our house - as google sees it

its amazing to me the detail that our satellites can ferret out from way out in space.  this is the latest google earth photo of my house.  it was taken sometime in summer of 2009 - as i can tell from what is done and not done in the photo. 

even more amazing is you can see the lattice work on my cucumber trellis up in the garden (2nd bed on the right, light brown smudge).  that is made from 2x2 cedar and, well you can see its there.  to the left of that is a green garden hose.

as you can also tell, i still have a lot of projects to be done around the house - but, its obvious that i had my priorities straight that day.

the boat is hitched to the truck and looks like i just got home from a fishing trip. 

its a good life, no complaints here.

2011 fall color

the trees are getting bigger and thier color is getting better year over year.  downside - those leaves will be hitting the ground and that means more work in the next week or so. 


awesome compost.

last harvest of 2011

this wraps up the 2011 garden  - potatoes.  take a gander at those spuds.  those red ones are huge.  and there is another box full of these babies in the cellar.

the 2012 seed catalogs are on thier way.  i cant wait.

this was last weekends project.  big pile of cuttings that made way for the fence. 

pretty scratched up from all the oak - but its a nice pile of mulch now.

got a lot done, still alot more to go.  if you are lookin' for some work - i can share.

the back fence

its done, but you get to see the bones here.  nice to have this long-on-the-honeydo-list project complete.
