English Garden – maybe French Garden?

We've had this idea to have a nicely organized garden (mostly ornamental plants) that you can see off our back deck (the deck at the back of the house - not to be confused with other decks! 😉 )  We aren't sure exactly when we first had the idea, but more...

New Goose Pond

We've envisioned a pond in this spot for the geese for a few years!  The new tool fie now has eaves and drains into the pond.  We are also able to capture some of the water coming down the hill. At first, we weren't sure if it would hold water.  It holds...

Greenhouse – Progress

Greenhouse is coming along!  Finally moved the extra pots to the back deck so we can now walk in there...  We have mostly tomatoes and herbs in there.  The oregano and tarragon overwintered.  The basil is from my mom!

Snow!

Last Friday, we got snow!  It was a bit crazy.  Still lots of trees that are not impressed...  We managed to knock snow off many of the trees around the house and they recovered better!

Big pond

The big pond is so beautiful in the mornings!  Kwesi took some nice pictures the other day.  We also have ducklings on the pond!  Quite a few wild birds nested around there this year.We've seen Buffleheads, Mallards, some we haven't identified.

Kitchen Garden – Coming along!

We spend the long weekend working in the kitchen garden!  We wanted to finish building the raised beds.  We purchased the rough cut wood from Gap Creek (a mill nearby!)  Ten new beds were added to the garden and a new long bed along the west side was...
