Boundaries

The weather is teasing us with thoughts of spring and getting to work in the yard. Not that I am in a huge rush for spring, we are still enjoying some of our winter sports, but at the same time, with the weather being mild, the snow leaving our yard and the birds chirping away,…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Carefully Planned Chaos

I love that we decided to adventure into building our own paradise and our dream home. The amount of skills we have learned on this adventure so far has been significant, and it continues to grow. That being said…we are still by no means even close to a professional, or event good at some of…

Wired x2

Jumping, rolling, digging and chewing are Basil’s favourite things to do in the back yard. In the last month we have had our hands full with this funny little girl, but she is proving to be the perfect fit with our family. Luckily the growing season is over, or we would have much bigger problems…
