New potatoes

June 29, 2016

Here I am pulling the first potatoes of the summer. I planted two types and got a good mixed handful of both that we enjoyed last night with some smoked fish and a big salad.

Our own strawberries

We just picked the very first strawberries off our own bushes!

Strawberries!

Nest

June 9, 2016

These days, when I need a haircut, I usually get E to do it for me with a trimmer. In the warmer months, we do it out on the back deck and just let the wind take all the cut hair away. I’ve sometimes wondered where it all ends up and today I got at least a partial answer.

It’s been quite windy today and when I was out back taking out the compost, I found a blown-down bird’s nest on the lawn. The outer body of the nest is made with dry grasses, but the inside is lined with my hair!
