With spring break here we have been spending a lot of time at the farm. Deedz is on a trip to Dubuque with her buddy, Kip is busy gaming with his friends, and Ansley is hanging with us for the most part – So there isn’t any reason to be running back and forth between the two houses. It sure makes getting something accomplished a lot easier!
Over the past couple of weeks the seedlings have been making good progress. The broccoli and cauliflower are almost ready to go out into the garden. I transplanted about half of the tomato plants yesterday, as they were getting very leggy and beginning to flop over. Will have to get the rest done when we get back to town. I have also got the peas planted but have not seen anything coming up yet.
We celebrated Kip’s 18th bday on St. Patrick’s Day. All of his buddies came over to take him out. We didn’t get him a real present because he couldn’t decide what he wanted. Probably will end up with some concert tickets. We are trying to get him to get off his rear and get a job – but no luck yet!
My sister from Iowa came out last weekend to quilt with Gma and I. She came on Thursday and stayed until Monday so we had lots of time together and actually got quite a bit accomplished. I finished piecing the Finglas Farm quilt – still have to finish up the embroidery – and Gma started her quilt kit. Kathy did the cutting so that was a big help – not so much bending over for Gma. Kathy didn’t get much accomplished on her own projects, although she did some crocheting on a “Perry the Platypus” she is making for Charlie. It was fun to have her here and listen to her chatter away as we sewed!
