Jim finished a trellis for the Clematis.  Should provide morning shade for the front porch.

We are ready for a party!  Jim got all of the tables and chairs out last week.

The exterior basement walls are insulated with spray foam in anticipation of drywall soon!

A new coneflower planted last year is thriving in its new location.

First tomatoes of the season - June 3rd!!

The new (to us) tractor.

We should have sweet corn in a couple of weeks!

Transplanted 7 dozen strawberry plants from the old strawberry beds.
Onions below with zucchini and squash on the other side of the steps.

Mulched the new lanscaping - now ready for flowers.

Potatoes!  Should be ready by July.

Jim's friend John left us this beautiful buffet for our front entry way.
Our first potato harvest of the season from small leftover potatoes planted inside in February and then moved to the deck when the weather turned warm.
