Anyway, here are some of the things we've been up to this past month;
We are in the middle of a garage build. Larry found a great deal for a 24x24 garage kit and bought it. But before we build, we had to move our old "garage" out of the way.
|Larry and Rebekah are adding cross beams and braces so they can jack it up and put the wheels under it to move it.|
|Larry and Rebekah are half way to the new spot! I can't believe we moved it with our small tractor!|
|Just this week we were able to pour the cement pad. You can see the old garage in it's new spot in the background. Hopefully we can get the TranX trailer cleaned out so that we can sell it to help pay for the new garage.|
|My hubby celebrated his birthday last weekend.|
|My Grandpa passed away last month. I will miss him.|
Now on to my garden. I am having huge troubles with the quack grass. This is the first time this ground has tilled up and it is lacking all the nutrients it needs. We added lots of donkey manure and old straw. Next year I'm sure the soil we be better. But, we are getting blessed with plenty of good plants growing.
|At one end of the garden I planted a berry patch. Here are some of the blueberries ripening. I can't wait! We also have Haskap berries, raspberries, blackberries and rhubarb planted there.|
|A zucchini plant. I can't wait for zucchini this year. Otherwise known around here as Trim Healthy Mama pasta.|
|I planted a lot of cabbage this year. I love it fried with bacon, butter, onions and a little garlic. I'm going to cook up some and try freezing it.|
|This is canola. I noticed as it started growing that bugs were eating it. And from the leaves, it looked like it is from the cabbage family. So, I left it growing around my cabbage and so far I don't have any bugs in my cabbage.|
|And finally, some of our apple trees are producing this year. We just had some hail last night though, so I will have to see if there if any damage.|
Now, I'm off to a farm yard sale. I'll post if I find anything wonderful.
