An auger’s abode

Manuel and his cohort, he who shall not be named, descended on Knight tonight, hungry for a few projects.  I’d been planning to whip up a stand for Bob’s auger but it was down on the list.  Luckily the slave labour arrived and I was able to put my plan into action.  This auger is a ‘bitch’ to get on to the tractor when it isn’t suspended so with this project now complete, taking the post-hole digger on and off will be a breeze.  On to the next project!  Enjoy the sunshine!

At long last…

A little late but we got the garden planted today.  The weather hasn’t been hot but it sure has been good growing for established plants; our grass and fruit trees are going wild.  I think this could be a banner year for fruit.  Our summer garden has quite a variety this year including zucchini, crookneck, spaghetti and kuri squash; rutabega; leeks and red and white onions; carrots including bolero and flyaway; beets, tomatoes, lettuce and rhubarb.  In the orchard this year, we have four varieties of apples, two pears, three plums and a cherry.  When it cools, we’ll plant some peas, broccoli and cauliflower.  Our herb garden will have oregano, cilantro, garlic, parsley, chives and basil to name a few.  It’s shaping up to be a great year in the garden and now that hydro has picked up the ol’ fridge and we’ve made a pet food storage unit of the ol’ freezer, we have a lot more room for preserves, canning and freezing.  I just have to finish the article on root cellars now!  Stay tuned to see what happens!

Ch, ch, ch, changes…

For the last, well..forever, we’ve been running multiple businesses and doing computer and office work from the corner of a table in our spare room.  Whilst Josée was in California, I decided enough was enough – time to get some proper office space created.  The challenge was to make it clean and tidy whilst taking up a minimal amount of space.  Some time on the trusty Ikea website helped me find the perfect solution.  The table top desks are not attached so we can move them should we need; they balance on top of the storage towers.  The wall mounted shelves include six blue bins into which we can store a variety of items and the combination cork/whiteboard will be handy for notes and reminder.  I especially like the lights; $8 and they’re solar!  We’ve now got a great little space to work on our many projects!
