This is one of those blog entries that will go on and on and on - at least in pictures. I don't have any new pictures of the triplets but they are still doing as well as can be expected. Jack is off the ventilator but still has oxygen over his face, He doesn't like it. The girls are doing well. I think Chloe is free of everything. Keep your prayers and good thoughts coming. They are helping!
Joe McShannon has been here since last week. He is part of the WWOOF program (Willing Workers on Organic Farms) and has done wonders with the garden. (It wasn't easy!). It's been hot, hot, hot, as you know, so he's been suffering quietly in the carriage house. I am including lots of photos that Joe took of the land. Dave has shown Joe how to fish - and (no pun intended) - I think he's hooked! Dave gave Joe the nickname of "Catfish." Very appropriate as Joe loves to catch catfish - and has caught some really big ones!
Dave finished framing in the greenhouse, and it's looking fine!
I spent Sunday with Karl Tupper of Pesticide Action Network (from California) at Anita and Brian's farm becoming certified on the Drift Catcher. The Drift Catcher measures pesticides in the air. I will share the Drift Catcher with Anita and Brian. I also brought home some lovely organic eggs from their farm. I'm all prepared for my sister, Linda, and family's visit here later this week. I can't wait to see them!
I also found a lot of ugly looking beach scum around the lake, so I took a picture of it. Lucky you! I am sharing it with you!
So enjoy the photos and know there is much going on here this summer. It's been quite a whirlwind summer, and I am loving it! I still miss the triplets, but I will see them in a month or two.
I hope summer is treating you kindly - apart from the big sudden wind/rain storm we had yesterday. I guess Paw Paw was without power from 7AM to 2PM. Wow! We have lots of downed branches here, but nothing terrible.
