Barn Raising, Day 6 – plus Garden Update

It was raining cats and dogs yesterday, but today we had progress again. We now have garage doors, vents, guttering & more. Also, rebar was installed for the concrete floor. We are hoping the weather holds out and we can have concrete delivered tomorrow for the interior. Concrete for the porch floor will happen the day after (weather permitting).

Here’s a picture of the plumbing – exciting, huh? It will be pretty darned exciting when it’s all finished.

And, it’s really hard to resist posting our dogwood tree. So I won’t…. resist, that is :)

How about a garden update? This is the first raised bed we planted about a month ago. Lettuce and onions, and maybe radishes in just a couple days! I can just taste the wilted lettuce now…

Oh, and may I post just one more pic? Please? Here’s our sweet and feisty JRT - “Banjo” – she will be 8 later this year.

That’s it for now. I promise. Hope you’re having a great week!
