Angel and Oliver hanging out in the outdoor dog run last summer.
Remember all of the hard work John did last Spring to build up my raised gardens in the front yard, here is a photo from last year? Well we are going to move them to the north garden because mostly we get more sunlight in the back yard than we do in the front yard.
Soooooo, today began the long process of clearing out the north garden, John removed the fence posts, and the chicken wire fencing while I cleaned up all of the trash that blew into our yard over this past winter. I also organized all of the fence posts, etc., and otherwise acted as his runner for tools and such, while Angel and Oliver hung out in the outdoor kennel.
Hopefully next weekend I'll have new photos to share as we embark on this new journey, but we are both in agreement that we love the raised beds and this is the direction we want to go, that and a quarter or half CSA share which we need to make a decision on in the next week or so. I will say that I was excited to see that my raised beds are completely thawed out, a minor miracle considering this years winter and the fact that we still have ice in the back yard!

This is the hurry up and pick out those hexagons stare, he finally gave up and went to sleep. He really wants to play with my fabrics, and trims which wouldn't be so bad if he wasn't so insistent on shredding everything.
Said hexagons, the smaller ones were dyed with natural dyes the deep red obtained using a turkey red recipe, the blue using indigo. See my natural dyeing blog for more information.

I started to feel sick on Sunday, my early Monday morning it was obvious I had picked up noro virus someplace. I'm only starting to feel slightly better today. This is what Oliver accomplished while I was holing up in our bedroom with the cats. He's been busy.
