Well, I don’t know if this counts as a entry for the house, but it is close enough.

We finally have our vege garden in. Might be a bit late for a couple of things, but the rest should be fine. Hopefully we will be picking radishes in just a few weeks. Had to build a rough fence around it to keep the local wildlife out as well. Hopefully it is up to the job!

Grow damn you!

Also we picked up some fruit trees a couple of weekends ago and those should be planted quite soon as well. Some of the original birch trees have died due to the new soil around them and we will take those out and replace them with the fruit trees. We three different kinds of apples, pear, cherry, and plum trees. Probably a few years before we get much from them though. That’s if the deer and rabbits don’t get them first though.

Apples + sugar = cider

Ordered the brickwork for the back patio and raised garden last weekend too. They won’t arrive for another week or so yet though. Once they are in that means most of the backyard would be finished. Next there is just the side of the house and the driveway, but at least the driveway will probably be another year or so.

One of our previous additions has a new occupant as well now.
