Well, I have been quickly trying to catch up on everyone's lives.. and farms..

Kathleen, I am sad about all your losses... My prayers are with you.

Neil, I watched the Royal Wedding with great interest.. I hope this wonderful young couple gets a bit of privacy to enjoy life.

My husband and I have been caught up in our middle daughter's sad divorce.. She has needed to get one for some time..but had tried desperately to keep her young family together.. We have spent weekends and my vacation helping with her move from a beautiful three story house to a small rental. We are now helping her financially until she gets her feet under her.

Hubby is off to the city to watch our Grandsons, so our daughter can have some down time. He has fresh garden lettuce and onions for each of our three daughter's families .. I have also had such beautiful spinach..

I cut the spinach and took to work yesterday.. I deveined it and put it out as an offering at lunch.. One of my usual mottos is: "I raise it, you cook it". So, I basically had to ask a couple of times for people to eat the spinach... one of the nurses finally said, If you have any more , I will fix it for everyone with olive oil, peppers, etc..

Last week all the crops were going in at a furious rate.. Just in time for a cold front to move through with rain.. We have soybeans and corn this year..

My iris have been lovely...

Had my first strawberry out of the garden yesterday.. yum..
