It was another busy weekend here at Troll Bridge Farm. The deck project is nearly complete....
I13 and V lay deck planks.
J16 is also hard at work. Putting in spacers.
Not at all deck related... How many butterflies can you count?
The new and improved? view from the orchard.
Back by popular demand: Sunflower Moulin Rouge.
The boys take a short break on the new deck.
The beginnings of a pergola!
V thinks they will be able to finish the deck tomorrow. All that is left is to attach the railing pieces and finish the pergola. We sat out on the deck this evening and enjoyed the cool weather that has arrived (at least for a bit).
J16 and I took a short break this afternoon and went over to the local orchard to ask about our apples. The orchardist was stumped. They aren't any apple he is familiar with, which reinforces our idea that this is a lucky, random seedling. My parents stopped by for a bit this afternoon as well (on their way back from visiting my uncle- Mom's brother- who had broken a hip a few weeks ago) and they thought the apples were good as well.
The children only have a few days left before school begins. They go back to school on Thursday. They will have two days of school to ease back in before the weekend. For me, it is back to work as usual tomorrow. I'll probably have to can some tomatoes tomorrow evening. We'll see.
I hope you all have a great week.
