our little house - it's starting to come together

Well over the last weeks we are finally starting to making progress with our backyard improvement project and creating a little suburban live-style vegetable garden.

newly installed fence next to our wild roses and heirloom tomatoes

the worlds smallest orange tree. Hopefully in 3-5 years it's going to bear some fruits.

bell pepper, zucchini and half dead sun gold tomatoes. Still have to build 3 more boxes for artichokes and arugula in the winter time

basil, chives, mint, oregano, stevia. Need another barrel for rosemary, tarragon and sage.

finished restoring a Stanley #6c hand plane from the late 1940s. Need to find some 3x3x3 maple to redo the knob to make it match my carved tote a bit better.

rasberries a week ago, sadly they did not survive the 120F days we had and we might have to replace the canes

don't pay attention for a minute and the puppies are taking over the bed... I guess this is another lost cause.
