And... I'm back!

Hello y'all! I'm back! I can't believe how a month has flown by. Thank you for sticking with me through my blog-cation. Did I go anywhere? Nope. Not really. But it was a nice break. Not that I was bored. Oh no. In fact, I've been busy, busy, busy.
So what have I been up to? There's been soccer. Lots of it! And I ran a 10km race with my SIL last weekend. It goes without saying, there's been some knitting. (You'll have to wait for the next post for that.) I've even started up a new project that I thought looked fun. But the biggest thing that has been taking up my time (other than soccer. Oi!) is the family garden. And when I say garden, I really mean GARDEN.
No seriously. My parents and brother and SIL don't take the garden seriously, they take it SERIOUSLY. You name a vegetable, I bet we planted it!
If you don't believe me, look at the garden map I made:
Yes. We've planted all that. To give you some scale we planted, 42 (count 'em. 42.) roma tomato plants at last count.
Things are already up! But the only thing really useable so far are chives and rhubarb. Let me tell you, I've been baking with rhubarb at least twice a week. It is fab-u-lous. Other things are starting to poke their head up. Like, my onions!

I am so very excited about what this summer will bring. Produce-wise and other-wise.
Hope everyone else had as nice a May as I did! What did you get up to?
