me and my snip job.

yellow squash,
radishes,
pumpkins,
green beans,
and cucumbers.
all popping their pretty little green heads up through the dirt today.
SO exciting!!! 
every time:)
i still can't get over how strong those little seeds are.
breaking through the dirt to the light.
amazing.
every morning,
before i even get my breakfast,
you can be assured,
i'm out checking on our garden.
it's like christmas morning,
every morning.
thrilling!!!
i love the dump truck tracks every which way across my grass.
every little boy needs a tonka truck.
1 yr olds are the best:)
also...
i MAY have gone a little overboard on the pruning today.
it started out as a snip job for broken branches from last week's wind storm.
the peach tree even lost a few arms.
and then all of a sudden...
well, 
you be the judge.
BEFORE...
AFTER...
who knew there was a satellite dish under there?!?
ok, maybe we knew.
it just seems like i got more aggressive the further to the left i went.
i had no plans to prune.
zero.
but pruning i did.
everything was dead in the middle of what i fondly referred to as the trees on the side of the house,
so i just kept clipping.
and now they are bushes.
as they should be.
my arms feel like J-E-L-L-O tonight.
if they die from over pruning,
i'll plant more lilacs.
no biggie:)
my basement is DEFINITELY going to be brighter.
no idea what we are going to do with all of those clippings.
i probably should have waited for the bulk waste removal in the fall.
but pruning is like...
well, it's like...
it's like...
you know...
it's like...
look, you just have to do it when you're in the mood.
we'll leave it at that.
sean pulled out a massive tarp to pull it over to the garbage cans 
on the other side of the house. 
in one full swoop.
genius.
me and my snip job.
have mercy.
