|The view from my back porch|
|I don't know what it is, but it's cheerful|
|Lily is particularly fond of yellow flowers|
|Parsnips are in the ground now|
|So is the salsify|
|The onions are growing slowly|
|The garlic is already 6-8 inches tall and growing like crazy|
|Marking carrot rows with sand|
|Tomatoes are nearly ready to be transplanted|
|Spending some time on the porch|
|Getting ready for the garden|
|The lettuce will go in tomorrow|
|3 weeks age difference between the biggest and the smallest|
|The bees love it|
This is my friend, Carina, from middle school.
This is her daughter Penny. She was diagnosed with cancer before she turned 2 years old. She was a tough little girl, she made it through all of her surgeries and chemo, things were looking good. Last week little Miss Penny had a doctor's appointment. The news wasn't good, she has relapsed. She's already started very aggressive treatment and is going to be dealing with a lot of side effects. So I want my readers to send Penny and Carina good thoughts. If you pray (to whomever) please pray for them.
