Deck Update

So the deck part of this project is all done and it wasn't too bad of a project. I pulled all of the railings off and only replaced them on the left hand side. Then I created a step down around the front and right. You'll see some pavers laying around that area which leads me to my next project. I will be removing the grass and the deck will eventually step down onto a patio, but I'm going to wait until the weather cools off a little before I get going on that one! That much digging, and in the heat, is just no fun so it can wait until we get closer to the fall weather and the cooler temps that come with it.

I never thought I would see a gang in my backyard

I was just minding my own business, making some breakfast when I spotted them...their was a GANG in my backyard!!!  OK, OK, so it was a gang of turkeys...I was still surprised

Hope my hens don't get into a gang fight!

I've heard of the Tortoise and the Hare, but never the Turkey and the Hare...I wonder who will win this race

Happy 4th

Hope everyone is enjoying their Holiday, we watched our fireworks last night and spent the day working on the deck. I am definitely making some great progress.

My potted plants are scattered across the ground. Last year I overwintered one of my pepper plants (in the purple pot) as an experiment. If you look closely you will see some bright red peppers, and I have already picked a few this year. So this winter I will definitely take a few more inside

Below, just an update on the kids garden, it's a bit on the wild side, but they are getting some nice blooms
