A Motley, Wonderful Crew

From an amazing wife, two "hey, Dad, we haven't helped you in a long time" sons, to a high schooler in need of comunity service hours, to an intern (I have an intern?!), to a neighborhood straggler who just joined in because "it's been a long time since I've exercised," a LOT was accomplished today - thanks to this motley, wonderful crew!

Thank you, Amie, Nathan, Isaiah, Joshua, Trejin, and Sharod - you helped us out SO much.

The summer garden's swales and pathways are finally "in."

There is an art to this.

Finally, some shelving in the greenhouse.

And the beginnings of a more permanent fence in the backyard.

And the scorched wood loaded into the Suburban, ready for disposal.

And the siding on the house...we'll you can't do it all. (We did get to starter strips installed...victory!)

Too Cold for Summer Veggies!

It's been WAY too long since I've posted to the blog; LOTS going on. I'll let you know about it soon.

But here's what's important for today: Due to the cold and the necessity of protecting your heat-loving summer veggies, I'm not going to be selling seedlings at The Grain Mill this morning. But I'm planning on being there next Friday and Saturday from 10am - 2pm, and hopefully the weather will be better then!

If anyone would like to drop by some time this week and look at plants at your convenience, feel free to contact me and we can set up a time.
