hey kids....i have received a few comments and several emails with people wondering whether our river is in the front yard or the back yard....so hopefully this post will help with that.
first up though....look at this majestic early evening sky:
allrighty - so here is our front yard:
we are high up on a hill and that blue you see down below is called Strachan's Brook. it feeds into our river, the Framboise River. Strachan's Brook is about 250metres (about 1/5 of mile from our house).
this is a pic of our backyard. our river, The Framboise River is about 400metres (1/4 of a mile from our house).
here i used the zoom function on the camera.
so no matter if we are in the front yard, or the backyard, we can always look at crystal clear blue water. but we love our river...and own 200ft of waterfront on it. no matter, there's hardly any people that have land that extends to the river.
here's a google image that might help you better understand.
you can see our house, the waterfront and the blue dot thing points out Strachan's Brook and shows how it empties into our beautiful river.
i hope that helps with any confustion. if not, just ask in the comments.
anyway, jambaloney found these local sausages on for real cheap several months ago and bought a bunch of them. we just can't believe how tasty they are!?!?!!? not too spicey but just spicy enough. they are deelish!
today was supposed to be sunny all day but the clouds didn't clear out until around noon. ever since noon, it has been gorgeous and sunny and we worked our butts off. jambaloney made me some more dirt for starting more seeds, wheedwhacked all around the backyard, the boneyard (his "junk" area) and made a nifty mulcher using the wheedwhacker and a garbage can - he'll have more on that later. kids - can you say "woohoo! MULCH!". i know that you can. i topped up all of my little brassicas - like 40 of them!!! started up big pots of wasabi arugala, gala mache, watercress and edible nasturtiums. filled up another 76 styrafoam cups full of awesome, sifted dirt and come tomorrow - i'll be planting a whole nuther pile of herbs, cucumbers, zuchhinis, cucumbers, squash and melons - wahooey!
and after a long day of work, i fed the man some deeeeelicious home-made loaded cheeseburgers!
one last pic of the awesome sky from last night. try not to pay attention to all of the junk collecting around vandura - bahahahahah!
we had a great day and we hope that you did too!
