Life at the Shire

Way back in March, my family came up from Oregon to meet the teeny tiny baby Delaney. While my mom was waiting on me hand and foot (THANK YOU MOM), my dad and brother Jimmy needed a guy job to do. So they planted us our garden that we had intended to plant but never got around to. You know, because we we were busy having a baby.

Steve has been busy being a little farmer hobbit. Here are some pictures to prove it. You can see my shadow in many of the shots--evidence that I really am the worst photographer out there. Well, maybe not the worst. I'm pretty sure that I'm better than Laney...at least for now.

They also planted us a wee little orchard! Nectarine, lime, lemon, orange, and avacado trees now grace our fence line.

Here's a shot of some of our corn, pole beans, and herbs.

Tomatoes, basil galore, cucumbers, carrots and green onions.

Side shot--check out those green onions!

Corn and some sweet peas (psst...DON'T eat the sweat peas!)
