First off, on Friday we had our 20 week ultrasound! It was absolutely AMAZING to get to see what our little baby looks like! We are going to wait until the birth to find out if it's a boy or a girl. The ultrasound tech told us to close our eyes when she had to check the anatomy, so when I opened them I asked, "So do you know?" and she looks at me and says, "I do!" Aahh! That was just so crazy to me that she knew whether we were having a son or a daughter.
But Conor and I were able to stick to our guns and save the big reveal for August. It's basically the most exciting surprise you have in your life, so we didn't want to ruin it! Baby was so cooperative with letting us check everything that needed to be checked, and -praise the Lord!- Baby is completely healthy! We even got to see a yawn, which was about the cutest thing I've ever seen. :)
Now on to talk about our garden. Thursday after Conor got home from work he built a raised garden bed. He built it so fast! We decided to start out this year with just one so that we can learn the ropes and learn what to do the same or different next year. Next year we'll likely add one or two more raised beds. I planted carrots, lettuce, kale, broccoli, onions, and celery. We are also going to plant tomatoes, which will go in the back section of the raised bed. Then I planted strawberries alongside our blueberry bush. I'm hoping they'll get enough sun there, so we'll see how they grow! Next to the blueberry bush we're planning to plant a fruit tree, but haven't decided what type yet. We also would like to plant a row of raspberries! The raspberries will probably go alongside our house. And then I'd also like to try my hand at growing potatoes, which I'll plant in a separate container behind the raised bed.
I'm really looking forward to seeing how everything grows! I've always wanted to have a garden so I'm excited that ours is starting to take shape!
