Why? my blog title "Better2me"

As a woman, mother, and wife my first instinct is to take care of those around me. I nurture those I love in many ways through out the day, but sometimes find myself neglecting me. Recently I realized that I need to nurture myself as well. So this blog is about ME!!!!! What fills my heart; my simple life of kids, husband, animals, home, and creativity. For being better2me leads me to be better to those I love.

Fruits of my Labor

Every year I start out with the best intentions. I am going to grow soooo much. I start my seedling and nurture them daily as they grow. I get the garden ready and plant my tiny plants.....then we leave for vacation or Mammoth and the heat wave arrives when we are gone and decimates that which I had tended so carefully. So this year I decided to plant many things in pots and will wait until fall to plant a full garden, meanwhile I enjoy watching the fruits of my labor.

1/2 my chicken coop where the adult chickens live; Gladys, Buffy and Mabel.

The lower yard with my garden, barn, pool and pups.

My pizza oven with grapes .

My "pond" with fish and Turtle Turtle.....

One thing that comes back year after year in my garden whether I get to it or not is my artichoke plant that is now huge and productive.

Fresh Pea sprouts, nothing better then fresh peas!

Eggs from my chickens.
