I am mom to; Sailor, Hudson, Linden and wife to my loving husband Chris. We are a military family and therefore always on the move. I enjoy blogging about our little urban homestead, our attachment parenting choices and our adventures as a newly homschooling family.
If you are reading this and happen to be in our area, greater Wilmington NC, please visit our moms group. Parenting Naturally's goal is to bring together families who are choosing to try to live their lives and raise their children with kindness towards themselves others and the planet. Common topics/themes might be breastfeeding, non-violent communication, babywearing, co-sleeping, options in childbirth (natural, home, waterbirth, vbac, etc.), cloth diapering, elimination communication, herbs, homeopathy, healthy foods, homeschooling, unschooling, exchanging resources, etc.
Well everything is growing, though we do have some out of control summer squash. We have yet to plant the corn, though I plan on getting that done this weekend. My only big disappointments so far is the flowers which some little critter keeps eating the seedlings of and the strawberries. Who knew flower seedlings were so yummy. Our garden at this house is at the end of the yard due to most of our yard being shaded. I am a BIG believer in keeping your garden very close to your house, I think you are much more likely to keep up with it, if it is right out your door. One of the draw backs of it being so removed from the house is that all the little animals have no fear of going and stealing our strawberries. Next year I will have to put the strawberry container right next to the house and maybe we will actually get to eat some.
We have tomatoes, cucumbers and summer squash almost ready to be picked.
So here it is in all of it's late spring glory. Sailor has been doing a GREAT job tending to her pumpkin plants.
