Digger turned a year old right before all of the graduations. Yes, I do know my dog's birthday and it happens to be May 21, 2010. lol I was going to make him a dog safe cake with dog safe frosting but just did not have the time. He has gotten so big!!!
May was the month of graduations. My sister-in-law, brother, and both Dan and I graduated. The first 2 were your typical graduation with the typical graduation music ( dun dun dun dun dun dun). Our graduation was quite different. Of course we had your ordinary speakers but then we had a vocal group come up and do a little concert.We all were dancing and singing to everything they sang. It was so fun!

We decided to take some of the money we received from graduation and put it into getting plants for our garden. Our garden has watermelon, honeydew, a grape vine, a tomatillo plant, 4 tomatoes, some serranos, green, red, and orange bell peppers, zucchini, crookneck squash, yellow squash, cilantro, 2 types of oregano, garlic, strawberries, and probably some others that I am forgetting. We also planted a semi-dwarf apple tree to go along with our cherry tree. We are going to have a ton of canning to do later on this year.
Here is our garden so far
Our strawberry patch that we put on one of the terraces of the garden
Here is the front of our garden. We planted honeysuckle plants on the outside that will eventually cover the entire front fence minus the gate
Our little apple tree. It is pretty much as tall as it will ever get. We will not have edible fruit for 3 years with it, but it is well worth the wait.
We have been trying to do everything we can to improve the house. Our house is not in bad shape or anything, we just like to tinker with it. Today I painted my plain white utensil holder to match my kitchen. Here is a picture of it for you. What do you think?
