Making things grow

We started with this:

And now we have this:

When I say we, I mean Jen. She's done the bulk of the tending, but I guess I did help with the planting. I also helped with the harvesting and eating. We had our first home grown salad last night, and it was delicious. I've never had my own garden before (even though gardening is in my blood), so I'm still a little high on the whole concept. We grow our own food!

Check out some additional photos of our deck/garden on Flickr.

Two sets of parents!

When our parents come to visit, we like to show off our scenic vistas:

Michael's parents came first for the May long weekend, and my parents just left us on Sunday. Both visits were so much fun! We toured the Cowichan Valley, we hiked up Mount Work, we went to the Highland Games, we watched the Snow Birds from the harbour, we fixed the barbecue, we used the barbecue and we ate great food.

We were a little bit worried about having so many house guests within a short period of time, but Marc and Jen were gracious. I think they understood the reality of our potential visitors before we moved in together. I hope so, anyway.
