coming and going

It is different around Emerald Lane after almost two weeks away, the grass is a little longer, our dog is a little stinkier, the house has a new house smell that we stopped noticing, the pigs and chickens are bigger and the garden is growing like crazy! I couldn't believe the corn, it has tripled in size and the watermelon is taking over the garden already. Everything is really going strong, thanks to our temporary gardener (Jay's Mom), she kindly took care of our beloved garden, watered and weeded when she wasn't feeding the pigs and chickens and taking care of her own garden. Thanks Mom Henry!

First Lettuce Harvest!

Oh, but there is more! We are only in town for a quick re-pack and one day of rest before we are off again to South Carolina and Virginia for some country fun. First stop, Easley, SC to visit a family farm with some friends. Second stop, Abingdon,VA for a family conference. So, thanks again Mom Henry for your hard work and dedication, only 5 days to go!

Your garden looks amazing. And I love the picture of your son in his boots, my girls have the same ones for hiking around the farm and stream.
I saw that you're going to the Highlands Study Center this weekend. My husband and I have never been there, but we've enjoyed listening to RC Sproul/Jr.'s basement tapes, and we enjoy a lot of Doug and Nancy Phillip's books....I'd love to hear how your time is....

Crystal, the boots are Sean's second pair so far, I didn't know you left a pair here.
