Really cold nights are over with here. We need to move everything in pots out of the greenhouse. That’s tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers. I harvested our first cucumber this morning and the remainder of the indoor beets. We have all of our seeds planted in the garden except for pumpkins (too soon) and beans (too lazy). There’s lots going on right now!

I won’t miss the construction chaos one bit. A neighbor saw the porta potty in the driveway and asked if we were planning on staging a concert. It would be a small concert! The deck should be finished today, then the fun begins.

My friend Lora and I share a spot at our local farmer’s market. I bring lamb and eggs and honey and goats milk soap, she brings really awesomely yummy stuff like this giant chocolate cupcake. You really should stop by some time.

The deck project is moving along quickly. They are going to pause until the roof trusses get delivered, that’s supposed to be some time today. The deck seems big enough to roller skate on. Short track racing anyone?

On day 1, Brian and I pulled up the original decking. The contractors extended the floor joists out another 12 feet, put roofing support beams in place and started adding new decking. The far end of the deck was extended another 4 feet. The slope of the yard precludes it from going out any further. Awesome progress!
