Right after we moved into the house, we drove over to see our daughter, Sarah who is 6 months pregnant. She looks great and is so excited. Then we drove down to Charleston, SC to see my 88 year-old mother. She is amazingly spry and can keep up on a 1 1/2 mile walk with no problem. Enjoyed the beach and surf, too.

We have moved in to our new home. Still a few odds and ends to finish. The garden is flourishing. Preparing for insect and fungus problem by having Gardens Alive Shield-All and rotenone/pyrethium on hand.

We are selling about 10 pounds of spring lettuce a week. New potatoes, greens, beets, onions and yellow squash are coming on, too.
Our article in Rural Heritage was in the May/June addition. I am working on another now for Rural, Market Gardening and signed a contract with BackHome Magazine for my article, Finding a Usable Piece of Land. I am not sure when it will be published.

oing after the weeds systematically every day makes it much easier. If we weed something everyday, we are not overwhelmed with huge weed patches and the garden is so beautiful.
