Blueberry Bed

Here’s shot of small but growing blueberry bed. Our friends, the Cassady’s give us 3 of them, and we bought the other 2 at the Raleigh Farmer’s Market. Hopefully by next year we will have an abundance of blueberries to eat.

Check Mate

Check out this awesome early game check mate. I am white, my queen has dived deep into the base, and the only piece off the board is one black pawn.  


Final Project Finished

The fifth and final project was the frames for a couple raised vegetable gardens.  This one didn’t take long at all. Thanks, Dad, for all your help! 



Emilee found a place to buy some chickens from, so we’re back to work on the chicken coop. It’s looking good.



Chicken Coop (Part 2)

On Sunday we continued the work after church. We put down chicken wire for the second floor.


We added posts onto which the walls will be hung.


And finally, Dad built the first door.


There’s still more to do, but it’s looking good.

Chicken Coop (Part 1)

Today we finally began building a chicken coop for the chickens that Emmy wants to buy. She and I had sketched out a few plans, and Dad came down for the weekend to help out.
We began with the base of the frame.

Then we built the frame up to the second level.

Once that was done we built and attached the trap door ramp, which lets the hens go from the ground floor to the second floor.


Finally we built up to the top.
