The cold frame we built has produced a great crop of lettuce.

We have as many strawberries as we can eat this year!

The peaches are looking good!

We added 5 new blueberry plants because we never get enough blueberries.

The cabbages and brussels sprouts are really growing well this year.

The whole garden is looking good!

Phase 1 of the sweetcorn for 2016.  Should be ready near the end of June.

The Clematis has never looked this good.

Jim parked his Mustangs next to each other for Labor Day.

Shelly's new hobby - hydroponic gardening.  The lettuce is so small you can barely see it!

Phase 2 of our solar panel project is now complete.  We should make all of the electricity we need with the addition of the new panels.

 The grapes were getting out of control so we built a grape arbor for them.


5 of the raised beds are planted with potatoes.

 We have now produced over 10 mega watts of electricity!

 Lots of blossoms on the apple trees means we will have apples again this year - can't wait!

 We planted some leftover potatoes (the small ones you can't peel) and they are looking good.

We are having a nice radish crop so far this year.

Rob and Jim getting the engine for the '67 Mustang hoisted.

In she goes

and goes

and she is in!

Jim's new toy.

We had a new driveway put in this past fall - makes snow removal much easier!

And it's easier to get up the driveway into the garage.
