House Update (and Applesauce)
Check out the siding, the gutters, and the rain barrels!
Here's a view of some of the gardens at the back of the house. All of these are just transplants that have been moved (yet again!) to what we hope will be their official homes!
We bought some new plants for this east facing wall--three gooseberry plants. I'm embarrassed to say I've never even tasted a gooseberry, but apparently they are cousins to currants.
This is the west side of the addition/garage. The transplants are back in place and have been mulched.
And, last, but not least, it is applesauce season. The ida reds were brought in and were expensive this year, but they are big and beautiful!
(I have to add a disclaimer here. I help with the applesauce, but for all the rest of the work shown in this post I am just the consultant. Martin has done all the transplanting, and mulching, and wall building, and wiring... I think he's amazing!)
