Sights from the homestead

Say hello to my little... er HUGE friend! Rhubarb! Isn't it amazingly beautiful?!?! I had absolutely no idea just how big she would grow! I have two small ones beside her that I am going to have to move, because she is almost taking up one whole side of the bed. My green onions are being shaded as is! I'll know better when I plant again next year. I've got to give this plant some ROOM!

My strawberries are getting ready in the bed closest to me... I just finished getting the bed farthest from me finished. Tomatoes will fill it up today! Yay!
The ladies sure are enjoying their new home. Oh how I love it.
My Eli is conquering a fear of heights... He is conquering... I am realizing *I* may now have that phobia. Of my kids on heights.  He lost his toy helicopter on the roof and was brave enough to retrieve it.
My kids are growing up on me!
I'll say good-bye with a huge sigh of contentment. As long as I focus my view this way, I am a happy, happy, happy lady. Some day I will tell you about the thorn in my side. It's a painful one.
Until then.... SMILE!
