Happy Birthday Lucas!!

Today is our Lukey Monster's happy, happy birthday. He's officially TWO although the attitude that comes with turning two showed up a couple weeks ago. I would have posted a photo of a clean face, but I'm not sure I've ever seen a clean face on this little guy. He's a busy one!

Our two geese and six of the eight ducks.

Homer put in my hanging shelves yesterday to give me more room. We took a trip to Plant Kingdom for tomatoes and cucumbers.

We still need shelving on this side.
I'm trying potatoes in tires this year to free up one of the beds for more flowers. They are planted in the four tires and in the middle where they meet. I ran out of dirt for the other tires so I may try straw. I didn't have super success with the straw method last year, but would like to give it another try.

Laundry Update: The answer to the looming question "How much laundry can one family have?". Apparently, 30 loads per week. Friday-Thursday last week I washed 27 loads. The best I could tell there were 3 still in the baskets. Of course, I didn't do any laundry the past weekend so now I'm way behind again. This is a battle I will never win!

What a sweet face on Lukey--dirty or not. I see we do have ducks on the mind.LOL Your plant starts are looking great---I have got to get going. I did get some soil and bedding plants but I am going to hold off on tomatoes and then get gallons--no seed starts anymore. MB
