A New Beginning

It has been a while since I have posted and since the last time a lot has changed. We are in the process of  moving, starting home school for the kids, and I am going back to college online this semester. Until we find a house we are staying with my wonderful in laws. My sweet Mother in law has an awesome hot house that we have started planting in.


The boys went out with me to check on the cherry tomato plants that we planted yesterday.

We are looking forward to seeing how well this works. I have never had a hot house to plant in and it is August :). We are hoping to plant more later but thought this was a good start.  These are heirloom seeds and the only ones we could find at the store that were.  The boys had fun out there!
