Farmer Dave

Here is my farmer husband's pride and joy - his garden.... He's not really a farmer, except for his garden on the side of our house. What he is really hoping for is a place one day where he can grow until his heart's content.

This is his long row of tomato's. There are 10 plants here and 5 others spread around the yard. No ripe tomato's yet, but hopefully next week.

Here is a zucchini from the garden. These things are prolific! They just keep coming until the plant finally least that's been our experience. And watch them carefully; if you wait a day, before you know it you will have a zuch the size of a small baseball bat!

Here's my honey, the farmer himself....husband and father extraordinaire...Dave Teter

Introducing Diesel-Bob

Since this is a Teter blog, I thought I should introduce you to the various members of our family. Let's start with the newest and most demanding member... our dog Diesel. He is 8 months old and a Border Collie/Lab mix with something else in there too. Needless to say, if you know dogs, you know we have our hands full. Both Labs and Bordie Collies are "active" breeds and he is no exception. But like both breeds, he is also protective and loyal. The only minor downfall is that most of his loyalty is lavished upon me! For example, last night we got caught up watching a movie and lost track of where he was. When we went looking for him, we found him on my side of the bed just lying there as if he had full right to be there! When David gets up in the morning (he's the very early riser - between 5 & 5:30) Diesel will follow him out. In an attempt to let me sleep a while longer, Dave will close the door to our room. What does this loyal creature do? He lays outside the bedroom door and wimpers...for me. If Dave puts him outside, he comes to the window near my side of the bed and does the same thing. We have decided it is time for puppy training. Our last dog Sierra spoiled us - she came fully trained. Now it's time to get this one whipped into shape. Poor thing...he just doesn't know what's coming.

Blogging 101

I am officially now a blogger. I never thought I'd be one. Just like I thought email was weird and cell phones frivolous, I really couldn't figure out this blog thing. Then my sister and her family, and my sis-in-law (with my brother and little Kadence of course) moved away, far away! Blogging is how I keep up with what's happening in their lives and still feel connected to them. So really, this blog is for all of them, so they can feel a little more connected to us too.

I hope you enjoy the first pictures. My niece and nephew, Matt and Trinity are with us for the weekend. We braved the fog-like smog from the fires that are roasting our beautiful state like a marshmallow and went to the zoo this morning. Smog and all, we had a great time! We ended the day making homemade ice cream and playing water games in the back yard. That's what you do when you live where it's 100 plus degrees in the summer and you don't have a pool! Much to my daughter's dismay.
