Barn Hop #10

To join the Homestead Barn Hop and read all the great posts, go here.

This week around our Homestead things are going well. The weather is HOT! We are watering every day already and the veggies are growing very nicely.

Mom was able to mow a little bit today. She waited for Saturday to do the "big mow" for Easter. She is very excited to be able to get back out there. The family came over and we had a casual Easter dinner after church. Lots of relaing was had by all. ;)

I started my garden later than I could have and I am really hoping I didn't wait too long. It gets really hot form now until August and I am a little worried that the plants might get too much sun. Is that possible?

I have been thinking about possibly starting a small community garden for me & my friends to work together. What do you think? Have you participated in a community garden? Any suggestions? Thanks for reading.
