First and Formost, I'm please to announce that Beauregard will be returning for another season....... and Beauregard would like to officially welcome everyone to the 2011 Gardening Season !!

I blame the Mel's Mix Pbucket

In additional news, I'm happy to anounce that it's official ...... Mel's Mix will make anything grow better.

Without going into a lot of detail ..... after a lot of unsucessful attempts over 10+ years of trying everything imaginable .... my wife and I are expecting our first child in July 2011.

My appologies for not being on the forums much over the last few weeks, but we didn't "discover" the pregancy until almost 12 weeks (you don't suspect it after your told you can't get pregnant affraid ) & historically we've suffered 2nd trimester losses over the years .
Unfortunately we ran into our same "challenges" on this pregnacy at the 18 week point (my wife had a bout with cancer that required the removal of some necessisary equipment for the child bearing process). Luckily, we had scrambled and gotten all of our duck's in a row in the six weeks. The dreaded event came last Friday (while we were at the high-risk DR .... how lucky is that?), and we had my wife into surgery within 2 hours.
We found out this Wednesday that the surgery was incredibly sucessfull & although my wife will be in bed for the balance of the pregnacy; mama and baby are doing great & we now have our best chance every for a positive outcome and healthy baby.

So although I've becomed hooked on SFG, my pictures/updates and sarcastic/cheezy/bad humor may be a little less frequent in the 2011 season ....... but it's for a good cause.

.... and yes, apparently everything grows better with Mel's Mix ..... even babies (so ladies .... I'd suggest wearing gloves while putting MM in your SFG box ...ya-never-know...LOL) Smile

CONGRATS, and best wishes. I would advise lots of books, magazines, crossword puzzles, what ever your wife enjoys, to keep her mind busy so she can rest easy and not be too anxious while awaiting the arrival of your bundle of joy-and adventure.

Got tears (of joy) in my eyes. Congrats.

And I'll heed the warning about MM and gloves. Shocked

Acara,
Congratulations to you and your better half.
I, too, suggest lots of books and magazines, especially the gardening kind so she can advise and join in with you with your 2011 garden.
Such happy news!

Best of luck to you, and one incredible story. I admire the fortitudes in people like you that have had struggles with starting families. I have my fingers crossed that this will be everything you've anticipated, expected, and prayed for over the years. May all your future tears be tears of joy!

I've grown to know your sarcasm in the short time I've been around here, and must admit your posts are very welcome. So, anytime you can pop in, it will be appreciated.

Happy trails, sir, until we meet again.

Ouch ... sorry for the bad news on the TT's.... I should probably soften my delivery of "bad news" on stuff like that.

I do design, application and loading engineering as part of my job ... so "no, that won't work" and "if you do that, someones gonna get hurt, or we're gonna get sued", come out of my mouth 20+ times a day at work. Very easy to forget to "flip-the-switch" on the forums & give a better answer than "no", "wont work", or "the math doesn't support your design" Embarassed .

Easy for me to forget that not everyone is in the design-phase of some of their garden projects & no matter how helpful the advice from the peeps on the forum is intended .... sometimes its "bad news" and requires a lot of extra work.

Just smack me next time I do that Very Happy

Congratulations!!!!!!!from the bottom of my heart. I have also been there and done that. Except I did had a child after marriage but took 10 years to have another and never able to have another after that. I wasn't suppose to be able to have my second child, so he is my miracle baby. I completely understand your excitement. God Bless.
