Finishing Fences

It has finally happened, I have finished the fence that we built back in April. It only took 6 months, but at least I got it done before the winter hit and our 2021 landscaping season came to a close. I actually built the last piece of our fence back in May, and wrote about…

September Comparisons

We seem to have returned to our normally programmed schedule for September weather. It has started getting cooler and the garden is showing it. Some of our plants have wound down in production while others are still pumping out delicious fruits and vegetables. We have been removing some of the sections as they finish, while…

Finishin’ It

Well, we did it! We got the first wall filled and wired shut. Keeping with the trend of not checking our supplies as we have been working on all of this, we realized that the “slim-pickings” of the rock pile was not going to allow us to finish filling the wall. In realizing that, I…

Buildin’ It

As you know it has taken a bit of time to get our ducks in a row and we have had a few setbacks, including personal motivation issues in getting our new walls built, but now we finally seem like we are on our way. We got the post holes dug, delay. We got the…

Cold Air Kisses & Harvest Wishes

Diggin’ It

The weather has cooled, which means that it is time to get to work and get some final projects done before the snow flies. Last year it snowed on Oct 26, which is early for our area, however using that as a deadline, we have a little over a month and a half to complete…

Dreams to Reality

It has been an exciting summer and we have seen some of our yard dreams become reality. The privacy of the new fence was a huge step towards the yard we had hoped to have, which would be a small oasis of privacy and relaxation. Although we are in a residential neighbourhood rather than in…

Pretty Plants

Things on the gardening, landscaping and building front have slowed down as seems to be usual for August. The garden is rolling and full, and continuing to produce delicious vegetables that we have been enjoying in so many new recipes. It is currently still too hot to do any landscaping, but this week is finally…

200 Ramblings

WOWZA! This is the 200th rambling post that I have written. I am so glad that so many of you continue to enjoy our fumbling and bumbling through landscaping our yard, and have now also been sucked into reading about our favourite garden recipes as well as some of the other hobbies and projects we…

Bees Knees, Pretty Ladies & Crawlies

As a kid, I always thought only bees were pollinators and if we ever lost them, then we would be completely doomed because we would have no food. Luckily we have a lot of pollinators out there, bees are just the best a what they do. As I continue to watch the bugs in the…
