Beth and the boy that she likes have reorganized the calander so that all of the holidays fall during the school year. They celebrated his birthday last month and are celebrating her birthday this month. I think that they celebrated her birthday, on her birthday too. Maybe they are celebrating them multiple times a year.
Our garden from last year has sprouted. All of the plants from last year were annuals, but maybe because we had such a mild winter, some of the plants are sprouting. I had really wanted time off from the garden this year, but if it all sprouts, we will have a garden. We have a drip hose that we can set up to do the watering and we can mulch it really well. The tomato plants can go out into the middle of the yard so that they can be in the drip line too.
The garlic is two or three inches high. It needs mulched because we won't be able to mow the grass that is around it.
