Square Foot Garden

This method of gardening caught my eye, its evidently been around a while, brother Paul even has a book on it stored somewhere along with his personal collection of "Fermenting Journal".

The pictures show a progression as this project develops, like myself its still a work in progress.
Incorporating a vertical trellis to grow climbing things like cukes, pole beans, even some tomatoes.
After trying out the system we liked it and decided to put in some larger 8' beds for our canning produce.
This is the size of our layout for now, so far it has exceeded all expectations and has really lived up to its claim to grow things, a new bed or two seems to spring up every couple of days!

Some people have written in to see where you can get a compost barrel like this, Bruce says it looks a lot like one that he used to have which was somehow lost in the move to Elmore.

Ducks in a row

On a Quest to find and photograph a fawn, I was led to an area where some Cute Chicks were hanging out.
On one of my mornings while sitting perfectly still, I was rewarded by having this Blue Winged Teal drop by and pose for the camera.
This usually shy Common Snipe was another surprise he got up close and personal.
This Canada Goose is gettiing ready to hurdle that log!
Pink Lady Slipper's were noted on a hike in the Adirondacks.

I think I found my Fawns, the trouble is these two are still carrying them around .
