They are amazing dogs.

    Enjoy the rest of your evening.
