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…

Carrot Bandit

We have started to pluck our tasty carrots out of the garden, even the multi-coloured ones which have been a bit of a disappointment. All of them are finally a good size and are fantastic as a side for dinner, dipped in a bit of hummus. K went to hand water a few plants when…

Landing Pad

We just got back from our annual trip to see an airshow. It was a fantastic show again, despite the rain and some low clouds, the airport did a fantastic job of filling the spaces that were created due to certain planes being unable to fly. Every year that we go there is a guy…

Doesn’t BUG us

Being nerdy geeks, one of the things we love watching in our garden is all the different bugs, insects and critter life that we have living along side us. They are our friendly…and sometime not so friendly…neighbours. Usually we find lots of critters scurrying through the garden beds, burrowing homes between plants and finding ways…

Hot Stuff!

We have grown many peppers in our garden. Sweet, jalapeño, Thai chilies, hot Hungarian and now banana peppers. We have also pickled most of the peppers we have grown, with the exception of the sweet peppers. They are all really good, but so far the best ones for pickling have been the hot Hungarian. I…

Fresh Food

I love this point of time in a garden. The plants have grown, and they are now all producing delicious food. Sure, certain plants have been producing for a while now, but at this point all of the plants are finally sharing their bounty. The strawberries are always the first plant to start producing. This…

Cornerstone

We have finally finished filling our newest wall, and the largest one yet. This is also a record for us on how fast we have been able to completely fill a wall. Our newest method of wiring the cages has immensely cut down on the time that it takes, as well as the size of…

Water Optimization – Update

Our privacy is a key part of our dream yard. We were lucky to find a house that we loved with a property that is manageable for the two of us and will provide us a personal paradise. One of the things we loved about this house was the private upper yard so that we…

Pathfinder

The heat has finally hit. I feel I may have jinxed it with my last post! It was 30* yesterday and 37* today. I guess I should enjoy it while I can, it is supposed to be back down to the mid-20’s by the middle of the week. There is no enjoying the heat though…
