A Shovel Just For Joey

Joey got his very own shovel this week. He loves it and it is just his size! Papa and Grandma got it for him at the Tractor Supply store. He loves it so much and went right to work digging holes. He also stated that his shovel was not for poop, only dirt. I guess he wont be cleaning up after the dog with this one ;)

Thank you Papa and Grandma!

I am Happy,

Planting The Blackberries

We spent a couple hours last week planting our blackberries. They run along the fence line and will be trained up on five wires to make an organic fence! I think that they will look so pretty especially when they are blooming. The pictures below are of my mom and dad and the kids. Kristen and I helped dig the holes until we hit hard pan then my dad busted it up for us. We have real sandy soil until you hit about a foot and a half then its hard pan city. Jenna and my mom planted and Joey helped everyone. He even filled in a couple of holes before we had planted them :)

I love all the things happening around here! I can't wait to do more! It feels good to work the land and to know that my family will be well fed! We like to tell the kids when we are out working that if You Don't Work,  You Don't Eat! Great lesson!

I am Happy,

Corral Fence for The Garden

We have been very busy working on the fence around the garden. My mom and dad spent a few days up here so we could complete the fence. The guys worked really hard while my mom and I work hard on our tans :)  We will be attaching some wire around the fence to keep out the little cotton tails we have running around here. I'm excited to get it planted! We are running a bit behind, we keep getting lots of rain which is a blessing.

The kids enjoyed helping and my little Joey just loves to be outside. He has a very cute little farmers tan to prove it  

I am Happy,

The Vineyard Swimming Hole

The kids had a fun time playing in "The Swimming Hole". :) This one comes around once a month, March through August and only lasts a couple of days.

Isn't being a kid so much fun?

I hope you all have a wonderful day!

I am happy,
