I spent most of the day up at the patch mucking about in the garden. The tomatoes are in the ground, including the 'hard to find' Caspian Pink variety. My fingers are crossed in hopes that "Late Blight' will be a non issue this year. The Simpson ( bolt resistant) lettuce transplanted well as did the eggplant.

The 'Fancy Fema' arrived mid afternoon. It is very very small! One of the bedrooms is smaller that my closet and the other two aren't much larger.

More Like a Farm

The barn is really starting to take shape and that is a very good thing. Cement was poured and brushed in the central aisle. The floor drain is in place and will make cleaning the barn so much easier.

The garden is looking a tad better as I continue to hand weed and add new plants as I am able. The highbush blueberries from Project Native are looking very healthy. Today I hope to plant two Cornus Florida and two Clethra.

The picture of the 'dozer' shows Dale removing the top soil from the house site late yesterday afternoon. Looks like things are really starting to take shape housewise. We have chosen a contractor, FINALLY ! This has been a very long and somewhat difficult process and we are both mightly relieved to have made the decision.

Barn Progress

Syd and I went up to the patch on Sunday afternoon to deliver some conduit left over from the Indoor Arena rehab project. Bruce is going to make grills to put between each stall. I hope that the aisle floor will be poured soon! We also staked out temporary pasture on the east side of the driveway. I hope that Brady can get started fairly soon. He did take up a couple loads of T post and a bunch of pressure treated corner posts.

I picked up five gallons of semi transparent stain at RK Miles to be used to stain the barn trim and siding. In my haste I neglected to pick up a couple of brushes. Tomorrow.
