So much has been going on I haven’t had time to blog!

The yard has eaten our lives…

Hummingbird-nest

But it seems to be bringing forth new life.

About a month ago they crop circle looked like this…

Some corn,peas, tomatoes, squash and the root veggies we put in way back when, right?

Well now it looks like this…

Our root veggies are ready to be harvested.

I tried a couple of weeks ago, but it was too soon…

Not the best photo of me, but with the wonders of modern technology…

As for the squash…

I always thought squash was more vine like, but I guess not.

As for the corn and peas…

They are coming right along!

Our berries started slowly,

But the blackberries are on their way.

As are the blueberries…

This will be a challenge to leave alone.

And the pomegranate is trying to get in on the action.

Sadly we can’t let the fruit trees fruit this year as it will only harm their growth, so we will be snipping these off.

In other news something got at the pond again, we may be netting it up.

We are also thinking about a second “pond” to filter “grey water” for the garden.

Finally I think we are having someone come out to talk solar to us, at least for the hot tub at first.

I have so much more to write, but It won’t all fit in one post.

Best wishes for the day, and many thanks to those that made it so!

      You wish you had more space. You have there what to me looks as a garden the size of our province of Utrecht, and you want more space.

      You are insatiable!!
