Lots Happening!!

Well alot is going on here on our little homestead. We finally have dry wall up and it is getting spackled today and 2 more times during the week. We should be able to paint by this weekend!!!! yay!! Here are some pics to show the progress

Other news, I have been wanting raised beds but since the Farmer has been busy with work and things he just hasn't had the chance to build me any. And with this weather I am getting pretty anxious to get them made. Well at his work he found boxes they used for shelving and they can be stacked on each other, they were perfect for raised beds and best of all they were free!Added benefit if we move they can be folded up! So I ran to the hardware store with little farmer and little Hoss , got a gallon of white barn paint, and now they look great! I have two more to put second coats on, but all in all they are ready to be filled. Farmer and I went on a date night while mom-mom and pop-pop watched the boys for us. Thank you! So while we were out we went and picked up 10 bags or topsoil. Then went and picked out the flooring and paint for the basement.

Here are before and after pics. of the raised beds,

We also made a run for Happy to hop around in, so she has more room to move around during the day. She loves it and we used all scrap materials around the house which we enjoyed and so did our wallet hahaha

New in the garden: The seedlings are doing great! I have about 5 roma tomatoes coming up , I have about 10 or more pepper plants , broccoli, cauliflower, lavender, celery, oregano,leeks,cantaloupe, and many more. since this will be our last year with the big garden we are wanting to put alot in to preserve.

Well that is about it for now.Lots to do today. What is going on on your homesteads? What are you growing in your gardens this year?

Have a wonderful day!
