What I've been Growing

Post  acara on 5/5/2012, 9:06 am

Life is "normalizing" after 18 months of not having 5 minutes to even sit down and catch our breath....so I figured it was time to dust off the computer & the SFG boxes Very Happy



Our "3-1/2 Blackberry-Tall" Baby (Connor) is doing well & we are actually over the 50% mark in both height/weight......




...and he's a little bigger than 3-1/2 Blackberrys' now Laughing







Mama and Baby are doing well & I'm hoping to get some time to get the SFG boxes up and running again shortly & be back on the forums.

Gerber doesn''t seem to have a stage 2 Blackberry Very Happy

If it's any consolation .... he loves anything to do with sweet potatoes. Think he's gonna be a veggemite, like daddy.

LOL, Well, what ever his preference he's a good growing sprout! I find Marmite better than Vegemite, but don't tell me Aussie mates.

Ok, I'll admit, every since this:


I've always wondered exactly what Vegemite is Razz
And camp, look at that van

Acara, I know I wasn't around in your prime here, but you got a handsome young man there, and welcome back
I've seen lot's of pictures you shared in the past (especially your drip systems Cool ) and you've got some great looking beds! Keep us updated Very Happy
