Jim got two loads of laundry washed and dried today. The first load was dry by lunch time. The weather was perfect, sunny and with low humidity.

The pears are coming along. I can't wait to taste one later this summer.

The green beans and onions are doing well. There are flowers starting to form on the beans so beans aren't too far away.

One of our neighbors was jogging by and noticed us splitting wood and offered us a load of poplar logs. Some are dry enough to burn this winter so our wood supply just got a lot better for this year and next.

What luck! We were driving by Jim's brother's house and discovered his neighbor had some pine logs he didn't want. We split wood for about 8 hours this weekend.

The potatoes are in one long line along the east end of the garden. We have 40 hills of potatoes that will be ready some time in July. If you stop by for a visit, you can take some home with you!

I planted this tomato next to the garage around the first of April. We may get tomatoes by the end of June.....

These flowers may come back year after year. They look really beautiful next to the garage.

The oriental poppy was really gorgeous this year.

Jim made a hat rack and coat rack from black walnut lumber from Brown's farm in Michigan. Looks good and works well!

It's going to be a good year for peaches on Mahoney's farm.
