{52 Snapshots of Life} Week 5: Earth

Mom’s head was a spinning with ideas to do with Earth (har har: spinning and earth.  I hope it isn’t spinning too fast).  When mom thinks of earth she thinks of DIRT.  It was earth day on Wednesday, April 22, hence the theme of Earth.  I’m still going with the idea of DIRT, lol.  My cats are only allowed outside on a halter and Eddie and Java hate it.  Dac loves it, but she is a bit of a monkey and being on a second floor balcony is a bit dangerous.

The baby garden at 0.33 acres. I plant veggies that need to be picked three times a week (beans and cucumbers) and early crops in this garden (beets, cabbage, and carrots). The other garden is a 3 acre pumpkin patch and 0.7 acre veggie garden.

I had to include a picture of the farm dog, Stuey, enjoying the green grass.

The temp inside of the greenhouse. One time the fan broke and it went up to 50 celsius. I didn’t work in the greenhouse that day. We have two temps because we have a greenhouse inside of a greenhouse. Sounds confusing, but it is our way of saving heat. In the beginning of the season we only use 1/3 of the greenhouse.

Jenny doesn’t enjoy when earth (dirt) and water mix. Jenny is a mini horse that my parents use to give pony rides. This is a very “earthy” picture :).
