Well I am ready to get back into some more regular blogging. Hubs and I have been quite occupied with a variety of things lately. The largest of those being the purchase of a new house/property and selling our current home.
The great news is that we have buyers for our home and I am just about 100% sure that they are going to LOVE it here as much as we have. It is truly going to be a bittersweet move for us. We have put a lot of ourselves into this house and it is going to be hard to leave it behind. BUT we are moving to an awesome new place. Well, it will be awesome once we get done with it!
Like this house, our new one is structurally sound – just needs to be updated and whoopy doopied. :) (totally a verb) We are making all sorts of plans in our heads as to what we are going to do out there – move some rooms around, open it up. First things first though – CLEANING and PAINTING. Oh the joys…will put up pics of the new place soon. We are scheduled to close FRIDAY!
Being busy has largely kept me out of the gardens – which makes me grateful that I have taken a super low maintenance approach to the landscaping and gardens around the house. They look great – especially after the last bout of rain we had. At any rate, the rhubarb has been left to grow wild and I haven’t harvested it. I was telling everybody how big the leaves have gotten, but it is hard to actually get the point across so hubby and I took some snaps with a few leaves in the backyard today after work. (He is such a good sport – and a real cutie pie too!)
Are you impressed with the size?
Surely you must be.
They are really gigantic rhubarb leaves! Ginormous. Humongous. Extraordinarily large. Exciting!
A few summers ago we used rhubarb leaves to make some stepping stones in the garden. The veins on the leaves are really big and veiny so they work really well.
I am looking forward to starting new gardens at our acreage…we should be able to squeeze some plants in somewhere on our 24 acre plot of dreamland, right?
