Bears, Apples and Good Fortune...

A Mother and two cubs came for a night time visit back in November. 

We have heard lots of times pick your apples... 

I had left a few in a small tote on our porch, it was later I had gone to bed when they showed up. 

My wife was up and heard them looking for food. Needless to say it was hard for her to go to sleep after that.

I am grateful the bears didn't do any harm as I am grateful for for family and friends. 

Wishing everyone a happy and fulfilling New Year!

The Last Bed...

This time of year it is nice to have all of the garlic in, just one more bed to go...

It is a new bed and a lot bigger than most of the other beds. I made it on the boulevard and it has taken a lot of energy and time in the end, it is worthwhile.

This is the last of the garlic to be planted around 500.

Inside new work, storage area

This one  warms me up just looking at it

Storage area, shelter, wood tarped area

Getting stuff tidied up

Thanks for dropping by.

Water under the bridge...

It has been a long time since doing a post. I have gone through a few rough patches and so has my wife Wendy. Getting older has taken some adjustments being mindful is a major one. Keeping in a happy productive mindset and not letting yourself go is so important. Being kind and understanding of others is another...
I have been working around the yard and garden and have started to plant garlic for next summer, planing on doing a local garlic festival in Aug. 
Recently tore down a fifty year old shed my neighbor gave me so now have lots of material to replace a shelter last winter brought down.

A young Peliated  came for a visit

The light at the end of the tunnel

Some of the wood from the old shed.

I am very rusty on the photos and will hope on my next time...

Spring has Sprung...

The local paper reporedt that a meter of snow has fallen and records have been broken. What a winter it has been and there are still piles of snow here and there.

I have seen signs of Spring - Snow Drops, buds on the Lilacs, rain and a return to our more normal coastal conditions.

Winters last fling knocked down an old storage area. It took a while to clean the mess up, now I need to make/find places for the displaced tools and equipment.

My neighbor installed a live edge Maple counter top and I gave him a hand, it was a very heavy slice of beautiful wood.

Looking forward to trying my new tiller soon. 

Some shots of the big leaf Maples I had to fell, luck I had some help from my neighbour. Saved 7 big logs for future projects.

Top picture is the shed area all cleaned up. The snow is melting and Buddy is very happy to put his feet on the grass again !

Thanks for the visit.

Winter Wonderland...

This has been one of the all time deep snow winters I have seen. 

Last night was the most snow fall yet. 

I am grateful that my neighbor has plowed our driveway many times, it sure saves the back.

A little rusty on the photos, its been awhile since I posted.
