They are harvesting the cabbages in the fields behind our cabin. When the trucks pull the wagon loads down our road to the packing shed, leaves and cabbages fall out. When we go on our morning 4 mile walks, we take bags and pick up cabbage leaves for Wilbur our pig and from time to time whole cabbages from the road for us humans--hence road kill cabbage. When Robyn and Ron were here, we enjoyed many a delicious road kill cabbage meal--yum, yum. Here's a reenactment for the camera of the collection from today's walk.
This weekend we had a great visit from Ron and Robyn on their way to their condo. They came to check on the workmanship on our log cabin. They say we passed. Of course we had to visit the beach and Joe's and Sage's families had to come have some Mexican food fun with them. Summer even decorated a cake--her special skill. This cake was for Mary's birthday.
Our quest to "use it up, wear it out, make do, or do without" continues as we add finishing touches to our log cabin. We've been recycling the dance floor for Chrissy and Debbie's wedding as shelves. You've already seen the various closets and book shelves. The latest recycled sheet of plywood finished up the mudroom/laundry room and converted a wardrobe that formerly housed a TV in Joe's condo to shelves to hold t-shirts, work clothes, swimming suits, and pants. In the mud room notice too the drying rack with socks that folds out from the wall like grandma Buckley's.
