Deuce Cities Henhouse

I'm sure I'm not the only one who has felt an array of feelings since quarantine began. Most of the time I fall somewhere between a complete lack of motivation, and sheer boredom. And then every once in awhile I'll get a sudden burst of energy and I'll do all the things all at once. That is what happened once I started gaining momentum on the new sauna area of our front side yard at the cabin... READ MORE

My June Garden in July

We’ve spent the better part of the last 4 months at the cabin. We head home from time-to-time to check the mail, check on the neighborhood and mow the lawn. I’ve been missing my garden in a major way. I look forward to spring more than any other time of year.

The timer was capable of having two different zones, so I ran a hose to the front and back yard and had set the timer to water daily for 10 minutes early in the morning. It worked, sorta.

My (Very Tardy) May Garden

Geez! What is wrong with me! All this summertime business is interrupting my work flow. I took these photos on May 31st, I swear. I love this time of year in the garden because things change so rapidly and quickly and it is so fun to watch and be a part of. If only the weeds didn’t want to grow as fast as all my perennials.
