Weekly Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!

Maple and I have been productive little worker bees. Guess who has been installing plumbing, clearing the area for the outdoor chicken coop/run, making plans to get wire/netting/coop from Kristen, collecting sap, chopping wood, prepping starts to move outdoors and walking the dogs every night? This intrepid couple.

We were planning on planting potatoes in this bed, so we had entirely lined it with foam (collected from the Transfer Site) to help insulate. Voles and dogs have played havoc with the foam and we had decided to put the coops/run down there anyway, so we’ve spent some time digging out frozen foam. On the bright side? This dirt is AWESOME!

BTW: I bought the “A Beautiful Mess” app (and then I went a little crazy and bought all the add-ons as well) and I LOVE IT. It’s pretty much made for hipster ladies who want to draw on their photos like a little kid. It’s also fun watching which ones of my friends have bought the “A Beautiful Mess” app…let’s just say we’ve all got a couple things in common (fashion, taking photos, following “A Beautiful Mess”…)

Whilst wrestling this table out of the ice pit it spent the winter in, Maple accidentally broke off one of the legs. We just wedged a piece of lumber under one end and now it’s holding up just fine.

The weather the past few nights have just been lovely – in the mid-60’s and sunny. Spring is finally, finally here and Summer is just around the corner!
