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…

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…

Breaking Ground

Jostling jugs of water up and down our hill didn’t seem like the best way to get water to our plants. Last year we had about a quarter of the plants that we do this year and it wasn’t so bad. K and I would spend an hour every night before bed giving our plants…
