Sometimes grandma wakes up in the morning with the announcement of a bright idea she got in the middle of the night. Of course, I shudder a bit as I know it will be a "simple" project for me. This week her idea was that we needed to build a butterfly/herb garden for all the plants she has been storing behind the shed for the last 2 years waiting for the cabin to get finished. She even had a master plan in mind. So here you can see grandpa digging the fence posts and the view from the dining room of the finished first stage. We'll post more as we get ready for the butterflies to move in.

We've been watching the cabbage fields grow for the last two months as we look out the windows to the west. As a reminder, here is what it looked like as the crews planted the fields the beginning of February and what it looked like as they harvested the fields this last week towards the end of April. They may be using some machinery but it still is a people intensive process. They have already gone through the fields three times cutting out heads of cabbage and tossing them into the wagon and as you can see, they still have plenty of cabbages left to harvest in another pass through or two.

We just send off the last set of workers who have come to make our cabin a great place to visit so that this isn't what will greet you when you come to visit.

The family reunion activities shifted to Joe's condo for sea shell collecting and other fun.

Last week we sent home our gardener, electrician, and floor laying worker bees and welcomed our mechanical workerbees to help fix up the log cabin.
