What a difference Sunshine makes...

Our Family started it off Saturday with a little community service for Earth day...picking up trash around town with a group of kids from the high school and Jr. High. It's amazing how much garbage is just laying around town and  how quickly it can be picked up with a group of energetic kids.

Did you do anything special for Earth Day?

After we got home, Corbin surprised me with these beauties.... I just Love a teenage boy who is cool enough to bring his mom a flowers!

We also got the Peas in. 

Sunday was our Play in the dirt day!
Onions, Leeks, Broccoli and Cabbage are also in...

I love the soil Blocks...

They made planting the onions a breeze... I just set the blocks to the spacing I wanted, and then covered with dirt :-)
Easy... Peasy!

Troy pruned trees and did all the manly chores...like driving the tractor around, weeding and playing with his Mad Max Flamo torch thingy.

Tia and I raked, composted, and planted the garden today.
We both needed a bath at the end of the day.

The Boys went to work for the neighbor, doing yard work.

and we mulched the pathways with aged straw to keep the weeds at bay.

With the weather in the 70's today...
We were finally able to hang the laundry out to dry!

 what a difference Sunshine makes.....Life is good!
