First Harvest

We have some crisp and spicy red radishes, fresh from the garden!

A finished project!

 Finally a weekend with two healthy DIYers and 10 hours of dry daylight! Justin and I got our jig on carving up umpteen 2x3s with a fanciful curve and mounting them on the top of the trellis. I sawed, Justin sanded and then we finished the project off with a little edge-easing with the router. All in a day's work.

Around this time last year, we had barely more than a pile of rubble and a big vision for the backyard. But this year, the yard is filling in with fresh flowers and new greenery including some promising looking salad greens in the raised bed. Our apple trees have blossomed and our maples are just leafing out. I can't wait to fill in the bare spots with some new shrubs and perennials.
