Plant them seeds in the ground!

Yup folks, it's that time of year again...no not THAT time, the other time. Ya know, the one where it gets warmer and stuff grows outta the ground. Well, so far not so much on the warmer thing, but the growing part is starting to happen so we decided to make a new garden bed.
As you can see, yours truly designed and built this ten by four foot monster with the scrap wood laying around the yard (and some help from Honey Bunny). When I say designed I really mean just built, but whatever.
After we finished that Emily built a little hot house for the seedlings we started in the basement.Now, if only the sun would show up for more than five minutes at a time we might be able to put it to use.
One week later we filled old Clyde up with as much dirt as he could haul (the back bumper was about four inches off the ground on our trip back from the dirt place and the front end was nearly pointing straight up!) and loaded it into the new bed. Fancy!!
All the while Kenny and Viola watched bemusedly.
In the meantime I've been brushing up on my acoustic fingerpicking technique since I broke my keyboard.

And Honey Bunny has been making jewelry for the bohemian crowd.
Look how cute she is weeding the front yard (which is still a bit ghetto, but getting nicer everyday (unlike the weather).

And then I got a mustache.
That's pretty much all you need to know.
