2 new additions to our family

i'm so excited to announce that....we got two new fruit trees! :)

meet mr. eureka lemon tree

and mrs. juicy pomegranate

we are really looking forward to raising these two special spirits and are especially excited for all the yummy fruit they will give us!  we wanted to get like 6 other trees at the nursery but they are not cheap, so maybe another week when our budget is replenished :)

of course we can't forget our other yard family members who were so good to us last year: mr. cherry tree and his son junior, mr and mrs plum, ms. pear and miss apple, (who i hope will be more giving this year since we didn't get to eat any of her apples last year before the birds got them).  oh, and we love you too strawberries and blueberries.

have i ever said how thankful i am to have a yard where we can plant and grow what we want?  well, I AM!  i love having food storage that we grow ourselves.  up next: finishing the vegetable garden!

that is sooooo awesome! it's great that in addition to the yard, you have some great weather year round to have fruit trees. homegrown fruit/veggies are the best. enjoy!
