Heading Into Summer

We've had a nutty spring at the Struckman-Brown house. In fact, the weather has been so weird that it feels like we're moving straight from a mild winter to summer (it's supposed to be 90 tomorrow!). Here are some highlights:

The garden is flourishing. We've already harvested our first round of radishes. They were delicious. If all goes well, we'll have two more rounds. We're eating lots of salads too with our early greens. The peach tree is working like crazy to produce some sweet fruit. The potatoes, carrots, kale, arugula are up. The tomatoes and cucumbers are planted. Now we just need some rain AND sun and we'll be on our way!

Benny likes to help water. He's becoming quite the little gardner. Other spring highlights include a trip to Edmonton, Alberta, to my brother's wedding. Benny looked like such a little man in his sweater vest. We had a wonderful time. Luke and Aman make a great couple.

This weekend we head to the great state of Iowa to visit Nate's family. After Memorial Day, summer officially begins. Happy sunny days!
