This is lettuce growing in our cold frame..... planted it last fall, and will pick some for a salad tonight!!!
|Will be nice to have some fresh produce in February!!!!|
|We try to be as environmentally friendly as possible, and part of that is composting. We compost EVERYTHING!!! Including a large amount of shredded leaves which are in pile in the gardens and various areas of the woods.|
|The Hellebores (Lenten Rose) will be blooming in a couple weeks!!!!|
|Daffodils are just starting to peek through the snow.... won't be long now!!!!|
|This is a seed pod from one of the many Japanese tree peonies that our beloved Ann planted when she lived here!!!|
|This is what the bloom looks like around Memorial Day.... they are usually about 8-10" across!!!|
|This is a much more flattering shot of our little guy Henry!!!!|
|Keep in mind, we bought the home as-is with everything that was left after the estate sale. That means everything!!!!|
Things are looking pretty good, even though we are still using the plywood counter tops. We are seriously considering concrete and looking at some local contractors to do that.
Well, I'll keep everyone updated on the kitchen progress, hopefully new counter tops in the next month or so. Will be anxious to making some more strides towards completion.
Hope everyone has had a good weekend!
