Our New Addition (Part 3) And 2010 Garden Plan
OK, so I'm going to pretend I've been blogging this whole time and haven't missed more than a year and just move on.
Well, maybe after mentioning we had another kid. That kinda keeps happening...

Now back to our regularly-scheduled programming. I wanted to post a picture of this year's garden layout:
(Click sketch to enlarge)
This year's garden brought to you by my sister-in-law and expert gardener Lori, because I was super preggers and had no energy to do it myself. What a wonderful
baby present! (Or was it my 30th birthday present? Oh yeah, missed that, too.)
Most of the garden has been torn out and recycled by now, with lots of help from the kiddos, who are always excited to DESTROY! RIP OUT! Hey, whatever works...
2009 Garden Crop (I know I have that garden sketch around here somewhere...)

from Bethlehem, NH said the following on 12/15/2010 at 19:36:34:I spent a while looking through a few years worth of your blog tonight, hoping to get some ideas for tiling our kitchen and bathroom and deciding on a kitchen island. I am so overwhelmed with this stuff, especially since we are trying to do some of this things you and Ryan did in two months rather than a few years. Did you buy your island as its own piece or did you actually build it? I wish I could have a mini-Leah in my pocket to advise me on how to choose tile, countertops, islands, carpet, light fixtures, etc, etc, etc. Miss you!Steph
