‘Tis the Season

After such a busy summer of sharing our yard landscaping progress with you, we have been quite the slackers with posts for the fall and winter. Unfortunately, not a lot of work that we can get done in the yard with the ground frozen solid and the temperatures below freezing. But that is ok, I…

Tipping the Scales

The headway we have been making has come to an end for the season. The weather has turned, the ground is freezing, and all of our next steps need little-to-no-precipitation and an above-freezing temperature to continue. So we have cleaned up, buttoned up and closed down the yard for the season. Which means, we have…

We be Jammin’

So my fall creations from the garden continue…sort of. These two delicious recipes ingredients came from someone else’s gardens, but they are tasty none-the-less, and are getting me prepared for when we have our fruit trees. Our plan is to have peaches, pears, apricots, apples and cherries. I would love some citrus trees, but they…

Strawberry Fields Forever

We had another great year with our strawberries. I wasn’t a huge fan of strawberries until we started to grow them ourselves and I realized what a strawberry should truly taste like. Store bought are just a hint of what a strawberry really should look and taste like. Our strawberries are big, juicy and red…

Tunneling

Since K did so much digging and work on his day off, I figured I should go and contribute to the fantastic progress we were making. I decided to dig in all the post holes so that this week we can work on cutting the posts and getting them cemented in. We will still have…

Excavator K

Well, K has been at it again. He once again stayed home on his day off and put himself into overdrive this time. He didn’t just finish digging one more bed/terrace level, he instead spent 5 hours moving earth and managed to get all of the beds on the one side of our yard cut…

Diggers

K skipped fishing on his day off…mostly because the weather was supposed to be rainy and grey, and instead did a little digging in the yard. Since the weather is ideal for some work that would make a person a little sweaty, K figured he could get the next bed dug out for me. The…

Wet Weather Update

We are back from another amazing, memorable trip. This time we decided to stay in our explore part of our own country and visited beautiful, serene Newfoundland. It was definitely one of our favourite trips to date. We were spoiled with sunny, warm weather for the majority of our trip with only a few rainy…

Hooked

K has talked about building some fishing rod racks for a while now. We have enough rods that it certainly would make sense to build a few. We have a few nails in the wall of the shop that we hang some of the rods on, and then some go into cases and are laid…

Trimmed

We are once again going to head on vacation right when our garden is at it’s peak of producing. We went on vacation about the same time back on 2016. But it is worth it, getting to explore the world. Last time we did a 10 day bike trip through Bavaria with my parents, this…
