Chris, I've seen pro and con regarding those hives.  I don't know.  I have been able to keep hives going for the summer, but have not been successful and maintaining more than one through the winter, and have not yet gotten honey.  Very frustrated.

Randy, I have a difficult time sitting still

It may not seem like it, but the goal is to reduce maintenance, effort and cost. Cost isnt bad, because some things cost almost noting after the start - trees, bushes. And I start a lot from seeds, some of those last for years and some are self-saved. Those transplanted trees and bushes wont need much maintenance, other than watering the first year. Some of the garden is downhill from the house, so the water barrel will help some with watering.

Today im off work. Will start some pepoer seeds snd germination test tomatoes. If I can, they will all be from old seeds.

Daniel, you make me tired just reading about your projects! The only thing I'm doing in the garden nowadays is tossing urine around!

I love those flowing borders. If the hills face south, that might help with light and warmth. Their raised beds are high, so warmer, and which is more accessible for less agile gardeners, very nice.

I line the insides of my wooden raised beds using saved dog food bags and chicken feed bags. Those are a very durable woven plastic. We also use them for tarps. im reusing some cinderblocks for new raised beds. Not sure they need the lining - might benefit if the cement raises the soil pH too much.

This is probably a great resource for Northern gardeners! Thanjs for posting!

The tree and shrub moving took a lot of planning and patience. Today I will dig a circle. Next day, dig a little deeper. Next day rest. Next day, slice under the root ball. Next day....

There is a good window of opportunity for moving shrubs and trees, and we are in it. I hope they survive and thrive in their new home.

Too much of these projects makes it a chore. Time to relax and renew and rest, as you say.

Soon... bare root trees msil order, and maybe start some seeds. No rush, there is plenty of time.

What's happening in your greenhouse?

Daniel, that is an amazing job you and Charlie completed! Your regalia adds to the charm. Hope you renew, refresh, and rest. You must feel quite proud of your projects completed. Your new kitchen is a cook's dream.

An ambitious project by Javan K. Bernakevitch of All Points Land Design and Permaculture BC, and Gord Hiebert of Element Eco-Design. They led a two and half day workshop/installation at Darfield Earthship Project.

"The most striking thing about the Condit Dam site today is the lack of evidence that the dam was ever there"   White Salmon Time Lapse.    "salmon had already started spawning above and below the former dam site before crews had even finished removing the last of the concrete" and tree planting in the former lake bed is discussed.

Gian Earthworms on remote Scottish Island.   more than a foot long.  Apparently, they grow larger due to a lack of predators.  Our chickens would make a meal of them in no time!

Daniel, I LOVE IT!  You and the dog. Wonderful! Congrats on getting the job(s) done. Well done.
