So, my mother just informed me that there may have been a few questions as far as how I've been doing down here. I have been rather behind on these posts, so we'll do a quick catch up to where we are now! Photo style!
|This was taken in early spring. With birthday money from Ninna (Peter's mom), I bought myself an electric kettle--which was a life-changing purchase! I was so inspired, that I then created this coffee/tea area. Underneath (and hidden) is Kitty's litter box.|
|It comes equipped with grinder, elecric kettle, all of the teas (stored in the little drawers and in the boxes), hot cocoa, coffee, french press, and tea pot!|
|The yard--full of seedlings! But there's the blackberry "bush" in the background!|
|Satcha enjoying the space.|
|Our front planter--an explosion of perennials that I planted last year. I basically dumped a whole seed packet (that's what it said to do on the package!!!)--and it worked!|
|The only big planter on our street.|
|From the front.|
|Things were just so happy to be alive! It was a "long" winter...for here (nothing compares to long Minnesota winters! I know, I know!!)--but we did have quite a few things die off that shouldn't have.|
|A closer look at the GIANT BLACKBERRY BUSH/VINE/THING THAT IS TAKING OVER THE YARD!! (In a good way--yum!)|
|Harvest time! Notice that the giant blackberry bush produced giant blackberries!|
|Here they are! We could fill an entire nice-sized bowl every day at its peak.|
|It even started creeping into the alley, which I thought was pretty cool.|
|Here are the beans! The iron grate was saved from the original rat-infested shed that was in our backyard. There's nothing better than repurposing!|
|An example of how big these blackberries were. This one wasn't even the biggest one!|
Aaaaaand...that just about brings us up to date! There is a door project that I still have yet to post, but that will come someday. Plus a whole bunch that is happening with our other property. I guess I should probably post a few photos of that sometime soon as well...but I can't give everything away at once, so you'll have to wait! Oh, the anticipation!
Anyway, thanks for reading, folks! Until next time...
