Tyson's Pride and Joy

I've mentioned before that I often lose Tyson to the garden sometimes. Well, he spent the whole morning in it again getting it weeded and raked out and such. So when I came home from work this afternoon it looked fantastic! Everything seems to be growing rather well. Our corn is chest high (for me that is, it comes about to Tyson's waist). I'm glad that we bought tomato cages when we did a couple of weeks ago because they have really taken off. The yellow pear tomato plant is already over three feet tall and our cucumber is taking over, the the cantelope is also trying to invade the corn patch. My goodnss, doesn't it know that it is only June, we have a couple of months more to go still! I'm not really complaining, I love our garden. We picked our first cucumber yesterday. I know, it is silly, but it is our first garden so we are pretty excited about it all. We've started planning out the beds that we will build next Spring so that we are ready to get going on that project when the time comes. Unfortunatly, given when we moved into our house, we didn't have too much time for planning, we just bought and planted.

As far as our upcoming projects go, we have our work cut out for us for next month. We are going to be painting our living room and dining room. I have been racking my brain about this for months because it is a somewhat open floor plan, the rooms flow together, so I had to figure out the whole scheme for the living room, kitchen and dining room before I could move forward on anything. Anyway, the other day I finally figured it out. The dining room will be the red, the kitchen will be the lighter shade of green with the cabinets painted white and the living room will be the yellow color parallel to the green there. All of the trim, doors and ceilings are going to be the same beach white color (a pattern I have been keeping up throughout the house thus far). Anyway, some have said I'm a little crazy, but I think that it will be great. I'll post pictures next week when I'm done and you'll see, it will be fantastic!
