what we got in the mail today

My swap package from my diaper swap partner came today!

She sent us two diapers–one of which Wesley immediately modeled. Cute, eh?

She also sent along a hat for Mary that her daughter has outgrown. Mary was delighted.

Now, a garden update. Everything is looking good! The peas, which didn’t seem to be coming up, have begun to sprout. The other things are flourishing.

Here’s my insanely lush herb planter:

One of my square foot beds–planted with a few snap peas, tomatoes, basil, and a row of mixed greens.

Overall shot of the garden–you can see the green onions growing on the left in a row [the one that needs weeding], a mound of cucumber, a row of beans, and a row of squash [yellow and patty pan]. Tomatoes in the front and serrano peppers!

I just tilled up another couple of rows’ worth of yard off to the side and we’re going to be adding cipollini onions and purple spring onions, plus more herbs and some broccolini. This is definitely the best garden I’ve had so far. Of course, last year I was hugely pregnant and couldn’t weed for more than 10 seconds without toppling over, purple in the face.

Yes, that’s right–your logic tells you correctly. Wesley is almost one.
