Despite some spring setbacks including late frosts killing off the melons three times and two generations of cucumber and squash decimated by bugs, things are rolling again on the wee homestead. Handy hubby worked hard over his entire six week vacation doing exactly what he loves: “Puttering,” he calls it. He built a fabulous garden shed, a porch addition which will become an outdoor kitchen, spent countless hours in the garden, and so many other projects I had to stop keeping track for personal exhaustion.
A few highlights by photo beat description every time, and save me some effort which will be spent instead this weekend making pesto three ways: basil, cilantro and dill. Also trying to figure out what to do with all the cabbages. Kim chi, sauerkraut and coleslaw are great, but I’ve got to broaden my horizons.
