Dad tilling the ground. We're pretty sure Walter (previous home owner) had a strawberry patch where I'm putting the garden.
All the seeds waiting to be planted.
Johnathon planting lettuce - I'm ready for some wilted lettuce, hope it grows quickly.
Sunday (all day long) we had massive winds blowing through here. On the registered meters they clocked them at 68 mph. I'm pretty sure we had gust for well over an hour that were stronger than that. My parents barn isn't the only one in the "country" with damage similar to this. I'm standing in the barn looking up here:
The winds died down some but where strong again on Wednesday when I took this picture.
A barn in a small town south of us crumbled, literally, in the high winds. It too was over 100 years old and it has the same roofing as my parents, now I just need to figure out who owns the pile of ruins so I can see if they'll sell some of the roofing.
Well, time for me to get going, have a 1-year old birthday party to get to followed by Prom pictures for four couples in Benton. After the photo session I'm heading to Rural King to get more gardening tools and a few more seeds too! Hope you have a great weekend.

He and I were having dinner a couple nights ago after his Freshman orientation and he tells me "If you want to" you could get me an iphone for my 8th grade graduation and I'll mow your lawn this summer. Little did he know it was already decided he'd be mowing, I just didn't realize that it'd cost me an iphone!
After an initial response of "I don't think so", I'm actually considering his proposal. His current plan has a limited internet service on it already so the iphone after initial purchase will cost me approximately $15/month more or $180 per year. What are the chances that I'd find lawn service for the year for $180?? So will his 8th grade graduation include an iphone?
